After waiting for months, finally the Khao Yai-Bangkok trip with my colleagues is here.
We arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport at about 12pm and had our lunch at Magic Food Joint. You got to purchase the vouchers at the entrance and pay using them. For unused vouchers, you can get a refund so not to worry.
Collected our rented car at Thai-Rent-A-Car. We picked Mitsubishi Mirage which is good enough for us.
It was a 2.5 hrs drive and there were 2 tolls at 30 THB each. Traffic wasn't as bad as we thought but there were lots of heavy vehicles on the highway.
Our first stop is Khao Yai was Midwinter Green.
Nothing much there for photo-taking so we didn't stay for long.
Next was The Chocolate Factory.
The restaurant/shop is 2 -storey high.
We ordered the Chocolate Dome to share but it was disappointing.
The sky was turning dark then so we decided to head to Kua Kampan for dinner first. It was almost full house but we still managed to get a table.
We ordered a seafood salad which was very spicy, steamed fish with lime, tom yum seafood soup and stir-fry sunflower seedlings (favourite!).
Headed to check-in at Botanica Hotel which was full of greenery and reminded me of Shangri-La Hotel Singapore.
Let me show you the room photos first.
The 3 of us shared a suite with a plunge pool and of course had to take a dip. The water was freezing cold.
