    Bangkok Sukhumvit

    December 30, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    ......das Zentrum von Bangkok.....hier liegt auch unser Hotel....
    ....und was bezahlt ist, muss auch abgewohnt werden, hat sich Marc heute gesagt und das Bett gehütet....Spaß beiseite....
    Regen und Wind stören wohl doch beim Tauchen... Marc liegt flach mit Erkältung, Fieber und Ischias.
    Jetzt muss unsere Hausapotheke ran...und noch ein paar Mittelchen aus Thailand....
    Damit Marc in Ruhe schlafen kann, bin ich ein bisschen durch Sukhumvit gewandert....aber Bangkok allein macht nicht so viel Spaß....
    Mal sehen, was morgen wird....

    Bangkok

    January 3, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 75 °F

    Staying at the Doubletree Hilton with Megan and Glenna in an adjoining room. Glenna is very dehydrated AND sunburnt AND has many mosquito bites so she is sleeping and drinking water with rehydration salts. Meg and the parents headed over to Siam Mall for people watching and coffee. Very upscale and fashionable with all of the Christmas decorations still up.

    There’s a good expatriate restaurant/bar across the street with live music (80s cover music), very inviting, so takeout for dinner. Great food!!!

    Doubletree is perfect to chill out

    January 3, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 77 °F

    We split into 2 pairs today with Dale and Meg heading for the the Grand Palace and reclining Buddha and Glenna and I going low key at the hotel as she recuperates from her various maladies.

    The pool area was wonderful with cabanas to lay in and recliners in the pool. Heaven....

    But also interesting is all the construction underway across Bangkok. Sukhumvit is booming with new luxury condos, nightlife, restaurants. More about a favorite in an upcoming posting.Read more

    Grand Palace, Bangkok

    January 5, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 91 °F

    While our friends and family back I the US weather a massive snowstorm we visited the Grand Palace. Go early was the advice and it was good advice. But like so many wonders it surpassed my expectations so much that I’m adding an extra footprint so I can post more pictures.

    First the buildings which were beautiful and intricate with their carvings.Read more

    Traveling tips in Bangkok

    January 4, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 75 °F

    Cast: 4 people, including 2 pretty blond millennials, 1 62 year old with an artificial knee, 1 65 year old father benevolently discussing Marvel movies, hunting for good coffee in the morning
    Tips:

    1. It’s true about taxis and running off meter. From Grand Palace to hotel, taxi wanted to charge us 600 baht for a ride that was 120 baht on meter. Glenna profoundly expressed her displeasure as only a true Bostonian could, stopping the cab and getting out. She did not help this taxi drivers impressions of Americans as nice people but I was going “you go girl”

    2. Walking is great for 3 of us but the high curbs on sidewalk are a pain for bad knees.

    3. The stairs up to the BTS are formidable. Megan sprints up them.

    4. At the Grand Palace, watch for fake Thai police who are way too helpful. Kudos to Megan for spotting this.

    5. Rooftop bars on the 23rd floor are amazing. Check out Sky on 20 at the Novotel. More on this later.

    6. There’s a street we rode down that is all shops for intricate wooden doors. They are all out on the street and gorgeous. Hard to fit in luggage for souvenirs though.
