Bangkok – Chocolate Ville, Sirocco, Myst ❤

“Taking a break isn’t indulgent; it’s a necessity for living longer.”

I have been very stressed up with my work, as I wasn’t sure if I am really doing the thing I want. I know I need a break. A break away from work that is sucking all my energy. I need a change in perspective.(。•́︿•̀。)

Packed my bag, & it’s time to travel again.

So, I will be blogging about my 4D3N Bangkok Trip.

Hello, Bangkok.
I am back after a year. ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Our home for the next 4 days – Eastin Hotel Makkasan.

It’s a 4 star hotel. We stayed in the superior connecting rooms (with breakfast), for RM435 per night. It’s about RM215 per room, per night. &, yes, FREE WiFi available.

Average loacation, not as good as my previous stay in Bangkok, no BTS nearby. There’s Taxi & tuktuk outside the hotel, but it is not easy to get a metered taxi. You have to really negotiate the price of the taxi. However, it’s only less than 10 mins walk to Pratunam Market, Platinum Mall, & the other major malls in Bangkok city. Also, there’s lots of street food around the hotel area, & a 7-11 just a stone throw away.

Room.
Clean & comfortable.

Met up with Jordan who’s already in Bangkok.
Quick change, & did some #wefie before we get started with our trip!

First stop : CHOCOLATE VILLE, a newly built European-themed village in Bangkok.
(Everyone is raving about this place online.) ✌(‘ω’✌)

I did a reservation at their FB Page. We took a metered taxi there, it cost us 250baht. The journey is 45mins away from our hotel due to heavy traffic. (If you’re coming here, take a map to show to the taxi driver because they might not be familar with this place, we directed the taxi driver through WAZE.)

Open daily from 4pm – 12am.

「LOVE」in Chocolate Ville. ❤

I have made the reservation at 5pm. We were running late due the some delay cause by the heavy traffic, & we were reminded that the reservation will be automatically cancel if we are late. So, we need to rush to our table before exploring the beautiful place.

The menu. Well, the name is very misleading.
There’s nothing really chocolaty in this Chocolate Ville. ƪ(‾ε‾“)ʃ

We ordered:

Mixed German Sausage (195 baht) // Ham & Mushroom Pizza (235 baht) // Spare Rib (425baht) // German Ham Hock (420Baht) (all price quoted are nett of Thai Baht)

Food was just average. It’s quite disappointing to be honest. The pizza is so bad, it’s cold & almost tasteless. Well at least, the price is still reasonable. But trust me, after this post you will understand why is this a restaurant that you probably would not want to come back for the food, but for the environment, you would!

好吧,接受事實吧!來這,還不都是為它的環境而來的嗎?ʅ(*´◡`)ʃ

地方這麼漂亮,不拍多點照片真的會對不起自己。
相信我,這裡每個地方都適合拍照。

Even though it’s a week day, the place is packed. We didn’t get the riverside seat. But still, everywhere here is beautiful, so it doesn’t really matter. (♥ω♥ ) ~♪

We ordered a bottle of wine (950 Baht).
Wine was good, I am glad.

Oh, we got a seat over-seeing the light house.

Dining here, you will start wondering if you are really in Bangkok.
Enjoying a glass of wine in this fairy-tale like mini town is just amazing.(◡‿◡✿)

It is best to visit this place in the evening around 5pm before the sunset, you can first enjoy your dinner while waiting for the sunset & for the lights to be up. The whole place is truly fascinating when all the lights are up.

Now, this is what you call B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.
Look at the reflections of the lights on the water, so unreal; it’s just overwhelming!

♡o。.(✿ฺ。 ✿ฺ)

夜幕低垂,天色漸暗後更是浪漫死了。

There’s this Maine harbor’s look-alike lighthouse located in the center of the whole ville. You are allow to climb up to have a 360 degree panoramic scenic view of the whole place.

It’s still christmas-winter season in Chocolate ville.
Snow falling from the lighthouse that night.

小妹去了英國,whatsapp了幾張下雪的照片過來。
我呢,在還沒機會去英國以前,就在這過過癮吶。呵呵~ ᘛᐡᐤᐡᘚ

We explored the place after our dinner. Every spot here is so beautiful, I actually think this place is meant for photoshooting instead of dining. ┐( ˘_˘)┌

It’s a whole new spot with different setting in every few steps.

You just couldn’t stop snapping photo. IF your camera battery died when you reach here, you will be feeling suicidal the entire day. no joke.

Vintage little red wooden gas station.
Definitely instagram worthy, now I understand why is this place on everyone’s lips.

(*’∀’人)♥

這裡的可愛的造景,讓我失控般的瘋狂拍照。
嗯,不錯,我已陷入拍照的深淵中。這地方實在美得讓我無可自拔。❤⃛

兜兜轉轉,怎麼還是回到你的懷抱裡。
謝謝你無怨無悔的愛。

♡(˃͈ દ ˂͈ ༶ )

A pure candid before a picture perfect.
Love both the shots! ❤⃛

真的好漂亮,好夢幻。
這裡的裝飾擺設都很可愛,我真的好像跑到童話世界裡去了。

♡〜٩( ╹▿╹ )۶〜♡

I felt like Alice in the Wonderland. *laughs

I know I know, I seem to join in the crowd, raving about this place.
But, it’s indeed beautiful! A must-visit if you are in Bangkok.

(୨୧•͈ᴗ•͈)◞*♡

Left the place around 7.30pm & got back to hotel on 8pm.
The is the city view from my room, not bad!

Didn’t really ate much in Chocolate Ville earlier (too busy taking photos); went to 7-11, grabbed a can of Chang beer & Thai instant noodle. It’s a perfect combo! (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

Then, we quickly get change & head out again.

Second stop: Sirocco & Sky Bar, LeBua at State Tower, 63rd floor.
(title as the world’s highest al fresco restaurant, & was featured in the movie Hangover 2)

#annoyingbff recommended this place, & mentioned that it’s a #MustGo.

We took a taxi there, cost us 150baht. & our plan is to go there to have a drink and a gander at the marvelous 360 panoramic view of the entire Bangkok city.

The signature dome.

The price of a cocktail here is around 500baht/glass. However, the place is too crowded, it’s difficult to get any view. So, we left without getting any drinks.ヾ(❛ε❛“)ʃ

我,特愛夜景,更喜歡從高處瀏覽整個城市的感覺。
這裡很漂亮,可是美有什麼特別感覺,總覺得吉隆坡MARINI 57的夜景好像更美。

可是嘛只要有你在,在哪都一樣美。
(/∇\*)。o○♡ #love

Third stop: Myst, Thonglor (rooftop bar)

Recommended by Jordan’s cousin who’s based in Thailand.
Metered taxi from Lebua Tower to Thonglor costs us 120baht.

This placed is filled by mostly Thais. It’s unexpectedly good. Good music, good ambiance & reasonable prices! Definitely a hidden gem in Bangkok! ( ᐛ )و❤

We got ourselves a outdoor seats.
Oh, i love the atmosphere!

We didnt just ordered beer. We ordered a small Long Island jar (1200baht).
The way they serve the drink is pretty interesting!

We drink through these long colorful straws!

The long island is good, the taste is really strong, definitely get you hammered real quick. Look at his face, he totally underestimated it. haha!!(•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

MYST is very well known for their impressive presentation of drinks! I couldn’t agree more on this. This is the RAINBOW BOOM James ordered for Liang (for his belated birthday). It’s basically creme smoke boom + rainbow shot! It’s a waste that I didn’t get to record it. (⌣_⌣”)

However, here’s a video I found online – rainbow boom!❤

We enjoyed ourself a lot, & ended the night good!
Took a metered taxi back to hotel, it’s only 100baht. Good deal.

Feeling a little hungry, grabbed a bolognese spaghetti at the 7-11 down the road for only 37baht. Not bad at all. (๑╹ڡ╹)

With that, we called it a night.
To be continue!

Good night! ♥”
