Why we had to visit Bangkok

Many travelers flee Thailands capital quickly after they have experienced the city’s heat, crowds, smells and chaos. Not us though, we actually love hectic Bangkok so much that we return to the city quite frequently. 

The beautiful temples, immense skyscrapers, intense markets, tasty streetfood, hypermodern shopping malls and diverse nightlife are all a very good reason to visit Bangkok. But that is not why we have been there four times and even spent most of our honeymoon in the city. It’s because of our lovely friends that really make us feel at home everytime we visit.

Off the beaten track: hit and miss

Sometimes you plan ahead a little. We mostly do this to make the most of our time here, to be efficient, so to say. At times this means that we book hotels or buses for the next step and save time. At other times, this means that we book hotels or buses for the next step and really regret leaving a place a little too soon.
