    Umzug in Bangkok

    January 26, 2018 in Thailand ⋅

    Den Aufenthalt in dem Hotel, in dem wir die letzten drei Nächte verbracht hatten, konnten wir leider nicht verlängern – ausgebucht. Unser Flug nach Chiang Mai geht aber erst morgen. Also Umzug: Rucksäcke auf 🎒 und 900 m durch Chinatown! Hier schlafen wir in einer kleinen Box (eigentlich sogar zwei), haben aber immerhin unser eigenes Bad. Später dann kreuz ❌ und quer durch die Stadt. „Do you want to drink blue beer?“ Was für eine Frage …
    Kurze Follower-Befragung: Das florale Muster am Tempel, den wir heute besucht haben: Bettwäsche 🛏 oder Tee-Service 🍵 ? Wir waren uns nicht einig …

    Romantik an Plastiktischen in Chinatown

    January 23, 2018 in Thailand ⋅

    Unser Hotelzimmer in Bangkoks Chinatown 🇹🇭🇨🇳 hat zwar kein Fenster, ist aber ansonsten echt gut und mega gelegen. Zu unserem „Restaurant“ heute Abend, sind es nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß. Und um uns herum ist mächtig was los. Die Straßen und Streetfood-Buden sind rappelvoll und echt cool 😎👍

    Auf Bangkoks Tempelpfaden

    July 18, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ 🌧 30 °C

    Nach den vielen Eindrücken in Japan und dem Gewusel Bangkoks merkten wir, dass wir eine kleine Auszeit brauchten, um das bisher Bestaunte verarbeiten zu können. Diesen Sightseeing-freien Tag gönnten wir uns gestern: Wir schliefen aus, gammelten in der Lounge unseres coolen neuen Boutique Hostels im China Look ab, bummelten durch das Siam Einkaufscenter (wir mussten schliesslich noch die passende Garderobe für Yadas & Andrés Hochzeit am Strand kaufen) und schlemmten uns den ganzen Tag durch die Strassenstände und Night Food Markets.

    Am nächsten Tag besuchten wir wieder 2 Tempel; zunächst den „Wat Traimitr“, der an Chinatown grenzt, und eine 5,5 Tonnen schwere Buddha Statue ausstellt.
    Als nächstes ging‘s zur Tempelanlage „Wat Hua Lamphong“. Überall imponierten uns mal wieder die Detailverliebtheit und Farbenpracht der vielen kleinen und grossen Tempel.
    Wir lassen hier einfach mal die Bilder für sich sprechen...

    Bangkok - Sightseeing

    February 4, 2017 in Thailand ⋅

    Took the really packed river buses down to Chinatown for a wander around the area. The streets are so congested, it's a maze of lanes and passages selling an incredible range of items, most of it imported from China. It was packed with people and the shops were interspersed with food stands & trolleys making a great atmosphere. Each street specialised in one particular thing, how they select one shop from another baffles us. One highlight was in the flower wholesale market, where each stall was crammed full of yellow flower heads being threaded ready for temple offerings. Also, was the ginger stall where the ladies spend all day finely chopping ginger for food stalls to buy off them. On our shopping list were bowls, mugs, a spatula and a cooking pot for New Zealand- we found plenty of options to choose from.
    The next day we went by boat bus again to Wat Arun where a mix of Chinese and Thai Buddhism made for interesting temples and structures. All the designs on the Stupa were made from pieces of broken plates, jugs and cups from several hundred years ago.
    It was great in the evening to meet up with a friend called Dina who we went rafting with in Nepal, 3 months ago. She was passing through the city at the same time as us so shared a meal and a couple of beers and chatted about what we've been up to.
    Tomorrow we have an 8am bus to commence over 36 hours of travel..... The joy of it!

    Bangkok - Burma Embassy

    February 23, 2015 in Thailand ⋅

    Arrived in Bangkok mid-morning and after a quick shower and change of clothes I got a taxi to the Myanmar (Burma) embassy. I got there at 11.50am and didn't leave until 2.40pm... There were loads of us sitting in a hot room dilligently waiting with our application forms and passports. When i finally made it up to the counter (I was the last for the day - they shut the door at 12pm) I opted for next day pick up as I couldn't stand to go back that afternoon. All part of the experience! Staying at the Shanghai Mansion hotel, a little bit of luxury.
    Last photo - building a coffin on the side of the road...

    March 31, 2017 in Thailand ⋅

    I am so lucky- already made friendship with my driver. he showed me around the temples which are open with no one in and no cost for ticket. timing was perfect to hit the sunset on the golden mount.

    after fun riding the city - checking a tailor shop and a mall he brought me to a nice local restaurantRead more

    Bangkok...

    December 3, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    ...bietet mit einer Einwohnerzahl zwischen offiziell 8 Mio und geschätzten 15 Mio eine interessante Mischung aus alten Traditionen und einer modernen Skyline. Es ist für kunstvolle Heiligtümer und ein pulsierendes Leben auf den Straßen bekannt . Der von vielen Booten genutzte Chao Phraya fließt durch das Netz der Kanäle und auch an der Altstadt Rattanakosin mit dem opulenten Großen Palast und dem Tempel Wat Phra Kaeo vorbei. In der Nähe befinden sich der Tempel Wat Pho mit einer riesigen liegenden Buddha-Statue und auf der anderen Flussseite der Wat Arun mit seinen steilen Treppen und dem Spitzturm im Stil der Khmer.
    Allerdings sind 36°C des Guten zuviel. Zudem habe ich im (einer Tiefkühltruhe gleichenden) Airport in Da Nang eine saftige Erkältung eingefangen. Wir haben daher beschlossen den geplanten Ausflug zu den Tempeln in Ankor Wat in Kambodscha zu streichen und die letzte Woche in Bangkok zu bleiben.

    Chinatown bangkok

    December 3, 2016 in Thailand ⋅

    Chinatown was next. I was told it's far away. But I like walking.
    Chinatown is like every chinatown - selling junk electronics, unknown medicine stuff, gold and stuff I wouldn't eat even if it was the last food on earth. It is cool though thay you can buy curry in sacks (yes, literally!).
