Thailand Part 2: Chinatown Eats & Adventures in Public Transportation

We woke up bright and early the next morning and headed to Chinatown. We had planned to begin at the Flower Market but ended up being dropped off at the plain old Market (Eh…A for Effort and L for Language Barrier). 1,044 more words

Flowers at the Jim Thompson House in Bangkok ~ a photo blog.

The Jim Thompson house is a collection of teak buildings telling the history of this American gent. Well looked after site. The grounds are peaceful and colourful and a great break from the frenetic city of Bangkok. 69 more words

Rob and I arrived in Bangkok at 2 am. This time I convinced him that we should get a hotel and cab there. A cab was under $10 and was especially fast because traffic was sparse. 1,070 more words

Bangkok and Cha Am, November 2015

Bangkok is getting more familiar.
