Thailand pt1: Busy Bangkok
For Christmas and New Year we traveled to Thailand! I didn’t realize how diverse Thailand actually is, you can find old temples, a cyberpunk city, jungles full of monkeys and snakes, and beautiful white sanded beaches. We went to all of that! I’ve divided the posts up in to four parts: [Busy Bangkok], [Ancient Temples], [Jungles of Khao Yai] and [Kwai and Ko Samet].
Let’s start with the big, cyberpunk city of Bangkok. This city is in itself so diverse, with different neighborhoods having their completely own personality. First we stayed some nights near the riverside, where the city is full of small streetmarkets!
We spent new year’s eve in the modern and very cyberpunk Sukhumvit.
We also roamed around Chinatown with its endless markets and alleyways. What an experience! There are so many colors, smells and tastes when you roam around Bangkok. All your senses are being bombarded non-stop!
Bangkok has so many markets, some on the rivers, but also some right on the traintracks! We visited one of those markets.
With so much food around, ofcourse we ate a lot ;p We went to a Michelin recommended streetfood stall and had the best noodle soup ever!
Besides markets, we visited the golden temple, which is located on a hill and has a beautiful view over the city.
So much for beautiful Bangkok, we visited many different locations in Thailand and next up are the ancient temples of Ayutthaya!
