Then off we went higher up to the 86th floor of the hotel! Papa appreciated it so much because he’s always fond of land area, acres of land, and so on and so forth. Bangkok’s skyline is just like Makati’s here in the Philippines and not too impressive unlike Singapore‘s and Hong Kong‘s.After our sight-seeing, we binged into eating Thailand’s tropical fruits in the Fruit Buffet of the hotel. Though the Philippines is also in the tropics, there are still other varieties of tropical fruits that don’t grow here in our country and are abundant in Thailand.
Aside from fresh fruits, there are also frozen fruits, steamed fruits, preserved fruits, and candied fruits. This tour was indeed a sugar-loaded one!
What I loved most in their wide array of selection are the guava mini cakes. They’re so fluffy, not too sweet, melts in your mouth, and oh so heavenly! I also enjoyed a great helping of durian because this exotic fruit is so expensive here in the Philippines. Auntie Lourding also had ample servings of her favorite dragon fruit ‘coz it’s also expensive here, more than the durian is. Mama munched on plenty of cashew nuts and disliked the grapes that were sour. Papa was amazed by the lemongrass juice and my sister Laling had developed a liking for pomegranate juice which was not too good for me. And our common denominator were the dried mangoes because the slices were really big and they’re not too sweet. It is evident that the mangoes were manufactured naturally, having its own sweetness and not just through artificial sweeteners. With this, a visit to Baiyoke’s Fruit Buffet is highly recommended!
At 350 Baht (P654.50) per pax, our Baiyoke Sky Hotel visit was so worth it because it is also listed as the fifth world’s tallest hotel! I’m not yet done with my Thailand posts. Watch out for more here on The Other Side of Mae! #tosomtravels #tosomeats
