The-Best-Places-To-Eat-Thai-Food-In-Bangkok

Thailand´s capital Bangkok is obviously one of the world’s best place to eat tasty Thai food. There are so many restaurants and street vendors selling Thai food that it can sometimes be difficult to spot the really good ones.

Bangkok´s Temple In The Sky – Golden Mount (Wat Saket)

by Maria Wulff Hauglann| Last updated Nov 27, 2018

The beautiful Golden Mount (Wat Saket) is one of our favorite temples in Bangkok and a must-visit when in Bangkok. To reach the temple, you have to walk 344 steps up a hill. The 360-degree view of Bangkok from the top is fantastic, and it is the perfect place to watch the sunset. Golden Mount is not as famous as many of the other Bangkok temples, so it is less crowded with a peaceful atmosphere.

12 Markets In Bangkok You Should Not Miss

by Maria Wulff Hauglann| Last updated May 16, 2022

I simply LOVE markets! I like the vibrant atmosphere and walking around in between the different booths looking at all the strange and useful and sometimes not so useful things they sell. And when I find the perfect thing that I really like, it might be that I can bargain it down in price and make a scoop! If I can walk away from there with a few bargains, then my market trip has been a complete success! 🙂

Bangkok has some of the best and biggest markets in the world, and they are part of the reason why we love the “City of Angels” so much.

Even though we have been to Bangkok many times, Expique showed us some places we have never been before, places we wouldn`t know of or find ourselves. We also saw Bangkok`s famous sites by night.

It is a maze of alleyways, centuries old temples and hectic markets, filled with hidden gems few that few visitors ever get to experience.

Bangkok is one of my favorite shopping cities in the world! I just love shopping in Bangkok, with its combination of huge posh shopping centers with international and Asian fashion design, but once you pop out on the street you can also find all kinds of cool and cheap stuff!

I haven’t found any other city in the world with this kind of combination, where you can both shop cheap local designs at Chatuchak weekend market, and luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Chanel in a close by shopping mall. The contrasts in this city are what I like the most! You can find everything! Read my ultimate shopping guide to Bangkok!
