Last day in Bangkok, Curry Crab, Don Muang

We also had duck web noodle at a chinese restaurant before taking BTS to Mo Chit Station. From Mo Chit, we took bus 29 to Don Muang Airport.

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.

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.

Chiang Mai For The First Time

I’ve known about Chiang Mai from a tv series that I watched when I was in high school. So I decided I have to visit this city this time. The passenger next to me told me that the bus will stop at 2 places: Arcade bus station and bus office. It reached Arcade at 6am. I saw a taxi counter at the terminal, so I decided to drop at terminal and took taxi because I don’t have Chiangmai maps and I don’t know how public transport works in Chiang Mai. The taxi… Read More

Shopping in Chatuchak and Going to Chiang Mai

What’s the best thing to do in Bangkok on weekend? Shopping. Chatuchak market is only open on weekend and it’s very popular for tourist. I decided to pay a visit. I checked out around 11am, stored my luggage with the bellboy and took MRT to Chatuchak. Chatuchak park was very beautiful on a sunny day. I wanted to make it my phone’s background picture. I had lunch at the exit gate of the park. One thing I learn from the lunch: Thai fried rice is awful, and Thai friend chicken is incredible…. Read More
