Bangkok… my home away from home

Part 1 of 4

Bangkok… hot, humid, crowded (over 8 million people!) & snarling traffic sprinkled with the occasional massive floodings and political chaos. It smells, tastes and feels like home. What an amazing city it is!

This past August I had a chance to spend some time in Thailand where I was in Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Chiang Mai.

I decided to share my trip here with travel tips from my old home country. I’ll break down the photos into several chapters: Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Chiang Mai, and of course the all important food chapter.

No you won’t find the usual travel tips you find elsewhere. No touristy places, just common sense everyday observations and tips you won’t find in the usual guidebooks. So sit back and enjoy the show. Click on the images for the captions and to enlarge

  1. What a treat Steven. Thanks for sharing. These images made me feel like, a trip to this exciting and cultural melting pot called Thailand, is over due. I remembered back in 1986, I was half way up Wat Arun over looking the Palace, and some long speed boats jetting along the river. I paid 25 cents to have an albino Burmese python around my neck and take a picture then. In retrospect, how silly that was. I can’t wait to see your other photos from Ayutthaya and Chiang Mai. Happy New Year. john
