Okay so because we arrived in Bangkok at night, I never got round to showing you our hotel so I’ll just start off with that now. 😁 We stayed at the LiT BANGKOK Hotel for the first couple of night in the city and it was brilliant! I thought I took photos by the pool … Continue Reading

A few hours before midnight, we got picked up from our hotel in Bangkok for a chance to experience the city in a way we wouldn’t have otherwise. Our day had started with one of the most popular spots in the city (the Grand Palace, Khlongs and Wat Arun – see it all here) but … Continue Reading

Bangkok was one city I’d wanted to visit for a long time. Ever since we went to Phuket and Phi Phi Island, Thailand very swiftly rose in the rankings of some of my favourite places to holiday in and thanks to that, the capital city has beckoned for quite some time now. Visiting Bangkok, we … Continue Reading

Thailand is a place that always surprises me. I remember the first time I visited – we were heading to Phuket and then to Phi Phi Islands – and I just had such a totally different expectation of Thailand. Movie and TV shows I’d seen had depicted it as a hectic, manic and uber-humid place … Continue Reading

Thailand is one of my favourite countries I’ve had the fortune of travelling to. It really surprised me how much I loved it as my expectations were so different from the reality of being there.

After an amazing time exploring the islands in Phang Nga Bay (see posts here and here), it was fair to say that by the time we got back to the mainland, we were knackered! It was quite surprising because we didn’t actually feel tired until we got to the hotel and even though we planned … Continue Reading

Swiftly following the morning’s sailing/kayaking and lunch-time gluttony (if you missed that – check out part 1 of this post – which has been split to two parts due to having lots of photos), my friends and I (who must have put on quite a few pounds from lunch alone) headed off to the next … Continue Reading
