Hello Travelers,

How’s your 2018 coming along? Plans for any upcoming travels? I just got back from my trip to UAE and Africa and settling back in. I visited Thailand last year and didn’t get a chance to write a travel post on it yet. My first stop on this trip was Bangkok. So let me start by writing about it. Here is my itinerary that I followed:

Day 1

1)The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha)

Hours: 8:30 – 15:30

Wasn’t my favorite thing to do as the water was quite polluted. But I’ve heard the night cruises are a lot more fun. So look into the dinner cruises.

5) Khao San Road

Some fun places to eat, drink and get massages. It can get really crowded, so be careful with your belongings here.

Day 2

1)Floating market
