First Time in Patong

First time in Patong Phuket Thailand

We spent so many hours looking for the perfect place to stay at in Phuket. Well, our definition of perfect involves the adjectives cheap and nice. And I think we found a gem. To be honest, there are too many things I like about Phuket. First, its efficient transport and travel agent. Second, the huge varieties of food. And, the number of affordable hotels. There are literally hundreds of affordable hotels all around Phuket. Since it was our first visit to Phuket, I wanted to stay at a busy location with plenty of… Read More

3 Days Phuket Itinerary and Cost

3 Days Phuket Itinerary and Cost

“Let’s go to a place that we both haven’t been to before!” There’s something magical when you visit a completely new place that your travel partner and you have not been to before. That’s what drives us to decide that Phuket should be our next destination. Well, I have been to Krabi and have done island hopping to Phi Phi islands 7 years ago, but I haven’t been to Phuket! This trip is a good opportunity for me to explore Phuket and re-visit Phi Phi Islands. Thanks to a travel agent who… Read More

Last day in Bangkok, Curry Crab, Don Muang

For our last day in Bangkok, we enjoy a slow paced day. We had breakfast in the hotel, packed our bags, checked out almost noon, took BTS to Siam, had curry crab for lunch at Somboon Seafood at Siam Square One.

Bangkok Wat Arun, Mookata, Baiyoke Sky Hotel

We started our day quite late today. We had breakfast at hotel and a short swim in the swimming pool. We then took BTS to Saphan Taksin. The ferry is just outside BTS station. We bought the day pass of the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat for 150 baht. The waiting time was quite long, however the tour guide instruction and the map were very clear. Our first stop was Grand Palace. However, after realising that Grand Palace was so huge and the admission was quite expensive (400 baht), and it was already… Read More

Ayutthaya Temples, Bangkok, Chatuchak Weekend Market

We started our day with a bowl of boat noodle for breakfast along Naresuan Road. We rented bicycle for whole day from our hotel, and we were making our way to Wat Maha That when we spotted boat noodle stall. In Wat Maha That, we witnessed the famous Head of the Sandstone Buddha Image. From there, we continued to Wat Phra Ram and witnessed elephants on the way. After that, we went to Wat Phra Si Sanphet. It happens that 11th and 12th July are Thailand’s national public holiday, related to religious… Read More

Bangkok Central World, Pratunam Market, Meeting with Family

On the last day of my solo trip, I decided to stroll further to Central World. I was greeted by crowd of decorations for the new year celebration. From Central World, it’s pretty easy to walk to Pratunam Market.

Museum of Contemporary Art Bangkok and Jim Thompson House

The train arrived late in Bangkok, therefore I had breakfast on the train, and it feels good. Upon reaching Hualamphong station in Bangkok, I took public train to Siam, and then walked to Lub d Hostel. I was lucky because I walked in and there is available bed for me for the night. After checking in, I took shower in their clean and comfortable toilet. My friend recommended this hotel to me and I must say that the location is very good. I can easily walk to Museum of Contemporary Art Bangkok… Read More

Christmas and Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai

We started our Christmas day with magnificent view from the camp site. Clouds in front of our eyes and beautiful sunrise. It’s beyond magical.

Camping in Huai Nam Dang Chiang Mai

My original plan for Chiang Mai was straight up: temples and old town. However I was so blessed to have met my friend and to have them accompanied me in Chiang Mai because I get to visit places I never thought I would have visited otherwise.
