Looking for a secret Thai island? Yes, indeed, one still exists and no, it ain’t Koh Phi Phi. And today I will let you in on its secret location. You are getting a real hidden gem here.
The reality is that we travel bloggers always talk about hidden gems, getting off the beaten path and like to pretend that THE beach is still new and exciting. Alas, in most of the cases whatever we write about is none of these.
Offseason travel – this post has been in the making for a long time. In fact, ever since I realized how nice it is to swim in a deserted pool during a rainstorm in Sri Lanka.
Without realizing it, I have done a lot of offseason travel this year. This happened for two reasons: tourism boards prefer to invite bloggers when it is not too crowded and when I find a place I want to go to, I want to go now, season be damned.
We all have our happy places. A place that our mind wanders to when we close our eyes and need to escape reality for a moment. What is yours?
One of mine is a boutique hotel in Bangkok. That shouldn’t come as a big surprise to anyone who knows me. I love hotels and usually, I don’t like to play favorites. But there is one that is special, one that has been on my mind for the past three years and one that I hope to return to many times to come. The Asadang, a boutique hotel in Bangkok.
I love Bangkok, I think we have established that much. My list of little favorites is endless but next to a lot of cheap massages and the flower market, I am always in search for some great food. From the hip and the happening to the local and authentic.
Bangkok, baby! A love letter to a hot city.
This time, I was lucky enough to have yet another local guide fetching me from the airport and taking me straight to one of Bangkok’s oldest eateries.
