Bangkok, fruitless searching, pampered to the max and exploring a luxury food court

Bangkok

What if you wanted to find a place and you couldn't find it? That was the thing with vintage shop/restaurant and bar Moose. We took a taxi for an hour but after some struggles we arrived at the place...but it didn't exist anymore. So never go to find Moose in the Sukhumvit area, because it is gone. We wandered around the streets in Sukhumvit to find a nice place to eat some Thai food afterwards...but unfortunately we saw only Japanese, Korean en Western restaurants. We took another taxi, a one hour drive back again and ended up in a tiny street food restaurant opposite of our hotel where we finally had a nice cold Singha beer and lovely Pad Thai. Traveling is searching, wandering and exploring. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

The next day we left the busy world far behind us by visiting the Oasis Spa in the heart of Sukhumvit in the middle of Bangkok. What a great place. Bangkok Oasis Spa is a dream place for those searching for a relaxing escape. The charming spa is dedicated to soothing sensations and blends gracious and gentle service with wonderful treatments. The healing ambience of its delicate decorations and stunning surroundings only adds to a truly exotic world of beauty, serenity and pleasure. We loved our one hour aromatherapy Hot Oil Massage. This massage perfectly combines the best of Western Swedish massage therapy and Eastern Thai massage techniques along with Aromatherapy. Make a reservation because this place is really popular. It is high end but worth the money!

Totally relaxed we got a free ride from the Oasis Spa to the luxury mall, the EM District, next to the Phrom Phong BTS Station on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Road. It is an ambitious multi-billion baht retail project comprising three different luxury shopping malls. The District EM is worth a visit, no matter what! Because it includes the most luxury clean food court we've ever seen, the Quartier Foodhall! You have to buy special coins to pay for the food and you can choose from all kinds of Thai Food in separate booth's. Wander around all those choices of food and decide what to eat after having seen all those delicious kinds of food. The EM District is the latest business district and tourist destination of the three world-class projects: The Emporium, The EmQuartier and The EmSphere. We only took a glimpse of the EMQuartier project, but you can spend hours and hours exploring the three projects if you want.

After this luxury mall we had a short visit to the MBK mall to find a power bank, gadget girls as we are. On our way to the electronic gadgets we saw a nice wigg that Margré tried on. The staff of the shop was waiting patiently until they demanded after a short while that they needed the wigg for their mannequin doll. 

Never a dull moment with DDTS ;-)!
