Bangkok Trip post Covid-19

Bangkok post Covid-19 2023

A short 4D3N shopping and eating trip to our favourite city - Bangkok, trip post-Covid-19. As the trip was essentially a "mommy and girls' shopping trip, my personal plan was to do a solo exploration of some famed eateries around Bangkok.

In this article, like to share some pictures shot during the blue hour at Marina Bay....
