My trip to Bangkok City was unplanned, but it becomes the memorable vacation ever! I went to Bangkok by train. I took a bus from Kuala Lumpur to Butterworth, and from Butterworth, i took a train straight to Hua Lamphong Train Station in Bangkok city. It tooks 24 hours for me to reached out the places as i leave Butterworth station at 2.45 p.m on Thursday and arrived at 2.45 on Friday evening.
Beautiful view from along the journey.
As i've heard before, "Jauh perjalanan, Luas Pemandangan"
Seriously,it's true. And i enjoyed the scenery,every minutes and second. :)
Sadly,i've faced some difficulties in searching Halal food in Bangkok. I have to ask local people but it end up effortlessly because most of them can't speak English and can't understand me. Thankfully, i met some people from Malaysia and they gave me instructions that lead me to mouthful of Halal Food! Thank God! ;)
So, as i have experienced the difficulties in finding such places,i intent to create my own maps that will help me to find all those places for my next trip.
Ok,let me tell you a bit about map. Map is a visual representation of an area. It represents space, image,symbol and places in a small scales.
General-purpose maps provide many types of information on one map. Most atlas maps, wall maps, and road maps fall into this category.
The following are some features that might be shown on a general-purpose maps: bodies of water, roads, railway lines, parks, elevations, towns and cities, political boundaries, latitude and longitude, national and provincial parks.
These maps give a broad understanding of location and features of an area. You can gain an understanding of the type of landscape, the location of urban places, and the location of major transportation routes all at once.
MY IDEA – ‘SPECIFIC MAP’
-TO GIVE BASIC INFORMATION TO THE TOURIST ABOUT THE CITY
-GIVE A SMALL SCALE VISUAL IMAGENERY ABOUT THE BIG CITY
-GET A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT
- THE PLACES
- PUBLIC TRANSPORT
- INTERESTING LANDMARK
* I MADE 3 MAPS AND CATEGORIZING THEM BY TOURIST'S INTEREST.
1)SHOPPING AND LEISURE MAP
2)FOOD & BEVERAGES MAP
3)EDUCATION AND HISTORICAL MAP
I hope by creating this kind of map,it will be easier for me to search interesting places in Bangkok in my next trip. Sayonara! :) Till we meet again, Glorious City of Bangkok :)
