Sawatdee Ka Bangkok! (Day Two - PART THREE)

After we're done visiting the lovely cats at Caturday Cat Cafe, we returned to Lemontea Hotel to drop our stuffs bought from Platinum Market. From there we moved forward following our schedule made by Jas and Elie. Apparently there's this awesome place with beautiful scenery called Chocolate Ville in Bangkok.

Observed the map and we realize that it's pretty far. Asked several taxi for a price but most of them doesn't want to use meter and charged a super high amount. All above 1000THB eh! We don't even earn dollars...why la the amount...LOL!

Our hotel staff were nice enough to help us talk with the taxi drivers into using meters. However none wants to comply to the request. Coz it was pretty late already and it looked like jam is everywhere, so we ended up settling with a taxi who quoted 700THB (or was it 800THB? But definitely one of these price la) for both ways. Sounds reasonable enough la since the driver will fetch us there, wait till we're done and fetch us back to our hotel. *satisfied

As expected, it was jam everywhere. And because it seemed like it's gonna be a long ride, I was being paranoid that I checked on Google Map and Waze whenever I can. LOLOLOL!!

For I sat in front and them ladies sat on the back seat, I tried befriending the driver. Kononnya I want to keep everyone awake. LOL! Offered him my beloved Eclipse sweet in Lemon flavour (given by Elie earlier) and he accepted it. To which later those two ladies keep on teasing non stop. OTL

Luckily our taxi driver at that time was SUPER OMEGA NICE that we reached our destination safely. And surprisingly we weren't sure if he trusted us so much, he's being kind or that he haven't thought of the possibilities that we might betray him and go for another taxi for our ride back to the hotel. Coz seriously he didn't asked for any deposit as we are about to leave the taxi. In fact we asked him if he needed any deposit or half of the payment. But he insisted that we can pay it later...And so...

They said it was the CANDY EFFECT...TROLOLOLOL!!!

Chocolate Ville
(351, Khan Na Yao, Bangkok 10230, Thailand)

Upon stepping your feet on Chocolate Ville, you can see a whole place decorated with nice buildings and such. It made me so excited about this place right away~ I placement and everything. Hahaha...Spotted many other tourists there too! Most probably their tour guide brought them there as they came in groups. And of course there were locals too!

Took the last three pictures from the "lighthouse". It wasn't that high but I think I have a slight Acrophobia. Coz it feels like I can fall anytime if luck wasn't being nice...HAHAHA! Plus I was holding my HP and DSLR I was kinda paranoid of having these two falls down the lake. Above all the place to walk around was a narrow one with nothing to hold onto except for the guard rail in which I don't trust its staying power...LOL! Amazed by Elie and Jas as they managed to stay up there for so long!

Tried monopod to take picture for the first time and failed miserably

Food wise it was average. Going towards pricey range but not that expensive. Still affordable la. And definitely the amount was worth it as you can enjoy looking at the scenery. Do give this place a try!

It's best to take pictures during daylight as your camera can capture better quality photos during the broad daylight. However this place gets better as the sky turns dark. The atmosphere changed. So beautiful and romantic that I think you can propose someone at this place! HAHAHA!

That's all for today's post. I'll end this with our favorite tagline found on the way back to our hotel...
