You’ll love Bangkok!
Bangkok is one of the most enchanting and always exciting cities in the world!
I can still remember when I first arrived in Bangkok – I didn’t even want to blink my eyes for fear I might miss something interesting.
It was the never ending sprawl of Bangkok street food that really got me hooked.
Food literally goes on forever in Bangkok.
While walking down the sidewalk you’ll be blasted with irresistible aromas that will force you to eat delicious food (and that’s a wonderful thing).
I’ve been based in Bangkok since early 2009, exploring and discovering all sorts of amazing things Bangkok has to offer.
Over the years I’ve published quite a few travel, food, and tips articles about Bangkok, so I thought I’d nearly organize them on this page so they are all in one easy-to-find place.
So scroll down and click on the articles that attract you.
