Hello from the capital of Thailand! It was funny when I heard from somebody actually reciting Bangkok’s full and proper name which is Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit!!!

There are possibly many Bangkoks but I have seen mainly two of them. The cultural part of the city lies on the south of the chaotic and up and bustling suburbs of Kao Sahn. The best temples and the palace can be found there. It’s a place more relaxed than the central Bangkok. The latter is a full of trafic and noisy place to be. That is where all the businesses and offices are – thus the rush. I had to see the center because I spent some days in the house of Mathieu, a French VJ that has been there for two years now. All in all it is a place I would go back to and why not a place to work at.

One thing you do understand when you visit the capital is that Thailand has been in the tourism game enough time now – probably the first country in whole Asia to have suspected the boom in the sector. While travelling and seeing more of the country I hope to find an authentic place or places (I know many would tell me; good luck) and meet the real people of Thailand. I will keep you informed on how that goes. For now goodbye!

  1. Good luck on your travels. You must take in Kanchanaburi, only 2 hours from BKK but an altogether different planet!

  3. Hey, i will be visiting Bangkok this July. Found a great offer here ( ), which brings down my accommodation expenses to a measly US$25 per night only. Any other special recommendations for sightseeing while I am there?

  4. Hi Linda!!!!!! What a lovely coincidence! Even i got my hotel in Bangkok booked through which is indeed a lucrative offer! Luckily, i booked it at the right time since the offer closes this 29th…. Well, i shall be visiting Bangkok in August, or else we may have bumped into each other…. Hope you have a gala time there!
