Christmas at the Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn

Always Delivers Expectations I’ve been to the Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn on various occasions and they always deliver on expectations. In fact, they go above and beyond to try and keep their guests happy. And most of all it’s great value for money when compared with other hotels in Bangkok. Their Christmas Eve meal (December,…

Awakening Bangkok – Lights Festival

A Spectacular Festival of Lights. From November 15th-24th, 2019, locals and visitors were entertained by an illuminating festival in the City of Angels. Some iconic venues were lit up, for example the Central Grand Post Office to old warehouses. It kind of felt like being on a scavenger hunt with a map to guide us…

Babette’s The Steakhouse, Hotel Muse

From the moment I stepped into the hotel lobby it felt as though I wasn’t in Bangkok. With a gracious welcome from reception and the dark, yet classy decor of the hotel, I instantly felt the concept that they were going for. Babette’s Bangkok is on the 19th floor and also follows the same theme…

Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort

First Impressions From the moment you arrive at this unique, riverfront resort you feel like you have been transported back in time. You are greeted warmly by a porter dressed in traditional clothes and the most welcoming smile. With all the excitement of the first interaction, one could get distracted and leave something behind in…

Mercure Koh Chang Hideaway

A beach resort on the tropical island of Koh Chang. The resort has its own private beach, a large kiddie pool and much more! Getting from Bangkok to Koh Chang takes the most part of a day, but as they say: the roads less traveled leads to a great adventure. The resort is on the…

Getting from Bangkok to Koh Chang

I love Koh Chang island, BUT I dread the journey there. Some 300+ km from Bangkok is not an easy trek on the road. There’s an airport in Trat Province, however, the flights are extortionate and quite frankly not that much of a time saver when you consider check-in and the other things that go…

Mumsa Beach Resort & Restaurant

A pristine beach, hammocks to laze in, and a beach bar to quench your thirst from the Thai sun – what’s not to love about that! Mumsa Beach Resort & Spa is a just the right place if you’re looking for a secluded break, or even just to stay there for a night whilst passing…

The Tree House Cafe (Baan Ton Mai)

Baan-Ton-Mai (The Tree House Cafe) offers a unique outdoor eating experience. With tree houses dotted around amidst lush gardens and jungle, you can’ t help but feel relaxed. Or enjoy sitting over a stream with your feet dangling as you listen to the sound of water pass you by. As you walk through the elevated…

Khao Mo in Wat Prayoon

Khao Mo in Wat Prayoon has to be the most peaceful and tranquil place that I’ve been to in Bangkok. After driving past the very intriguing temple on numerous times while crossing Saphan Phut (Memorial Bridge), I have finally made the effort to stop and satisfy my curiosity. I think it’s safe to say that…

Chinese New Year Celebration vs. Bangkok’s Air Pollution

Every year thousands of people head to Bangkok’s Chinatown to celebrate the Chinese New Year. This year is no different in spite of the air pollution that has gripped the city in recent weeks, so much so that schools were ordered to close for two days. However, it’s business as usual and everything seems be…

Bang Nam Pheung Floating Market

When you visit Thailand, on the top of the must-do activities is to go to one of the floating markets. It’s like nothing you’ve seen before and truly an unforgettable experience. The only downside is that it’s a 3-4 hour drive from Bangkok just to get to the famous Damnoen Saduak or Amphawa floating markets….
