Seriously a little bit slow because quite a lot of friends asking me to know more about Bangkok. Each question I will try my best to do a blog post for it, as it is too much to blog about my 8 days 7 nights Bangkok trip!
*Check it out if the word of LINK beside each question , if it is not BLUE yet maybe I still work it out!*
1. Which Data plan is suggested?
As nowadays we cannot survive without INTERNET, if not mistaken lah. LOL.
BTW I'm using AIS for the entire 8 days at Bangkok, by paying 310 Bath. It gives you 7 days unlimited data for me to travel over the Bangkok using Google Map and Foursquare, of cos keep in touch with my loved one. However I didn't use on SMS or Call, so the 8th day, so I spend the rest of my credit purchasing unlimited LINE chat on my 8th day, to keep in touch with my bf.
However, if you are going for few days only, but still want to on internet all the time, you still can take this plan because 310 bath for 7 days is super cheap, if you start international roaming, it will cause u RM38, which roughly 380 bath for A DAY. If not, you still can use WiFi at your hotel/hostel!
You can get it at Don Mueang Airport Bangkok, if you're taking AirAsia flight!
Before that I was doing survey on internet plan and I found another sim pack, which most of the people using it, because it can be purchase by online. HAPPY TOURIST SIM.
Both are user friendly as AIS and Happy Tourist Sim gave 3G all the time! You can get it at any 7-11 stores as well! XD

2. Where I stay at Bangkok? - link
Well, I stayed at Lub d, a very different backpacker hostel. This is my first time staying at hostel, as my bf and family quite worry at first. However, after you read my blog post about Lub d, I guarantee you gonna change all of your mind because it is safe, clean, friendly, home-like hostel!
There're 2 branch of Lub d, Silom and Siam Square. I will tell more about in Lub d blog post.

3. Where is a MUST for shopping? - link
As they said Bangkok is a shopping heaven especially for us? Yeap, I wound like to recommend Chatuchak and Platinum Fashion Mall.
Chatuchak is a world largest weekend market, which open from 6am-6pm.
WED-THU : Plants & Flowers
FRI : Wholesale Day
SAT-SUN: Miscellaneous (Basically everything from all part of Thailand)
Platinum Fashion Mall, a place must go if you love fashion! Each stall selling different fashion stuff that you gonna love it a lot.
So yeah, didn't buy much this time as budget is so limited for me lol
I still wanna say, Thailand is the best shopping heaven for young ppl like me. LOL
4. A place MUST to visit?
Yeap, there's a lot of place is a must to visit.
a. Mahachai Seafood Market + Maeklong Railway Market - link
A market with train built in, whereby all the ppl there need to collect all the veges and fruits when the train cross over the market. I will upload the video again in Maeklong Railway Market blog post.
b. Floating Market - link
Floating market that you cannot miss during your Thailand vacation! You can choose to walk beside the beside the river or use boat to turn around the river, but need to pay la.
c. Asiatique - link
If not because the curfew extended to 1am, I'm sure I cannot take this nice night view at Asiatique, a must if you love romantic view and if you come with your loved one.
d. Erawan Shrine (四面佛) if you r a Buddhist
I don't mind to visit Erawan Shrine as it is a tourist place, heard of that it is very spiritful. But because I'm a Catholic so I didn't go inside, just stay outside and take nice picture! Each religion have it's own good, just learn how to respect them.
5. Any other place to VISIT?
a . Grand Palace of Bangkok - link
A quite beautiful place but extremely hot place to go also. Btw entrance fee is 500 bath, so we didn't go in, just walk around the road side, then proceed to other place.

Famous temple Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha). It's the one of the largest temple complexes in the city and famous with its giant reclining Buddha that measures 46 metres long, and covered in gold leaf.
