Bangkok

Hi all!

Been up since 8am after a lovely long sleep. Think I fell asleep just before 9pm last night was very tired after all that travelling. Been food shopping, packing up and done loads of washing only got gym left but will go there later on this evening. 

Anyhow I promised I would tell you about Bangkok so here we go!

Bangkok was hot and crowded just as I expected. 
It also had GREAT shopping and cool bars and restaurants.

The shopping was so much better than I expected but didn't buy very much since I didn't have much time. Me and mum went to Siam Square which is the trendy part of Bangkok and here you will see lots of fashionable boys and girls taking photos for their blogs.
Around Siam Square there are a few different shopping centres and they have a range of different shops and due to the low VAT everything is a lot cheaper than the UK. Great huh?

As I mentioned we didn't have much time for shopping but I got myself THE eyelash curler from Shu Uemura. Not only was it cheaper than here but they also had 15% discount in the shop that day so I got it for less than £13, yay :) Rob got himself a pair of converse shoes from the newly opened Converse shop. I think he paid a bit less than £30 so much cheaper than here. I kinda regret I didn't get a pair as well.. Typical! 
In the "nicer" shopping centres you wont find any copies but out on the street and in MBK centre you will find plenty of "Mulberry" bags and "Mac" make-up which is all fake. 

Me and mum also did some shopping in the small stalls around Siam Square and they sell so much nice clothes and jewellery I do regret not getting more stuff. Next time for sure!

Oh god this post got very long, ooopsie ;) Photo time!
