25 Aug, 2019 in Bangkok

In my last visit to Bangkok I was located in the old part of Bangkok not too far away from China Town where the Bangkok Design Week titled “Fusing Forward” was taking place across several locations in the area.   Check out the event map and you’ll see it was basically all over Bangkok:   […]

10 Jul, 2019 in Chang Mai

Revisiting Chang Mai 14 years being away, there were a few spots that I was looking forward to seeing again. One of those was the Doi Suthep National Park and Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, set high on the mountains overlooking the city of Chang Mai. I rented a scooter, and headed up the winding roads […]

22 Jun, 2019 in Bangkok

Bangkok has a number of funky museums but I think Siriraj Medical Museum tops them all. On the surface, it seems quite straightforward. It’s a medical museum in a hospital, showcasing some of the regional medical history. Yet there is something about this museum that made this specific museum a hit, their displayed collection of […]

8 Jun, 2019 in Koh Samui

During Chinese/Lunar New Year I escaped Hong Kong to Thailand, and found my way to the southern island of Ko Samui. I did not intend to but the beach hotel I got was right next to China Town and so I was very lucky to catch the very lively local celebrations near the local template. […]

7 Jun, 2019 in Chang Mai

At the end of my Thailand trip, I spent a couple of days in Chang Mai after 14 years of being away. I rented a scooter and headed up the mountains to explore temples and see Chang Mai from above. After making a stop at the lively Doi Suthep, I continued onwards and saw a […]

28 May, 2019 in Chang Mai

After 14 years of being away I made my way back to where it all began – Chang Mai, my first stop on the 14+ years travel journey. I revisited places I’ve already been to, but also got a chance to see new things. I rented a scooter for a couple of days, and on […]

25 Mar, 2019 in Chang Mai, Visions

Chang Mai was my first stop in Asia. Before Chang Mai, I had no idea what Asia was like. I was originally set to start from Bangkok, but then everyone warned me that I should aim for a softer landing and immediately take a domestic flight to Chang Mai. And they were right, later when […]

24 Mar, 2019 in Koh Samui, Visions

This Chinese new year, I returned to Thailand after 14 years of being away. I can’t imagine why it took me so long. Especially having lived in Asia for a few years since. But I’m very glad that I did. My visit to Koh Samui, which I remembered as an over-touristy commercialized island, compared to […]

10 Mar, 2019 in Bangkok, Visions

Thailand was my first stop in Asia, where I spent over 3 months, on and off.┬áIt’s been 14 years since I left, and did not have a chance to visit back until this year. I was curious to see what I’ll remember and how I’ll feel about things. To my surprise, there’s very little I […]
