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…

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…
