Shopaholic: Thailand 

As you might know I just went to Thailand for a month and of course I bought loads of new treasures, that I want to show you, but first of all – let me tell you some of the best places to shop at in Bangkok. 

On our second day we went into the Siam Paragon, one of the many malls surrounding Siam, including the Siam Paragon, the Siam Centre, the Siam Discovery and the Siam Square. You can find some affordable shops like Pull&Bear, H&M, Brandy Melville, etc.  there but you can also find lots of designer stores there. If you’re looking for a bargain,  I wouldn’t recommend shopping there – go to the MBK or the platinum mall instead. They have a large selection of cheap clothing, including fakes of all kinds. 

If you’re more into markets I would recommend going to the Chatuchak Weekend market or the Chatuchak Green market. You can find some amazing small designers there, lots of accessories and souvenirs. 

Hope I could help you and now let’s get on with the haul. 

I got these sunglasses at a little shop at Chatuchak weekend market. 

I got these on Koh Tao at a little sunglass shop. I could care less that they’re fake, I just really like the way they look. 

The gun as well as the two chokers are from Chatuchak weekend market and the bracelet is from Koh Tao. 

I got both of these shirts at the MBK mall in Bangkok.

I found this shirt at the platinum mall in Bangkok, they have lots of shirts like this there. 

These were my finds on Koh Tao. They have tons of little shops there, which sell amazing clothes. Most of them are one size though.

This clutch is from BKK authentic and I got it at Chatuchak weekend market. 

Last, but not least I got this purse at the platinum mall. They have a lot of Gucci inspired bags there. 

Unfortunately I can’t tell you the name of all the shops, because most of them don’t have names, but I hope you liked it anyway.

Koh Phangan 

Right after our little adventure in Bangkok my boyfriend and I headed to Koh Samui and then took a ferry to Koh Phangan. We had booked a bungalow with beach view at the Cookie Salad resort, right by the Haad Salad beach. After getting up at three in the morning and traveling for hours we arrived at the resort at about noon.  

I can highly recommend the Cookie Salad resort, as well as Haad salad beach. It’s a rather calm and relaxed atmosphere and you can’t really party here, but there are lots of restaurants, some bars and some cool daytime activities like scuba diving, kayaking and boat tours around the island. 

On our second day we went scuba diving and even though the water at Haad salad beach is very shallow at some points you can still see lots of fish. It’s definitely worth it. My boyfriend and I also rented a kayak and paddled from the start of the beach to the end. It was very relaxing, but if you’re deciding to go on a boat or kayak trip in the noon, don’t forget to protect your head from the sun and use sunscreen. Lastly we rented a surfboard and did some stand up paddling in the evening. Well, my boyfriend stood up and I sat at the front of the surfbroad and did nothing. I’m not really good at balancing, so I think it was best that he did all the work. We watched the sun set and I can highly recommend renting a surfboard and just chilling on the sea, when the sun goes down – it’s simply breathtaking. 

So if you’re planning your next trip to an island, definitely consider Koh Phangan and the Cookie Salad resort
