Lub d Hostel, Bangkok

Where I stayed at Bangkok last time? *We stayed at LUB D!*


Happiness is going for VACATION!!

Yeap, we didn't choose to stay in hotel because there's 3 of us!


Normally there's bed for single, double. or double single and family room. Hence Christy and Joey decided to choose backpacker's hostel especially Lub d Bangkok as it has a lot of good comments from backpackers even bloggers as well.

So we decided to stay there!
All booking can be done online, this is super convenient and don't need to worry if you travel to Bangkok and got no place to stay! Book here: www.lubd.com

.

.

There's 2 Lub d at Bangkok, Lub d Silom and Lub d Siam Square.
We stayed at Lub d Silom for the first few days, then followed by Lub d Siam Square! Both we like as it's got their own pro and con.

Let's talk about Lub d Silom as it is my first stay at Bangkok XD
Lub d is quite tourist friendly as THEY GIVE US GUIDE after you placed your booking! So after you landed at Bangkok Don Mueang (DMK) International Airport, you just follow the guide, then you can reach Lub d Silom!


We need to pay the rest of the booking fees as one ppl per night is around 500 bath for both branch, and 100 bath for key deposit.


We're staying at 6 females sharing dom! There's also 6 lockers for each of us. So yeah you can lock your important stuff inside.

Let's see how's it look like outside.
Female sharing dom located at 4th floor, for Silom branch!



They also have small cinema, washing machine, dryer and so on! The design is very cool and seriously I like it so much as it really feel like HOME.


This is how's their counter look like.


This place also the place for breakfast, and free breakfast is serve! They got white bread, butter and fruit jam, biscuits, tea, malt drink, is given!


Another breakfast area which you can buy other food if you don't want to eat their breakfast, or buy some fruits from there, like one big banana for 10 bath? Still worth it compared to hotel food XD


Their 'Living Room'



Their tour guide information counter, if you hv no idea where to go, just follow Lub d tour guide, and it is quite reasonable!


We take one day tour guide to go to Maeklong Railway Market and also Floating Market the next day for 1800 bath, everything included! Yeah, 1800 bath per person, will update that day blog post as soon as possible.

There's a lot of place you can go and activity that you can do!


Variety of books, included chinese books! You can read it if you hv nothing to do! XD


Our first night at Bangkok! But first let us take a SELFIE first XD


There's also 6 computers to given to let us online!


Opps, before I forget, wanted to show that Lub d Bangkok Silom branch again win the certificate of excellence continuous for few years!




********************************

Moving to Lub d Siam Square after 3 day stayed at Lub d Silom!

Actually hor if you like to eat chili, here's a good chance to let u stay maximum 3 night for free! If you can eat 10 chili? Don't worry, milk is given to cool you down XD


And finish it like Joey?




Christy and Joey made it, but I didn't because my gastric cannot tahan with too much of chili T_____T



Tadaaa, remember to try these all chili if you want to challenge before you check in your hotel, if 1 chili is eaten, means 10% off, if 5 chili are eaten, means 50% off for that night!


How Lub d Siam square look like, it is exactly beside the Siam train station (BTS)! After going down then you can see it already, btw it is super convenient as it is near to the train station, shopping malls, and most important 7-11! XD

Female dom 4 ppl sharing room!


They also have a big mirror for you to take selfie and OOTD!


Where you enter you can see a living room too!


Their check in counter, and also Lub d bar! XD


There's also place for you to chill, enjoy! I was busying writing autograph for Lub d because it is last day already! 



Also their 'Living Room'!


Place to chill and really look like home for me too!

They also have computer to let us online! BTW WiFi are all available for both Lub d branch! and the speed is kinda fast as well. Small cinema, washing machine, cloth dryer, place for you to dry your cloth all available at Lub d Siam Square! Pretty cool XD


Okay, guess what is the van for? You never guess it right? XD 


Yeap, it is a small bar! Creative right? Photo from https://www.facebook.com/LubdHostel



I preferably like Siam Square Lub d because it is more to train station (BTS) and city center, as well as 7-11. Yeap, Silom Lub d kinda far from train station and also 7-11, but Silom Lub d have better and bigger environment more spaces to stay, perhaps Siam Square Lub d have limited space as it located at city town! So if you want to stay at Siam Square Lub d, remember to book earlier! Enjoy! XD

Frequent Questions Ask in Bangkok Trip

Finally got my time for me to write my Bangkok blog post.
Seriously a little bit slow because quite a lot of friends asking me to know more about Bangkok. Each question I will try my best to do a blog post for it, as it is too much to blog about my 8 days 7 nights Bangkok trip!

*Check it out if the word of LINK beside each question , if it is not BLUE yet maybe I still work it out!*


1. Which Data plan is suggested?
As nowadays we cannot survive without INTERNET, if not mistaken lah. LOL.
BTW I'm using AIS for the entire 8 days at Bangkok, by paying 310 Bath. It gives you 7 days unlimited data for me to travel over the Bangkok using Google Map and Foursquare, of cos keep in touch with my loved one. However I didn't use on SMS or Call, so the 8th day, so I spend the rest of my credit purchasing unlimited LINE chat on my 8th day, to keep in touch with my bf.

However, if you are going for few days only, but still want to on internet all the time, you still can take this plan because 310 bath for 7 days is super cheap, if you start international roaming, it will cause u RM38, which roughly 380 bath for A DAY. If not, you still can use WiFi at your hotel/hostel!

You can get it at Don Mueang Airport Bangkok, if you're taking AirAsia flight!



Before that I was doing survey on internet plan and I found another sim pack, which most of the people using it, because it can be purchase by online. HAPPY TOURIST SIM.


Both are user friendly as AIS and Happy Tourist Sim gave 3G all the time! You can get it at any 7-11 stores as well! XD

Happy Tourist Sim: www.dtac.co.th/en/prepaid/products/touristsim.html


2. Where I stay at Bangkok? - link
Well, I stayed at Lub d, a very different backpacker hostel. This is my first time staying at hostel, as my bf and family quite worry at first. However, after you read my blog post about Lub d, I guarantee you gonna change all of your mind because it is safe, clean, friendly, home-like hostel!

There're 2 branch of Lub d, Silom and Siam Square. I will tell more about in Lub d blog post.

3. Where is a MUST for shopping? - link
As they said Bangkok is a shopping heaven especially for us? Yeap, I wound like to recommend Chatuchak and Platinum Fashion Mall.


Chatuchak is a world largest weekend market, which open from 6am-6pm.
WED-THU : Plants & Flowers
FRI : Wholesale Day
SAT-SUN: Miscellaneous (Basically everything from all part of Thailand)


Platinum Fashion Mall, a place must go if you love fashion! Each stall selling different fashion stuff that you gonna love it a lot.


So yeah, didn't buy much this time as budget is so limited for me lol


I still wanna say, Thailand is the best shopping heaven for young ppl like me. LOL


4. A place MUST to visit? 
Yeap, there's a lot of place is a must to visit. 

a. Mahachai Seafood Market + Maeklong Railway Market - link
A market with train built in, whereby all the ppl there need to collect all the veges and fruits when the train cross over the market. I will upload the video again in Maeklong Railway Market blog post.

b. Floating Market - link
Floating market that you cannot miss during your Thailand vacation! You can choose to walk beside the beside the river or use boat to turn around the river, but need to pay la.


c. Asiatique - link
If not because the curfew extended to 1am, I'm sure I cannot take this nice night view at Asiatique, a must if you love romantic view and if you come with your loved one.


d. Erawan Shrine (四面佛) if you r a Buddhist
I don't mind to visit Erawan Shrine as it is a tourist place, heard of that it is very spiritful. But because I'm a Catholic so I didn't go inside, just stay outside and take nice picture! Each religion have it's own good, just learn how to respect them.




5. Any other place to VISIT? 
a . Grand Palace of Bangkok - link
A quite beautiful place but extremely hot place to go also. Btw entrance fee is 500 bath, so we didn't go in, just walk around the road side, then proceed to other place.

Famous temple Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha). It's the one of the largest temple complexes in the city and famous with its giant reclining Buddha that measures 46 metres long, and covered in gold leaf.
