What’s in Bangkok for a Filipino traveler?

We hear about Bangkok. We hear about Thailand, but what’s to see when you’re from Manila or the Philippines? What’s to consider  when visiting Bangkok as a Filipino?

Clueless Commuter visits Thailand

I decided to join my parents during their trip in Thailand. It’s not everyday to you get to have a chance to.

Last July 2017, I stayed at Bangkok for four (4) days and three (3) nights. My parents attended a homecoming reunion hosted by one of my father’s college batchmates from Thailand.

I have a knack on going with loved ones and friends on trips. I do this so I can spend time with them and benefit from the discount you get with group travels. Alternatively, I do clueless commuting (like my solo Japan trip last November 2016).

1. Shopping

Fashion

Too bad I wasn’t geared for this. I don’t have words enough to explain how Bangkok is ‘THE’ place to be if you want to go for a wardrobe overhaul. Converted to Philippine Pesos, you can get fashion finds for as low as PhP 300.  All this already with the quality, fabric and style as what I see in Forever 21 stores.

Flowing dresses priced somewhere around P2200 when converted to PhP.

Their fabric, cloth quality and cut are refined craftsmanship. They are comfortable to wear. They have the flair. They set the trends (you see in Manila). The clothes are flattering.

Exquisite prints and quality fabrics are used for Bangkok clothes.

If I get to visit Bangkok, Thailand again, I’ll make sure to save up and bring home an enormous amount of fashion finds with half the cost.
