After leaving HuaLamphong Station, my friend and I went to Pratunam where we did some shopping.  I wanted to buy a cap there but did not find one that I like.

We then ended back at Central World shopping mall which we went the day before. I managed to find a cap that I like at this more upscale Zen Department Store. Sorry, no photo of my new cap.

I think all the shopping made us hungry so we had an early dinner at The Terrace Restaurant in Central World. I had this Pork Loin Steak with green curry sauce served with fried Sang yod rice and butter. Sang yod rice is a type of healthy rice grown in Phatthalung province.

My friend ate Pad Thai (I did not take any picture of it).

After that, we just walked around the shopping mall. I thought the decoration at this part of the mall was interesting.

Gigantic floating book!

This is the SF World Cinema on the 7th floor of the mall, if I am not mistaken.

No, we did not go and watch any movies there. I don't fancy watching movies when I travel.

This is an interesting art piece.

We spotted the popular premium frozen yogurt store Buddhi Belly and decided to get ourselves some dessert.

We chose original with toppings of mango, strawberry and pineapple.

That's medium size cup and costs us about 100 baht.

It was yummy! I should have ordered a whole cup for myself. Lol.

Words written on the cup explain most of it so I do not have to describe anything.

After finishing the yogurt, we walked around some more. It would be my last night in Bangkok. We would be leaving the next day, so I wanted to explore the mall a bit more.

Took some more pictures.

I like the decoration here.

I think we only left when the mall was about to close. Lol. It was a good third day in Bangkok.

A Visit To Hualamphong Station In Bangkok

I did not plan to visit the Hualamphong Station also known as Bangkok Railway Station but you will soon learn why I ended up there.

OK, we are back at Day 3 of my Bangkok trip back in 2014. Sorry for the outdated post but I am doing my best to complete blogging about this trip.

To refresh your memory, my friend and I started out Day 3 with a visit to Wat Ratchabophit before going on a search for the famous Nuttaporn Ice Cream.

Right after that, we took a tuk tuk to Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall.

This tuk tuk driver drove so fast that my cap flew off halfway and landed on the road behind us. I did not manage to retrieve it so I had to say goodbye to my cap! It was a bit nostalgic for me as that cap had been with me for my past trips. Oh well, there was no point getting upset over it and I did buy a new cap later at the shopping mall. Haha!

Unfortunately for us, the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall was closed that day, most likely due to the ongoing political rally in Bangkok at that time. However, I did manage to capture a few photos of the aftermath of the protest rally which happened a few days before. Check out the photos HERE.

After walking around for some time, we flagged down a taxi to take us to the Hualamphong MRT Station. But since we were there, I decided to visit the Hualamphong Railway Station nearby.

Also known as Krungthep Station, this railway station is the main railway station in Bangkok and serves over 130 trains (according to Wikipedia).

There were shops and eateries on both floors of the station.

Satisfied that I had visited this famous train station, we made our move.

Where did we go next? We were getting quite hungry, so it's definitely a place to eat!
