Chao Phraya Boat Trip

Taking a boat trip along the Chao Phraya is a must. I could put up a few photographs of the shoreline and end this post now but I’m sorry to disappoint you, I won’t…I have to practice writing if I want to be a writer. Apparantly practice makes perfect which would explain how I became…

Wat Samphran Dragon Temple

I’ve visited some unusual temples in my time in Thailand but I don’t think I’ve seen any that rivals the uniqueness of Wat Samphran Dragon Temple. The Dragon Temple, as it’s more commmonly called derives its name for very obvious reasons – the huge dragon that is wrapped around the 17-story building. My First Encounter…

A Trip To Thai Immigration (Again)

For anyone that has been reading this blog a while you’ll know that the last time I took a trip to the Thai Immigration office it was…a bit stressful.

The Golden Mount and The Vultures of Bangkok

The title of this post indicates that this will be a serious story, featuring horrific mental imagery that will leave you emotionally scared and unable to sleep – it may do but don’t worry, I will not be mentioning my sweaty bits in this deeply serious tale. It seems that all major cities have, at some point…

Five Best Things To Do In Bangkok!

Sometimes I like to write something really silly…this is one such time…I would like to apologise and I hope the images you are about to see do not leave you too traumatized. Being in Bangkok can sometimes be overwhelming, with so much to do it’s difficult to know what to choose. Should you visit one…

Muay Thai Boxing And Hot Dogs

Muay Thai Boxing is a sport I knew very littleĀ  about before moving to Thailand but that is something I was desperate to rectify… Quick Thinking. The crowd was beginning to roar and shout in anticipation of the battle royale that was going to happen in front of their very eyes and the sweat that…

The Golden Mount And Sweaty Legs

I’ve been living in Thailand for roughly 7 of the last 9 months and I still look at men wearing trousers in this heat with great awe. It’s probably similar to the feeling people must have had when they first saw moving pictures or found out that The Bee Gees were men. I have a few…
