4th and last day in Bangkok - I'm gonna miss it!!

Pratunam and Baiyokee tower no.2 - Pantip plaza - MBK Center - Chinatown - massage no.3 - Bayan tree sky restaurant

sunny 42 °C
View Thaïlande on CatAndre's travel map.

When we leave the hotel to meet up Igor at Pratunam, we run into an official procession (the King??) which blocks us for some time, even though we took a motorcycle to get there...

We go to the Baiyokee 2 tower where we meet Igor and Flo and find so many crazy designer stuff.
4 floors with nothing but pants, tee-shirts, stylee pockets (like the tape one I bought), and so many designer things...
Fashion definitely does not only happen in the big hubs of the western world...

We go back to Pantip plaza to get Igor's dvds and spend again a lot of time looking at useful (?) stuff. Flo and I buy some iPod/iPhone speakers and we look for Igor for a very long while before we can head back to MBK to buy Flo another phone...

At the MBK center, Flo buys another phone and I find some pashminas, the Beats by Dr Dre speakers and a few other things...

Igor takes off and we head to Chinatown.
We spent some time walking in the wonderful chinatown after having chinese food at Texas Suki restaurant (great Dim Sum!). We saw the gold shops and all the walking streets where Chinese basically sell in hundreds anything that can exist. We left (hard time to find a taxi) to go back to the hotel.

We get massage no.3 close to the hotel (they start with our backs?!?) where Flo had gone on the 1st day. We leave for the sky bar of the Bayan Tree Hotel.

We don't have shoes but oh well the Bayan provides... We go up to the 59th floor and go up 2 more flights of stairs to arrive to Bangkok's breathtaking view. We have cocktails and great food (but we're not hungry, so it's a bit of a waste :((. We enjoy the view before heading back to the Davis. Flo feels nostalgic looking at lights in a tree in the courtyard.

Well deserved night before heading off to the beach!! We pack for the first time of many many many to come and enjoy a good night's sleep.
