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

The Day The World Predicted to End – Bangkok Chinatown and Sukhumvit

The world was predicted to end on this day. If it did, I would be proud to blow my last breath on the land of Buddha. But thankfully, it didn’t! I started my day late. After showering, I did my research on where I should have my lunch and what I should do on that day. About 11am, I took MRT from Petchaburi to Sukhumvit. Based on recommendation by Lonely Planet travel book that I brought with me, I decided to look for Bharani restaurant at Sukhumvit soi 23 for authentic Thai… Read More

First Time in Bangkok – From Don Muang Airport to City

Bangkok is only 2 hour flights away from Singapore but I’ve never been to the city until now. I didn’t plan to visit it either. Until my sisters told me that both of them, together with my uncle’s family, want to go there on a tour at the end of year 2012, I thought “Why not? It’s not like I have better plan for new year anyway” And since I wasn’t employed full time at that moment, I decided to go to Bangkok 1 week earlier than the scheduled tour. Fast forward,… Read More
