    Asia Tour - Bangkok

    February 22 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.....

    Mit dem Boot nach Wat Sriboonreung

    May 30 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Leider regnet es heute, aber ich will den Tag dennoch nutzen. Daher laufe ich zum Asoke Pier in Makkasan und nehme das Expressboot zum Wat Sriboonreung. Mit dem Boot dauert es nur einen Bruchteil der Zeit, die man mit dem Auto kalkulieren müsste.

    Smer letisko Bangkok

    March 6 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.

    Time to leave Bangkok.. @ BKK Gate B3

    March 17, 2015 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Nach 5 unglaublichen Tagen in Bangkok geht's jetzt weiter nach Chiang Mai in den Norden. Habe mich doch gegen den VIP Nachtbus entschieden. Die heißen übrigens alle VIP, Express oder Premium, das heißt nix. Thais übertreiben ganz gerne mal. Ich sag nur: "120 Baht, cheap cheap! Very good price my friend!" Hmh, schon komisch dass ich gestern für die gleiche Strecke 50 bezahlt hab.. :D

    Statt 12 Std. unruhiger Nacht im Bus also nur 1:15 Std. mit Bangkok Airways. Deutlich mehr Komfort für nur 46 Euro. Und die Chance heute Abend noch ein kühles Chang auf dem Night Bazaar in Chiang Mai zu trinken. :P

    Fühle mich einfach super wohl!! Kommt mir auch schon vor wie eine halbe Ewigkeit. Dabei bin ich letzten Freitag erst gelandet. Und stehe ja immer noch am Anfang meiner Reise. Ganze 17 Tage u. 3300 km Strecke liegen noch vor mir. :))

    Aber alleine Bangkok hat noch so viel zu bieten u. zu entdecken. Gut dass ich am Ende meiner Tour noch mal 2 Nächte hier bin.

    By the way.. Ich habe noch nie einen so sauberen u. perfekt organisierten Flughafen wie BKK gesehen! Frankfurt kann da in keinster Weise mithalten.

    Also, auf nach Chiang Mai... -> Boarding for Flight PG 227

    I hate VISAS

    February 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Its official, I hate the fact that we need visas to basically travel anywhere. Yes there are something like 90 countries South Africans can travel to without a visa. Unfortunately almost 85 of those countries are in the top 100 countries nobody wants to visit as a tourist, for example Iraq or Syria are in the 90.

    We have been planning a cruise from Singapore to Dubai to end our trip in style, and stop along the way at the Sri-Lanka, India and Oman. We managed to find out that can travel to both Sri-Lanka and Oman without visas if we travel via cruise-ship. India unfortunately is a different story, we were unable to get hold of anyone to confirm if it was the same for India and we confirmed that e-visas for India only apply for traveling via air and not allow via any coastal entry.

    As a final attempt to clarify this, we set out to be at the India consulate in Bangkok first thing in the morning.

    Now this is the thing that irritates me the most about visas and the process to get visas, for some reason diplomats think the should treat potential visa applicants like criminals and make it as difficult as possible to get the correct information to do the application.

    We arrived at the consulate and firstly the security did not want us to enter the gate. Then they called someone from inside and he was so rude, we could hardly finish a sentence. I wanted to ask: Does SA citizen need a visa if traveling on a cruise-ship? I was only able to get to the word "visa" before he dismissed me and sent me off to some consultant that handles visa applications. Obviously I did not just leave it there, I insisted he answers my question as we did not want to apply for a visa if its not necessary and we know from experience these consultants know just as little as we do as they are merely like a postal service between the applicant and the consulate.

    Again he insisted that they would be able to answer my question. We then made our way to the consultants and surprise surprise they were unable to answer the question and referred us back to the consulate. The only thing they could confirm is that even if we did need a visa we wouldn't be able to apply for one in Bangkok as only Thai citizens or Expat work permit holders in Thailand can apply for visas there.

    Very frustrated and irritated by the fact that we can't really get a straight answer we walk back to out Airbnb to cancel our planned cruise and start planning alternative things to fill the void of the cruise and get us to Dubai.

    India's loss is the Philippines's gain, as the Philippines is one of the few countries we don't need a visa if we travel there for less than 21 days. After Thailand we now head to the Philippines then Singapore and from Singapore we fly to Dubai which is the last stop on our amazing life changing journey.

    Rustic Island to Citylife

    February 5, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    The beauty of South East Asia is that you can get whatever you want. After a wonderful time on the lovely peaceful beaches of Cambodia we find ourselves in Bangkok, Thailand’s capital. Bangkok has about 15million people, around 50% Chinese and loads of other expats too. Bangkok is a city of contrasts with action around every corner, it didn't take us long to realize this is hip and happening. Even driving through the streets past midnight last night made me realize we did the right thing extending our stay to a few extra nights. We need to finalize the last chapter of our adventure and there is no better place to do so.

    After our city safari its time to slip on a dress and embrace the buzz of this world class city.
