Zleep63 Hostel @ Bangkok, Thailand ğŸ‡¹ğŸ‡­

Are you a frequent shopping 🛒🛍 fan to Bangkok, Thailand 🇹🇭 ❓⁉️

If yes ✅, you are gonna be delighted 😃 with this blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝

Photo 24-06-2018, 3 37 31 PM.jpg

Why?❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna recommending a comfy & cheap hostel 🏡 nearby Bangkok Don Mueang airport ✈️🛫🛬It’s really nearby‼️

Special thanks to the details received upon hostel booking confirmation & prompt useful reply to her queries about walking direction from the airport by the hostel staffJust a 🔟mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ distance (approximately 700m) from the airport ✈️🛫🛬

Ohh…It’s also nearby the Bangkok train 🚂🛤 station, right opposite the airport ✈️🛫🛬 with a connecting bridge 🌉

Photo 23-06-2018, 5 06 50 PM.jpg

Actually this hostel 🏡 also will be extremely favourable 👍🏻 to backpackers / travellers ğŸŽ’ğŸ’¼with late airport/ train arrival 🌃🌌 Most of the time, cheaper fare for late night, midnight / early morning flights 🛫🛬Hmm…She has booked a bed 🛏 & stay for a night 🌃🌌 recently in a mixed dorm. She has a late arrival 🛬 to Bangkok 🇹🇭 & she needed to check-in for a connecting flight 🛫 the next day to Nakhon Phanom province from the same airport ✈️

Initially she had a thought of having an overnight 😴💤 at the airport ✈️🛫🛬 (not her 1️⃣st time as a travel lover ❤️). Then, she got this recommendation from 🌐 Booking.com, it’s within short walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ distance & cheap ☺️ So, why not❓⁉️✅Moreover, no ❌ credit card 💳 details required for booking & free 🆓 cancellation with an informed dateline 🗓🕛 upon your booking confirmation✅ Awesome‼️😀

Photo 23-06-2018, 5 08 54 PM.jpg

Safe to walk 🚶🏻‍♀️at night 🌃🌌 from airport ✈️🛩❓⁉️

Sure, it’s actually pretty near after the direct connecting bridge / skywalk 🌉 from the airport ✈️🛫🛬

Anyway, safe precaution still require wherever & whenever we are. She walked 🚶🏻‍♀️slight quickly & be extra careful too. She was lucky 🍀 that the streets still busy & with bright lighting💡, there were many local residents around too👫👭👬 So she is not 💯% alone ✌🏻👌🏻

From her research 🌐 & reading 📖, lots of stuff actually all of us, yes✅, you & herself ~ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 can do to contribute go green 💚 effort together gather by reducing ⬇️ the plastic usage respectively

Yes✅, she is believing in starting something small as each individual, then greater impact will achieve collectively then

Let’s refuse by saying NO ❌ to single use plastic & work together 👭👬👫 to try something small today by refusing straws & plastic bags‼️

So, some of the go green 💚 travel tips she wishes to suggest here to reduce ⬇️ single use plastic/ paper during trips or on the go,

1️⃣. Reuse/ Refuse: Bring along a reusable bag whenever on the go especially weekend shopping & say no ❌ to plastic bag packaging from your purchases. Suggest to opt for a foldable, then it can keep in clothes pocket/ bag on the go. This definitely reduce lots of single use plastic bags especially during shoppings

2️⃣. Reuse/ Refuse: Love 💗 coffee ☕️ / tea🍵/ juices 🥤/ smoothies🍹? Bring your own reusable cup. This definitely reduce ⬇️ lots of single use paper cups & plastic cover lids (hot ♨️ drinks) / plastic cups (cold🥤drinks)

3️⃣. Reuse/ Rethink: To avoid dehydration during on the go/ travels? Do bring a reusable bottle/ flask whenever travelling, this definitely reduce ⬇️ your chance to buy bottle mineral water, can beverage, packet beverage etc.

4️⃣. Refuse/ Rethink/ Respect: Suggesting to conference/ forum not to use cover plastic badges

5️⃣. Refuse/ Rethink/ Respect: Request for water 💦💧 to be served in glass bottle & cups from hotel 🏢/ hostel🏘/ guest house🏡 By requesting, you actually have sharing an alternative ways to them to reduce ⬇️ single use plastics. Or why not boil your own drinking water with the kettle provided in the hotel room?

7️⃣. Reuse/ Rethink: If possible, choose to dine in 🍽🍴any stalls, shops, restaurants etc. instead of packing 🥡your meals. This will sure reduce ⬇️ single use of plastic containers, plastic folks, plastic spoons etc.

 

8️⃣. Reuse/ Rethink: If really in the rush & require to pack 🥡 your meal, do bring along your reusable container, folk & spoon while packing your meals from stalls, shops, restaurants etc.

So, let’s start small as a go green 💚 & responsible individual cum traveller today to avoid landfill, reduce our eco-footprint & to protect our ocean 🌊 from anymore plastic pollution
