Montien Riverside Hotel (Bangkok, Thailand)

This was the fourth time I’ve stayed in the city of Bangkok, but the first where I’ve been in a financial position to stay somewhere that wasn’t either a hostel or a hotel on the extremely low budget end. I found the five-star Montien Riverside Hotel via – read my guide on how to … More Montien Riverside Hotel (Bangkok, Thailand)

Chiang Rai, Thailand

Five years after planning my first trip to East Asia, today I finally made it to a place I never managed to get to. I have long been in awe of the architectural wonder that is the White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) in Chiang Rai, and to finally see it in person was an experience … More Chiang Rai, Thailand

Wellness Residence (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

During my trip to Thailand earlier this year, I spent a few days in the Northern city of Chiang Mai.

This time, however, I was travelling to relax … More Wellness Residence (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok marks the start of the second part of our trip, the more typical young backpacker destinations. We arrived at around 8am by train from Chiang Mai, and got a taxi downtown to our hotel (taxi drivers and the taxi service inside the airport try and charge a ridiculous amount – just choose a meter … More Bangkok, Thailand

Chiang Mai, Thailand

We flew with Lao airlines from Luang Prabang to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, and the flight took only an hour whereas on land the journey takes over a day, so I’d really recommend it. Getting from the airport to the hotel was also easier than any place we’ve visited so far. Directly outside the arrivals … More Chiang Mai, Thailand
