Weekend in Bangkok

Sometimes you just have to get away from Taipei, and even though it’s hot and off-season Bangkok is still one of the few places on earth where I feel truly relaxed. Posts will be few, site traffic will plummet, but there are still some very cool threads going on in the blog below below and the Duck Pond above.

So what is Taipei like in late July? Going there next week for the first time since, uhhh, the mid 70s if I can recall…

Cheers

You feel relaxed? My friend- Bangkok is one of the most hectic and insane cities I’ve ever been in! What’s your secret for chilling out there?

Chaz, we’re having a typhoon today. Two words describe Taipei in July: hot and wet.

No Borders, there are many, many sides to Bangkok. It’s breathless and frantic and crazed, and then it’s tranquil and serene. It all depends on where you go and what you want your trip to be about. Bangkok has, literally, something for everyone and caters to whatever mood might be prevailaing at the moment.

Richard, you know my friend puh is gorgeous. I wish you have told me that you are going to Bangkok.

That is true….most travelers never really leave the Khao San area which I’m sure we can all agree is headache-inducing….but even still for chilling Thailand’s second city, Chiang Mai, is ideal.

Bangkok was the first place in Asia I ever saw, at the end of August in 1979. I fell instantly in love. I can’t believe I’ve never been back to Thailand, because I thought it was the most wonderful place I’d ever been to. And the only place I saw outside of Bangkok was that really tacky beach town – spacing on the name now – about an hour away from Bangkok.
