Bangkok - Thailand

Bangkok is the capital and largest city of Thailand, with about 6 million inhabitants. It's a big city, busy, but at the same time interesting to know.

Our passage through Bangkok was relatively quick. We arrived on 18/12/2010 in the early morning (actually it was still early morning) after a long and troubled journey by bus from Chiang Mai We were super tired. We settled in a hotel and slept. So we woke up, we went out to enjoy the day a bit. We walked through the city pretty.

The next day (19/12), we went to the historic city of Ayutthaya . After the tour, we returned in the late afternoon to Bangkok and we walked a little further through the city.

The next day (20/12) also strolled a bit through Bangkok. And we also organize our things to move on. In the late afternoon we took a van to the airport and boarded the night towards India.

Ko Ratanakosin is a huge temple complex, forming one of the most sacred Buddhist Thai.

Street Food: As in all of Thailand, Bangkok offers endless options for food in the streets. It is a great and inexpensive option to sample some of the most popular dishes of Thai cuisine.

There are several food stalls in the streets around Khao San and Banglamphu, the region where most tourists is hosted. This photo was taken on quiet street Soi Rambutri in Banglamphu.

The Southeast Asia is very rich in fruits. There is a huge variety.


On the night of 20/12 left Thailand and took a flight to Delhi, India.


- We stayed in the neighborhood Banglamphu near the busy Khao San. The alleys Banglamphu are much more quiet and there are several hotel options. The area around Khao San and Banglamphu is usually where most tourists stay average budget down, backpackers, etc.. We stayed at Baan Sabai Guesthouse (Soi Rambutri the street), where we paid 350 baht for a double room without bathroom inside (shared bathroom outside the room).

- Any hotel or travel agency in Banglamphu and / or sells Khao San passages van to the airport (transportation, each hour, which costs 130 baht per person).

- Travel agencies also offer several options of tours around Bangkok.

You can't walk very far without stumbling into a restaurant, guesthouse, or travel agency that can hook you up with a class. The one I attended is called the Thai Food Cooking School, their office is near Thapae Gate in the old part of the city. Here's their address:
2-6 Ratchadamnuen Road, Chiang Mai, Thailand, 50200.
Got a nifty little cookbook from them, too, and I'm happy to share recipes, though I haven't tried all of them. Chiang Mai is particularly known for being the place where you can take a cooking class--the success of one class a few years back spawned dozens of copy cats. I don't know of any classes in Bangkok, but I'm sure you could find some by asking around.

Yeah. went on a tour though.
