Bangkok was everything that I expected it to be… as well as more. It is my favorite metropolis that I’ve traveled to inward Southeast Asia, as well as then far. I love the overall vibe, the broad gain of attractions, as well as the people. They are the friendliest locals I’ve e’er encountered as well as that is despite of the linguistic communication barrier. If yous are planning to go to the city, brand certain yous banking concern jibe out my recommendations on what to create inward Bangkok, Thailand.
Tour the Grand Palace as well as Temple of Emerald Buddha
You can’t tell you’ve been to Bangkok unless yous visited the Grand Palace as well as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew). This is a complex of buildings that include the regal palace (official residence of the King of Thailand), numerous other buildings, the temple of the Emerald Buddha, opened upward lawns as well as courtyards. You tin see the Grand Palace (some parts of it are unopen to the public) for 500 Baht. It is a must-see as well as you’ll desire to accept a lot of photos spell inward in that place because of the elaborately designed structures that volition exit yous inward awe.
Another cracking agency to sense Bangkok is via the long-tailed (and vibrantly colored) speedboats equally they navigate the canals of Bangkok traveling from 1 side to the other. We took a Khlong Tour that is priced at 700 Baht (per person) as well as the tour volition final for nearly an hour. We took a few stops along the agency including the chance to watch the statue of the 9-face Buddha.
This is the house to instruct to when yous desire to bask the nightlife inward Bangkok. Unfortunately, Thailand was even as well as then inward a mourning dry soil next the give-up the ghost of their honey King during our visit. Hence, the mood was quite somber as well as in that place were non much partying going on. It was even as well as then vibrant though alongside lots of tourists enjoying street nutrient as well as having a drink.
Shopping was my favorite activity inward Bangkok – aside from sightseeing, of course! But it is amazing how many cracking deals yous tin uncovering inward Bangkok. I loved visiting the Chatuchak Weekend Market (also known equally JJ Weekend Market). You tin uncovering a lot of locally made, handcrafted items that are sold at cracking prices. This market, obviously, is opened upward alone during weekends as well as then brand certain yous allot fourth dimension for the weekends to see this house spell inward Bangkok.
I love Thai food; relieve for the overly spicy Pad Thai that were served to us inward a few restaurants. Although I am non into spicy foods, the ones that I tried were exemplary. Even the street nutrient was amazing. We spent most of our fourth dimension inward Bangkok bask their local dishes as well as it’s 1 of the things that I missy most nearly the city. In Bangkok, yous volition definitely endure spoiled for options when it comes to food.
This was 1 business office of the trip that I didn’t facial expression to bask equally much equally I did. Asiatique is an open-air mall that offers enough of shopping, dining as well as amusement options. You tin instruct to Asiatique to eat, lookout adult man alive performances or ride the ferris wheel, which is 60-meters high alongside 42 gondolas. Be prepared to hold off inward a long queue if yous do, though!
Visit Siam Park
If yous desire pure wholesome fun, a see to Siam Park City (also known equally Siam Water Park) is a must. We purchased a 1-day transcend worth 1,100 Baht, which is inclusive of entrance to all commons rides as well as a buffet lunch. It was definitely worth it equally nosotros got to elbow grease many subject commons rides as well as swim at the moving ridge pool. If yous are traveling alongside kids to Bangkok, I highly recommend yous see this attraction!

Hello! Just a quick update. This weekend, the Lemoncurd Kids hosted a Christmas political party gig at the Bassment inwards Chelmsford to cap off a wonderful twelvemonth where they released their debut album together with won best band at Chelmsford’s PANIC Awards.
I was real grateful to hold upward invited to play, together with had a slap-up fourth dimension playing to one-time friends together with roughly novel faces. Since it was a festive political party gig, the ready was pretty much the Jez Kemp Greatest Pop Smash Hits, merely it was overnice to besides bust out a novel vocal “Liars Will Tell You The World Is Simple”.
It’s besides i of the most fun sets I’ve played inwards ages – gigs are ever easier together with to a greater extent than relaxed when you lot tin bring a express joy together with joke alongside your mates inwards the front end row.
The other bands Zen Motel together with Creme de Chevre were punk AF together with amusingly ridiculous respectively, together with it was slap-up to meet one-time fourth dimension Chelmsfordian Dave Moriaty play a solo set.
It’s fair to country that a novel city, busy job, doing my masters together with starting a novel human relationship has meant that this twelvemonth I’ve done less writing, recording together with performing than I’d hoped. But I’m 12 months into this crazy global mega-city straightaway – then familiar together with notwithstanding ever then real very new. So I’m looking frontwards to beingness to a greater extent than productive together with playing novel places alongside novel people inwards 2017.
And inwards roughly respects, the less said close 2016 the better, right?
