Bangkok - Day 1

[3 Oct 2017] We arrived Bangkok around 3:30pm and reached our hotel (Picnic Hotel) about 5:30pm.

The room is spacious with snails deco instead of elephant.

Along the street of our hotel, there were many restaurants and food stalls. We simply went into a restaurant and tried out their Tom Yum less soup. It's very spicy but yummy.

We continued our food hunting in one of the night market in Bangkok. 

Papaya Salad with small shrimps:

Dinner with Charcoal seafood steamboat. Nice aroma of the soup with plenty of Thai herbs.
