Thailand

Visiting the motorbike festival, watching a free Muai Thai match, and probably the best Japanese buffet ever!

Last night, we saw the organizers setting up the stage for a massive exhibition outside Central World. Looking at the banner, we realised that the Bangkok Motorbike Festival 2012 was opening the next day. Ingo loves motorbikes (and the pretty models who showcase them) so we made plans to visit the show tomorrow. Bangkok Motorbike Festival 2012 It was raining in the morning and we weren’t interesting in getting wet. Hence we started the day late in the afternoon and we started walking to Central World, which was 15 mins walk away from our hostel. There were a lot of cool motorbikes  being exhibited and looking at the number of motorbikes on the streets, I don’t think sales would be a problem. I even saw a police motorbike at the show. Very vintage, very cool! Update: There was an article that I read after my trip that mentioned about how a former.

Experience Bangkok on a bicycle

If you are able to ride a bicycle, I would strongly recommend you to consider joining a bicycle tour to explore Bangkok. Bangkok is an urban city, very much like Singapore. After strolling the streets for the past two days, I was feeling bored about walking around again. I wasn’t going to rent a car or motorbike because I didn’t know how to drive or ride one. Last night, I browsed through travel websites for ideas and I found what’s probably the next best thing. A bicycle tour around Bangkok!.

Chilling out in Bangkok, the cheap and expensive way

In the evening, I met up with Ingo, Ogi and Jihoon for dinner and drinks. Ogi was going to be late so we decided to get some drinks first. Ingo always wanted to visit the sky bar where the movie Hangover 2 was filmed, Sirocco Bar and Restaurant at Lebua State Tower. Unfortunately, nobody bothered to google the name of the bar and we simply hopped onto a taxi and told the driver to drive us to the highest bar in Bangkok. Not a good idea! The taxi driver drove us to Baiyoke Sky Hotel instead. We didn’t know that this wasn’t the sky bar that we wanted to go so we paid the pretty expensive entrance to get up there. Although the Rooftop bar at Baiyoke Sky Hotel wasn’t the one we intended to go, it was equally impressive. I would say that this bar is probably one of the.

A normal day in Bangkok

After a tiring night, I woke up in the morning and decided that I was going to take the day slow and chill out. Ingo was still asleep so I took out my laptop and brought it down to the cafe/lobby to suef the web while having my breakfast. I know I shouldn’t be doing any form of work while I’m on vacation but I really hate to let my inbox grow exponentially only to fight the giant backlog when i get home. Took the time to update my Facebook status as well. I had jam and toast complemented with a cup of tea which was a great start to the lovely morning..
