799. Bangkok Part 5 | Exploring our Neighbourhood

Bangkok river view
We've been out of quarantine for a few days now and I finally have a bit of time to update! We've had quite an eventful few days (probably a combination of being stuck inside for so long plus there's sooo much to do and see in Bangkok) - we explored our neighbourhood a bit (Bang Rak), visited Iconsiam mall, visited Chatuchak market, visited Asiatique, visited Chinatown, and walked around a lot. We are loving the city so far and having an amazing time. The weather here is extremely hot but its bearable/I am slowly getting used to it. I really love the street food culture and the shopping! Everything is so cheap. The Thai people are also extremely friendly.

The photo above is the view from our place. I really love it. We are staying at State Tower which is the building where the movie Hangover was filmed. There is an amazing rooftop bar/restaurant which I'm excited to check out.

Bangkok street food Our first meal! There's street food stands literally everywhere here.

They were only $15 CAD!! (& they are real from an actual store - not fake ones I found on the street)

Jok Prince Bangkok
This congee place (Jok Prince) is really good! It's located right behind our building. We came a couple times for breakfast already. They have been in the Michelin guide for many years and is really inexpensive (like $2-3 a bowl)
