My first foot steps in Asia were made in Bangkok. This city is nothing like I was imagining it. It is far more exxtreme. The good things are mtuch better, the bad much worse.
What to see
Temples are a must on your first visit. Make sure to check the opening hours and national_holidays.
Place to stay
We found our both condos on airbnb, we loved the incredible view and the central location. Modern condos have great pools, gyms and roof top terraces. Only the plumbing could be improved, most bathrooms and bedrooms smell like sewage in Thailand.
We love the gourmet grocery stores for their amazing organic mangos and some other organic fruit like apple bananas, papaya, greens, and veggies. We had most luck in these here
Other gourmet markets are in Siam Paragon, K Village, Terminal 21.
Not really worth going if you don’t live near by.
Produce is neglect able, fruit is never ripe, veggies not abundant. Great place to shop for natural hair car products and soaps.
Cabs are simply disgusting in Bangkok. Every driver we ever had smokes inside the car and tried to cover the smell with the more disgusting scent. We took a regular cap from the airport and after waining for 40 minutes we endet up sitting in a stinking hell for another 40 minutes. We should have called an Uber. Uber driver have much cleaner cars, we never sate in a smelly car. Download the uber app.. Get your discount code here Startguthaben für dich.
