I’ve always been quite reluctant to visit Thailand, but I must admit it was more fun than I initially anticipated.
My pretty gurls and I like to #treatourselves and travel to a beach destination once a year, and after the success of Philippines last year, we decided another South East Asian country would be a good choice.
One-hour foot massage for four pounds, taxis with on-board wifi and high-end hotels delivering everything you need at your doorstep don’t even begin to explain everything you can get in Bangkok. This city is certainly made up to please all crowds.
I personally really enjoyed getting lost in the streets of Chinatown, trying all those street food stalls that may or may not play well with my stomach (such a rebel!). Not to mention the never ending street market, selling all sorts of crap that I also love. Totoro and Hello Kitty’s (and rubber duckies!) all over the place. What else could I ask for?
Some prefer to ride til you die at the infamous Khao San Road, which everybody should check out at least once, but I think a good balance between culture and pleasure is best.
If you are only in the kingdom of Thailand for few days, I suggest you check out the following:
- For those wanting shopping: Chatuchak Weekend Market
- For those wanting a good massage: Chinatown
- For those wanting temple crawling: the Wat Phra and Wat Arun were our favourite
- For foodies: 80/20, Mr joe crispy pork, Err, and Jai Fai are defo a must
- If finding yourself with extra time check out one of the many floating markets and/ or go for another massage! You deserve it.

An Oasis in a hustling city
As for where to stay, the options are endless. You can splash the cash into a 5-star hotel or go budget at a hostel. We did both and I have to admit the later was quite impressive and exponentially cheap. In some instances, like when you are by the sea, it may make more sense to go a bit out of your way to stay at a stunning resort, but if you are gonna be out and about in the city, there’s really no need to go for it. You’ll be in good hands either way.
