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…

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…

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….

Saphan Phut (Memorial Bridge)

If you visit the famous Grand Palace or the Reclining Buddha in Bangkok, then chances are that you might see the Memorial Bridge. It’s the second bridge built in Bangkok to cross the mighty Chao Phraya River, connecting Phra Nakhon and Thonburi districts of the city. It was built in 1932 to commemorate 150 years…

Christmas Lunch at the JW Marriott Hotel in Bangkok

So for Christmas of 2018 I decided to give my my usual hotel a skip and try out the JW Café for Christmas Day Lunch. Walking into the lobby I was greeted by a gigantic Christmas tree. That sure set the tone for the season. As I waited to be seated, Santa was welcoming the…

Christmas in Thailand

You may be surprised to know that Christmas is quite a big deal in Thailand, considering that around 94% of the population is Buddhist. If you find yourself in Bangkok around the festive season, you will be able to see enormous displays inside or outside of shopping malls and hotels. Buildings are often lit up…

GREYHOUND CAFÉ

This eatery is an option if you want a variety of food to choose from, with reasonable prices. The drinks menu is expansive and they have some interesting signature refreshments. I had the Greyhound Iced Lemon Tea, served with ice cubes made of tea. As for the food – you can expect soups to salads,…

Chinatown, Bangkok

This has to be one of my favorite places in Bangkok. There are plenty of opportunities to people watch or simply enjoy the hustle & bustle of tuk tuks and buses. However, it may not be for those who aren’t used to the heat and humidity. During the daytime there are many wholesale shops if…
