TAXI: My Least Favourite Method of Transportation

•••
Ah, the humble taxi. King of the road; saviour of heeled-feet and eternal cause of digress and unease… Nothing grinds my gears more than taxis. They are by far the worst form of transport and often an ongoing source of distress when visiting foreign lands. And the worst of them - airport taxis! No doubt on many an early morning you have stepped she[...]

This Travel-Themed Mall Takes Visitors on a Real Journey

•••
Asia's vast shopping malls have become somewhat iconic in the modern-day. From the dinky hidden plazas of Hong Kong to the sprawling luxury malls of Singapore. Maybe shopping isn't a top priority for you on a trip - but there are certain cities where I think you'd be missing out on a real slice of culture by not indulging. Bangkok has to be one of them.

Thai 7/11: a tale of bittersweet love

•••
"Bing-bong" the ubiquitous announcement of arrival that rings aloud with an unapologetic shrill tone. Shortly followed by a crisp, calm blast of faux-alpine air, peppered with the lingering scent of 1000 cheese and ham toasties. Sweet salvation. And a welcome respite from the midday heat. An oasis of tranquillity can be found amongst these dinky packe[...]

I'm pretty sure that every blogpost I ever wrote about Thailand and Bangkok in particular was essentially just one big love fest. It's true that the most popular of destinations in Asia is simply always guaranteed to provide a good time, pretty much regardless of weather, company or budget. It's a bit like a Disneyland for adults with fun people, amazing foo[...]

Rooftops, markets & boats: My first time in Bangkok, Thailand

•••
Oh, Thailand. When this year started, I had no idea I would be able to meet you for the first time. A spontaneous invitation to stay in one of Bangkok's most glam hotels had it that I packed my bag for five days in Bangkok this spring. Once there, I was constantly trying to deal with an absolute overflow of endorphines and whatever falling in love instantly [...]

Hotels we love: the Banyan Tree in Bangkok

•••
I love Bangkok. It's easily one of my favorite cities of all time and the type of place I love coming back to again and again. Bangkok was the first stop on my one year trip around the world back in 2005. Like any 23 year old backpacker I headed straight for Khao San Road, home of the budget traveler, haven for banana pancakes and $5 hotel rooms. The very fi[...]

The Asadang Hotel - Sleeping like a princess in Bangkok

•••
When most people think about accommodation in Bangkok, they think about a backpackers on Khaosan Road. After all it was The Beach that put them on the map for most and which girl wouldn't put up with thin walls and crummy sheets if it increases the chance of finding her personal Richard. However sometimes a girl just wants to feel like a princess, with or wi[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Surviving Khao San Road

•••
After returning from my recent trip to Thailand, people asked what my highlight was. It was definitely different from my first trip to the country of smiles and Pad Thai noodles, all three years ago (wow, time flies!). My new answer was Bangkok. The capital city it was this time! I know we've been going on about our love for Bangkok before, but Thailand gets[...]

Volunteering abroad

•••
A wonderful way of spending time in a 3rd-world country is by doing volunteer work. Countries like Bolivia, India, Cambodia, Ghana or Mexico require a lot of developmental help and you have what it takes to give them that help. Because you are smart, caring and a wonderful role model for all those who will profit from your support. During my world trip in[...]
