We were unstoppable, and one more long weekend. Bangkok it was then, to explore a  little bit cityscape. It was humid, hot, polluted but colourful, bright & fun.

Pink taxis were quite a sight 😀

Bridges and wide streets and tall buildings, kissing the sky

Our hotel was pretty much in the heart of the city

We had a local friend there, who helped us try out some local cuisine. It was yummy. That was some deep fried crisp bread with chicken curry

The following day was a trip down to the famous chatuchak weekend market – an array of tiny make-shift shops of every possible stuff – clothes, shoes,  home decor, art & craft,   etc etc. We did buy small stuff, like spices, few souvenirs, but overall enjoyed the vibrance and tidbit of small eats like this coconut ice-cream.

It was incomplete without visiting the Golden Buddha…and all I can say is that it was just so calming.

So, Bangkok was a short, fun trip worth covered. Dalai Lama, quoted “Once a year, go someplace You’ve never been before” I add, it doesn’t matter if you get a chance to go twice or more than once a year, but go….!! 😀
