Our Bangkok getaway, a journalog

Finally! We managed to pull together the pictures and story of our recent culinary and history filled journey to Bangkok over the lunar new year holidays. Oh how time flies! That was more than a month ago!

You know the thing about not cherishing what’s around you?

Well, perhaps Bangkok was one such place that we have “neglected” all this time. Because we have been focused on the journeys that take us afar – that is across the other sides of the planet. And so this city of Angels was not on the radar. It was only there because of the price!

Now there will be many many posts about Bangkok. From how to find the cheapest and best hostel stays to the experience of boozing all around the city, one might experience information overload. Ours will focus on the slightly ‘glitzier’ side of Bangkok, that is the malls, the shopping and the restaurants. Nope. Not quite nomadic and that’s not the intention!

What do we think you missed in Bangkok? Take a quick look at the journalogs we’ve prepared. Our story begins with part I – here.

  1. I was only in Bangkok at the airport in 2014.. the more I think about it the more I want to visit small cities… and if I go to a big city I don’t want to be there very long.. I will go and read the rest of this post…..:-))

    1. Its true. Mega cities can be confusing and crowded. That’s why when we were living in Europe we did not really explore cities but went on drives and explorations in small towns, villages etc. But in Asia, large cities do have their draw too. Perhaps due to the exotic mix of culture. What do you think?

      1. We got to visit big cities they have so much to offer. We just need to plan well in term of time spent there. Of course if we have easy transportation, everything is easier to explore around a bigger city. I am from a very small town and I recall enjoying the peace of the nature. Where did you live in Europe ?

        1. We lived in Amsterdam for 3 years, in the southern quiet district about 10 minutes’ tram ride to the centre of town. Amsterdam is a city but not in the sense of a mega one. It is still small enough to walk on foot. It does have a suburban “sprawl” but that really is undefined. At least to us!
