  1. With bars reopening, I made the trip to check out the scene. Once again, stayed at the Rembrandt Suites Hotel, great value at 1050 per night for a 4-star hotel. Asked for a higher floor this time. Over to the basement at Robinson's for a bite of oyster omelette, 60 baht. Dessert upstairs at McDonalds, never saw the place so empty at 6 PM A brief stop at Terminal 21 The Asoke Intersection at 7 PM Needed to freshen up after the bus ride. Could have showered at the hotel, but I
  2. Lumpini Park recently reopened after being closed for a few months due to covid. I took the opportunity to spend a few hours there. The park covers 360 rai, on land donated by King Rama IV in 1925. A statue of King Rama IV decorates the entrance in the southwest corner, facing the Sala Daeng BTS station. Entrance required a temperature check, although few people were present mid-day. An oasis in the heart of the city An artificial lake covers much of the grounds, people like to feed the fish.
  3. I lived in lower Sukhumvit for seven years, until early this year. Hadn't been back for four months. It's a bit different, first things you notice now is the uncongestion and the clean air. There's social distancing everywhere, in the malls and restaurants. I always felt cramped living here because things were sized for Thais, but now I can enjoy my space. Even had a free seat next to me on the bus coming in and out of town and didn't have to pay for it. Gateway Mall I booked the Rembrandt Hotel on Soi 18 for half the regular price, there are some excellent domestic
  4. A Thai, at least one, who has an expired passport, can get a new one the same day in Bangkok. As best I can determine this was at the Klong Toei office and the applicant probably needs to be there first thing in the morning. This is second hand, but I saw the new passport. To make things more interesting, she lost her queue card and fee receipt after turning in the application. They found her in the computer although my impression is they weren't in a rush to do so.
  5. Just had an email through from Etihad, with another 6 day sale on finishing Thursday next week. Return flights to Bangkok in September can be had for £382!!!!! Plenty of other dates to choose from.
  6. For anyone that hasn't been to the Grand Palace in Bangkok, its well worth the money to spend a few hours wondering around the grounds of this palace and temple. Don't let any touts outside tell you its shut, as it is open 365 days a year, unless civic or royal engagements take place. Photos taken at the tail end of September 2015
  7. Just a few shots of cruising down the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok at the end of September. And yes, it was raining on and off all day long.
  8. Love it or hate in Bangkok, one of the most popular places to visit in this great city is the Khao San Road area. It can be a great people watching area, and when the sun sets and the lights come on, its quite something to see. Unluckily for me, it was raining this day, so i didn't hang around to long here. The first hotel i ever stayed in in Bangkok back in 2002...................................... Still love the old 60's style buildings in this area..................................... If your looking for that certain lucky number for your Thai lottery win, then Ratchadam
  9. Well, i've been back from Vietnam and Thailand a week now, and this is the first chance i've had to get some photos organised for you. These are photos from my walk on day 1 around Bangkok. Started off on Sukhumvit, all along Ploenchit then to the Erawan shrine, down and into Silom, then back out and through Lumpini Park, up Wireless and back through Nana and to my hotel. I believe it was along where these benches are that the bomb was set off a couple of months ago............................ Armed guards all aro
  10. A few photos of scene's in Bangkok, taken back in January this year.
  11. Kind of like Marmite, you either love it or hate, and the same can be said for Khao Sanh Road in Bangkok. I think for me, the road could actually grow on me, there always seems to be something new or different down there, but i have to say i do like this road at night fall, when the sun is setting and the neon lights come on........................ All photos taken back in January this year. Its just been busy so far, and this is one of the first chances i have had to start posting photos.
  12. This is one of my favourite places in Bangkok to visit. Its just so quiet and so calm, its very relaxing in a city that never really sleeps, and that is so noisy and dirty. This place is an Oasis of peace and tranquility.
  13. Wat Saket , more commonly called The Golden Mount in Bangkok. Is this the most natural highest high point in Bangkok?
  14. Whilst in Bangkok a couple of weeks ago, i decided that i wanted to repay a visit to the Royal Thai Air Force museum up near Don Mueng airport, but unlucky me, i had picked the one day of the year that i shouldnt have visited, National Childrens Day back on Saturday 10th January. The whole place was packed out with kids everywhere, dragging their parents from 1 plane to another, and from 1 stall to another. As much as i thought i would have hated it, fighting my way through children for the day, it actually turned out to be great day and one of the highlights of my trip. Follow the advent
  15. There is more to Swampy than just a duty free area and a departure gate, before you board that long flight back home. If only that guy in the BBC show who was 14 hours early knew about this, maybe he would of been more attentive to his flight time.
  16. I saw this on Facebook, and thought if you hadn't seen it before (as I hadn't), you might find it interesting. This was made in 1937, before the nation's name "Thailand" was used. http://youtu.be/YFXTbiOZk8w
  17. Hello everybody! Is it possible to get from Bangkok to Pattaya after 23:00? I'm going to the concert at Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre and need to be in Pattaya by morning. What are the options? Thank you in advance
  18. Photos taken about 2 weeks ago. Decided to visit the rally sites for the couple of days I were in BKK. The whole area (between Centralworld and Siam) just seemed to be one big street market and party, with the odd shout on the microphone from someone trying to gee up the crowd every now and again.
  19. I always enjoy this trip every time I take it. There is always something new to see whilst cruising down the river. It has to be one of the best trips you can take anywhere in Bangkok, and for only 15 baht per journey, without doubt the cheapest trip to do. Photos taken 28th Jan 2014.
  20. Is there any more of a depressing site in the world other than the check-in area of Swampy? Finally, the observation deck on landside seem's to be open to the public at last. Other times I have tried to access this area, ive never got any higher than the top of the escalator, but this time you can now make it to the top. Not really a lot up there though, apart from a view of the flight apron, the post office/CAT office, and a model of the entire airport complex and perimeter. Photos taken June 2013.
  21. The departure gate is always a depressing sight to me, especially when you now you have to be up and out of the hotel at 05.00am for your flight back home at 08.30am. Taken June 2013. t%202/DSCN1109_zps3dbe825f.jpg[/url]
  22. Not quite sure what the food festival was in aid off, but it did seem to be well attended by Thai's, with very few falangs. If the Thai's are eating there, then the food must be good! Photos taken back in June 2013. Only just got around to posting these now.
  23. Victory Monument and the surrounding roundabout. Photos taken June 2013. And for people who didn't know just how close Victory Monument is to the Expressway, the cars in the middle of this photo are on the actual Expressway..................
  24. This must be the biggest market ive ever seen in Thailand dedicated to selling just one thing, Buddha amulets. It seems to follow the road all along the river around the Grand Palace/Wat Po area, and must stretch for at least 1.5 miles in length.
