Bangkok is a big and bustling metropolis and, for a first time traveller, it can actually get a bit overwhelming to take in all that the city has to offer.
Sharninder: This is the second part of the writeup written by my wife on our Bangkok trip. The first part is here. Look around for more Bangkok articles here. SHOPPING Now let me come to the first reason of my love for BKK. The shoes. They do have the best variety, the styles, the colours […]
Well! There is a reason why they call Thailand the land of smiles. It is difficult for anyone (esp. women) to not smile when one can shop till they drop and still have things they haven’t explored yet & money they haven’t spent yet.
But to my surprise, shopping is NOT the only thing worth mentioning about BKK (although I’ll keep mentioning it again & again :)). It has lots of other goodies – Authentic tourist hot spots (The Grand Palace, Wat Pho), Thai Foot massage, Food & Drink (street food & beer gardens), Creative window display at Malls, colourful cabs, awesome tuk-tuks, the life saver BTS, weirdest of weird hairstyles & of course the buzz of ‘Swadee-kha’.

Every tourist that comes to Bangkok has the historical monuments on his/her TODO list and getting stuck in traffic used to be an unavoidable part of the journey. The BTS (complimented […]

The hotel is a short 5 minute walk away from the Sanam Pao BTS station and a very convenient place to stay, if you’re not interested in being close to the touristy areas of Sukhumvit, Silom or Siam center, this is an […]
Suvarnbhumi international Airport opened late in 2006 and has been catering to the huge air traffic that Bangkok gets each year. Suvarnbhumi is by all standards one of the biggest airports in the world and coming from an Indian airport it was actually intimidating as I stepped out of the Aircraft into the huge terminal. […]
I’m back from my short trip to Bangkok, Thailand. We stayed at the Abloom serviced apartments and had a wonderful stay. I’ll be posting some tidbits from my trip over the next couple of days. Hang on.
