BANGKOK : 4D3N – DAY 3 : Jim Thompson whaaaaat?

We started off our day trying to find Mak Yah’s Restaurant. The food was extremely delicious and the portion size was generous during my last visit. Online review for this restaurant was also great. A friend who recently visited Bangkok a month or two before us actually stopped by and sent us pictures! It was devastating when we found out that Mak Yah’s Restaurant is no longer in operation and we were lucky enough to find another muslim restaurant right beside where Mak Yah used to be located.

After lunch, we girls embarked on a mission to find silk fabric from Jim Thompson and if i remembered correctly, we went to three different Jim Thompson that day. After purchasing from one of the outlets, the worker actually informed us that they indeed have a factory outlet which sells thai silk at much lower price. T.T

Our last stop for day 3 was Purr Cat Cafe Club. It was quite a distance from the train station so I’d suggest getting a tuk tuk there instead. The place was pretty isolated and it was difficult getting a cab/tuk tuk out of the area.

As for the place itself, it was worth a trip. A friend I was with actually mentioned that compared to those cat cafes in SG, the cats here are more active and there’s much lesser restrictions when interacting with the cats. The people there are also very friendly and you don’t have to pay an entry fee to get in.  Give this place a visit if you have a slot in your schedule. 🙂
