Petchaburi Soi 5 is one of the best Bangkok street food streets. Just like any other food street, they start the business from 6pm till midnight. So today we are here for supper. Searching around we end up at P’Aor. We think this restaurant must popular based on the VIP visit photo on the wall and the trophy they display in the restaurant.
In Chocolate Ville you also can experience Dining in the park. Luckily this area is quite windy the time they start operate around 4pm. There are more than a hundred outdoor tables and an indoor dining area available but it still easily full house. So better make a reservation if you come in a bigger group.
Chocolate Ville is a MUST GO inside my friend list. I got no idea what place it is. At first I thought it is a theme park with a lot of chocolate deco and I can buy chocolate here. but later only I find out actually it is a fusion restaurant in Bangkok and it nothing to do with chocolate. So why name it Chocolate Ville??. Located at the northeast part of Bangkok and about 40 minutes drive from the city center, it is quite tricky to reach this place.
After the sinful Boat Noodles, its look like going to rain. We decided to visit the Shopping Mall in Siam area while wait for the rain stop and heading to Chocolate Ville. My friend decided to explore the road side street while I decided take a rest in Siam Center. So we have around one hour free leisure time for both of us.

Our next mission is Boat Noodle nearby Victory Monuments. From Thonglor we took BTS to Victory Monument stop that cost THB42. From the BTS station we need to walk to Victory Monument direction. I think I search for the wrong place. The direction instruction I get is not leading to the canal that had a lot of Boat Noodles but somehow we end up go deep inside a local village.
We already amaze by all the good review about Sukhumvit Soi 38 in Thonglor, so we plan to have our late dinner there. We also decide to stay in this area so we can easily explore the food street. Somehow it is not as expected. The street is very short and only a few stall or restaurant available. I thought it will atleast as interesting as our pasar malam (night market).
Since we spend too much time in Wang Lang, we miss the river ferry back to Ta Phra Chan Pier. At first we plan to direct take cab to Train Market but the tuk tuk's driver said it is too far and ask us just catch a cab but we worry its maybe very jam so end up we ride the tuk tuk to the nearest WongWian Yai BTS station that cost us THB100. Then we took BTS to On Nut BTS Station which is the nearest station to Train Market and catch a cab to Train Market. Anywhere better told the driver you want go to Seacon Square as they more familiar with it. The ride with metering cab is less than THB100.
