It has been more than a decade since I last visited Bangkok– and it’s time to take on the heat, the traffic and the hectic craziness. Here’s my 5 days itinerary for Bangkok.
The Hua Chang Heritage Hotel in Bangkok is a classy and stylish sanctuary in the midst of all the bustle of the city outside its walls. I call it my absolutely fantastic city find!
From high-end fine dining, to simple Thai cuisine and its variety of street food, there is something for anyone waiting to indulge in the amazing Thai cuisine. During my visit to Bangkok, I made sure I sampled a huge range of its culinary wonders.
My trip to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market– where I zoomed along the canal on a long-tailed boat, walked around the busy marketplace, and bought delicious Thai food from boats.
The Shanghai Mansion Hotel Bangkok provides a small sanctuary away from the chaos of Chinatown– and with its oriental theme, stepping into it is like being transported back in time to old world Shanghai.
Diving in the Phi Phi islands with Sea Fun Divers– only for a day, but I saw lots of turtles, and a leopard shark.
In the midst of lively Kata and its beautiful beach, lies the lovely Malisa Villa Suites Phuket. It’s luxurious, hidden, and its villas come with a private pool!
The Bell Pool Villa Resort is just a short ride away from the lovely Kamala Beach in Phuket. Getting to it is like taking a journey in search of a lost village– it is secluded, private and surrounded by nature.

Phuket was an obvious choice for a diving beginner like me as it is said to be one of the best spots for simple and easy dives. I did 7 dives with Sea Bees Diving, and explored sites like Koh Bida Nok, Shark Point, Koh Doc Mai and Racha Yai.
Burasari Phuket is a lovely boutique resort in Patong, surrounded by nature with lush trees, fragrant flowers, pretty gardens, gentle waterfalls and quaint wooden bridges.
I’ve heard many exciting stories about the huge party that happens on the island of Koh Phangan. People come from near and afar to get drunk and go crazy. Here’s an account of how I spend my time at the Full Moon party, and Koh Phangan.
