Travelogue

Thailand

Street Food in Bangkok

We visited few restaurants and some eateries. The recommended ones are Ban Khun Mae (Siam Square) and Cabbages & Condoms (Sukhumvit).

You do your own research and find out the reviews about these 2 restaurants. Since this is not my usual personal tour, I won’t have time to cover many sites.

Street views @ Bangkok

I prefer to visit the old town instead of the high rise buildings or shopping mall.

Bangkok Chinatown (4)

We got the chance to interact with the locals and spending less time in the traffic jam.

Impressions of arts and floras at Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is different from the bustling Bangkok city, the former is more peaceful and artistic. Most of the handicrafts ‘made in Thailand’ came from Northern Thailand.

Impressions of Northern Thai Foods

Thai foods in Northern Thailand (Chiang Mai) has some differences when compared to the Southern Thailand (Bangkok). Signature Thai dishes like Tong Yam Gong have different presentation and flavour.

Thailand never disappoint tourist when it comes to food choices. Let’s me start off with what you can buy in the shopping mall – bamboo worms as snack (like potato chips in other countries).
