Bangkok Poste


Au contraire de Thomas, j’ai vraiment emmené beaucoup trop de choses avec moi. Avoir un sac à dos de 50L ne signifie pas forcément avoir à le remplir au maximum. C’est une des leçons que je tire de ce premier mois de voyage : je pourrais voyager plus léger.

Notre guesthouse, 32 Bangrak House, est idéalement située à 10 minutes de marche de la grande poste de Klong Chan Road. Venant de la station BTS Saphan Taksin, ce grand building blanc/gris est situé sur le même coté de la route que McDonalds et le centre commercial Robinson. Il est ouvert tous les jours jusque 17h30.

Klong Post Office

Un service normal de poste y est proposé, de même qu’un service de colis très efficace où un préposé s’occupe de l’empaquetage des marchandises. Plusieurs tailles sont proposées, à des prix très raisonnables, entre 9 et 80Bht (soit 25 cents et 2euros)

Apres avoir pris un ticket et fait la file pendant quelques minutes, nous sommes reçus par un employé parlant parfaitement anglais. Mon colis pesait 1.6kilos (de vêtements). J’ai choisi le plus économique, c’est à dire l’envoi par bateau, le prix s’affiche à 500bahts (soit 12,5eur). Cela prendra entre 2 et 3 mois. Par avion, cela reviendrait à 1100bahts.

En gros, un service efficace, bon marché et sympathique, que ce soit pour alléger vos bagages ou envoyer des souvenirs chez soi.

  2. Hi ann marie, me and my friend leave for India in about 6 months time the vague plan is from there Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, Bali, Oz, NZ and then to South America. Just going to kinda see which way the wind takes us for 9 months. Being a woman what are the essentials?what size bag do u recommend, do you wish would have got one on wheels? Thanks ash x (websites amazing)

  3. Hi Ash, thanks for your comments, and best wishes planning your trip! I have a 55 litre “Deuter” pack, the “sl” version is especially for women and is quite comfortable. Try different packs in store for size, 50-60 lt is big enough, I also have a small 15lt pack that I use for valuables and as carry on when flying.
    I never considered wheels, we have spent a lot of time in small islands, only accessible by boat, and where there are no roads, just sandy paths so wheels would be redundant.
    My friends removed quite an amount from my pack the night before I left, and I still had far too much stuff. Like us you will be in warm and cold countries so need to pack accordingly. You tend to wear the same things over and over, and laundry is cheap. No more than 2 pairs of shorts, you can buy light cotton harem pants which are great in more conservative countries, and for traveling at night when it’s cold. I bought 2 pairs while traveling, less than €5 each. I also have a very pretty long skirt that can be worn as a dress, bought in Chiang Mai for €6.
    Don’t bother with a white bra as it will never get really clean. I have found the cheaper bikinis available in SE Asia don’t fit more voluptuous western ladies, and bought new ones at the Roxy store which were expensive by local standards, best to bring a few with you.
    It’s quite difficult to find tampons here, and when you do they are expensive so try bring enough for when you are travelling through less developed countries.
    My sister gave me a “tangle teaser” which is amazing when getting knots from seasalt out of your hair.
    In KL and Thailand you can find pretty much anything that you need and as cheap if not cheaper than home so don’t stress, you can restock easily.
    Hope this helps A x
