    Bangkok das Streetfood-Paradies

    January 1 in Thailand ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

    Kaum richtig gestartet geht es für uns Farangs (Touris / anders Farben wie wir von den Thais genannt werden) bereits weiter.

    Die Weihnachtstage verbrachten wir auf Koh Samet. Eine tolle Insel nur ca. 300km von Bangkok entfernt. Viel mehr als Baden und Schnorcheln haben wir dann aber doch nicht getan.
    Nun waren wir noch einige Tage in Bangkok.
    Viel zu gross um es in so kurzer Zeit zu besichtigen. Trotzdem sahen wir den grossen Palast, einige Tempel und diverse Nacht- sowie Schwimmende Märkte. Die Märkte sind ein Streetfood Paradies wie wir es noch nie gesehen haben! Egal was man will, man kann es haben.
    Weiteres Highlight, der ÖV in Bangkok. Um schnell, zuverlässig und preiswert voran zu kommen nutzen die Thais ihre Flüsse durch die ganze Stadt. Jedoch ist hier etwas Geschick gefragt, denn so wirklich angelegt wird hier nicht. Heisst das Boot ist beim ein- und aussteigen immer etwas in Bewegung.

    Morgen früh verlassen wir Thailand in Richtung Siem Reap, Kambodscha.
    Die Tage hier waren toll und wir sehen uns bestimmt bald wieder.

    Bangkok

    March 13 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    Full day in Bangkok today so we headed to the royal palace, the main tourist attraction. Fran and I took and expedition to get there involving 2 metro lines and a boat so we really felt like we’d seen the city! I bought some dumplings in a bag for breakfast- going local! Holly and George got there via a restaurant they put their names down for a table on later in the day so we all met there about 11. I’d been here before in 2012 but to be honest my only memory was being very hot. Can confirm it was still very hot...

    Anyway it’s a really impressive palace with a very good temple in the grounds. Took lots of pictures and then had to stop for an ice cream in an air conditioned cafe before walking down to the reclining Buddha which is also very impressive - a gigantic gold Buddha!

    Holly and George left for their reservation so Fran and I found a cafe for some food- a mango only cafe which was interesting! Then we walked down to the flower market which was pretty and the got a cab back to the hotel. We were pretty exhausted by then as it’s so hot!

    Spent a couple of hours by the pool as the sun went down which was a nice way to end the day. FaceTimed mum and dad as getting a bit nervous about travel bans and visa cancellations for countries - India has already cancelled all tourist visas until April 15 (I’m supposed to be going on May 2) and Vietnam is getting strict too. Decided im still going to Myanmar tomorrow as flight already booked and will keep a close eye- if it’s getting more dodgy or UK travel advice changes then it’s likely I’ll come home early.

    We decided to go to Chinatown for some street food for dinner, had some delicious noodles in a slightly questionable place, and then went fancy and went to a rooftop (63rd floor) bar called Moon bar for a very expensive drink, but amazing view!

    Called it a night about 10.30 as were all flying tomorrow. Time to say goodbye to Holly, George and Fran and get back to travelling alone!

    Asia Tour - Bangkok

    February 22, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 29 °C

    Came back to Bangkok for a few nights before flying out to Malaysia. Found a cool apartment on Air BnB for 3 nights to treat myself before leaving Thailand.

    Absolutely loved my time in Thailand and I’ve only explored a small amount of it, there’s still so much for me to do and see that I am definitely coming back.

    My apartment has a cool view and there’s a 7-11 on the ground floor which is awesome. Although the building has signs everywhere saying short term stay is illegal.....

    Koh Samui -> Bangkok

    March 12 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    Early flight today to Bangkok- 8.45 so we landed in Bangkok about 10. Took the train to the station near our hotel and a quick (well not so quick due to heavy traffic) taxi and we arrived about 11.30. Got our rooms and then decided we needed lunch so headed to restaurant that had been recommended- Cabbages and Condoms...! They are actually a social enterprise promoting contraception within Thailand so part of your month goes to that. The food was delicious and the decor was interesting!

    Then we took a cab down to Khoasan road- the famous backpacker area and did a bit of shopping in the market, had a beer and had a foot massage with a beer. Lovely!

    In the evening Holly and George wanted to check out the trashy side to Bangkok and visit a ping pong show but Fran and I weren’t up for that so we split and we went to the hipster area - Thonglor and had a few drinks in some quite shoreditch-esque bars!

    Abreise Bangkok

    December 24, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Wie es sich für einen gelungen Weihnachtstag gehört, waren wir an unserem letzten Tag in Bangkok wieder sportlich unterwegs. Um 08:30 brachen wir von unserem Hostel auf in Richtung CF ARENA BANGKOK, wo wir ein Stunde später das Vergnügen mit Leroy als Coach hatten. Nach der Class ging’s ab zum Flughafen, wo wir 15:40 in Richtung Hu Chi Minh City starteten.

    Bangkok lässt sich mit den wenigen Worten laut, voll, modern und traditionell beschreiben. Aus dem Blickwinkel eines Europäers ist es eine faszinierende aber auch verrückte Stadt die uns den ersten Eindruck in das Leben auf dem asiatischen Kontinent näher brachte.

    Smer letisko Bangkok

    March 6, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Naše bývanie sme vygradovali izbičkou s vlastnou terasou (no dobre balkónik meter krát meter), z ktorého máme "krásny" výhľad na stenu vedľajšieho domu nachádzajúcu sa len o meter vedľa. Viď. fotky.
    Navyše sme spali na spoločnej posteli pod spoločnou ružovou perinkou :)

    Ráno pokračujeme peším presunom na zastávku vlaku na letisko a vonku je snáď 35 a ja ovešaný tými všetkými taškami myslím, že tam umriem.

    Dávame si s Tomčom posledného špilko-chickena.

    Na letisku ma vystrašia, keď pri priehradke okamžite zisťujú, že moja batožina prekračuje povolený rozmer. Keď ju zmerajú, nakoniec prižmúria oči a mne odľahne...

    P.S. Mám aj fotku, kde vidno Tomča celého v jeho pyžamku (gatiach), ale na tú som nedostal povolenie na uverejnenie.

    Laundry

    February 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Traveling is not always just sunrises, sunsets and sightseeing. Sometimes you have to do some laundry and other normal life stuff.

    Today is one of those laundry days for us, but it comes at a good time as we are both extremely exhausted after 20 days of full on traveling in Vietnam and Cambodia and we are both still nursing the bad tummy effects of our last dinner in Cambodia.

    Dryers are not a normal appliance in Asian Airbnb's and hotels, hence we use all the spaces possible to get stuff dry, from the small dry rack provided, to the shower and even inside the wardrobe.

    One night in Bangers

    December 13, 2016 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    After a seven night stay on Langkawi, we decided to leave our jungle beach haven and headed to Thailand. We took a boat to Satun and entered Thailand. We made our way to Bangkok and arrived at Cacha Hotel, an industrial, contemporary hotel. We loved it!

    For our day of fun in Bangkok we had the best street food, took part in an art exhibition and mooched around the famous MBK centre.

    Oh and I also cut Tams hair.

    The black and white picture is of the King of Thailand, who recently passed away. Thailand is now in a year of mourning. And everywhere you turn are beautiful tributes to what I can only observe was a great King.

    City Safari

    February 5, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Our city safari adventure started at 9am. We kicked off with a walk to the skytrain, then a boat ride on the river to the Grand palace, a walk to the temple, a tuk tuk ride ( the tuk-tuks are definitely more advanced and pimped up than those in Cambodia) to another boat to reach Jim Thompson house. After which we took the skytrain back to our apartment.

    Gympie

    February 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    One of the things we found extremely difficult while traveling is staying fit. It was easy on the cruise when we had a running track and gym for 24 days and even in Aus and NZ where you could just strap on some trainers and go run a 5 km or even gym in one of the free outdoor gyms.

    However Asia is a very very different story altogether. Running is not as easy as strapping trainers on and going for a run. 9 times out of 10, we could only run in parks as the roads has no sidewalks and even if they have sidewalks these are considered to be part of the road, like in Ho Chi Minh where bikes will literally run you over on the sidewalk. The roads are just so congested and the lack of road rules makes running on the road super dangerous.

    So every time we have accommodation with facilities like this one we make full use of the facilities and hit the gym everyday. Unfortunately the last time we had a gym was in KL so its been 20 plus days since we really did much exercise except for yoga on the beach in Koh Rong Samloem.

    We both feel unbelievably unfit and it makes us realize that we enjoy feeling fit and healthy. Thats just something we enjoy about having in our routine of normal life.

    After only 2 days in the gym it feels like every muscle in my body hates me, but a good hate. I am definitely looking forward to regular training again.
