There’s so many things to do around Bangkok and you’ll never have a hard time finding a good list of what to do while visiting. But I feel like the list has never been updated and that there is too many places and things on repeat. So in this interview I’ve tried to mention some of the more hidden gems, and some places (like JJ Market) that are totally mainstream but has to be experienced! Try visiting at least 3 of this places and you’ll get a feeling of how it is to be a local in Bangkok, pretty amazing!

Have you been to any of these places?
Beautiful Wat Pho stupas
The 46 m reclining Buddha in the background, huge!
Had a full day off work yesterday so we went sightseeing around Bangkok. Wat Pho was our main stop and we had he best massage we’ve ever had in our lives there! Check out my snapchat to see how our day went: BYEA
You have no idea how happy I am about it being friday. Only 5 hours of work today. I’m definitely making myself a fatty lunch today just to celebrate. Did someone say carbonara? I think I’ll swing my the gym after work though, as I’m planning to have fun times this weekend. I’ll be at the King’s Cup Charity Elephant Polo Tournament on Saturday. I’m SO excited. Tom’s been hanging out there with his booth which is Casa Azul merged with Day Of The Dead beers. Meaning mexican drinks and food, and daytime drinking in the sun. And I’m really up for that… I love spiced up slushies. The fact that they are playing elephant polo is also pretty awesome. Elephants and monkeys are my favourite animals. The cup is held by Anantara at the river so if you’re up for some nice weekend chilling by the Chao Phraya river you better come here. I also heard that the elephants are from Surin. So they’re pretty much my brothers and sisters. 😀
Sunday will be spent at Jatujak weekend market followed by boat noodles in Victory monument. I’m aiming to get at least five down.
What are you doing this weekend?
I’ve been away from writing lately, but for those days you can follow me on snapchat or instagram. The weekend was chill. We’ve been at Ikea… one of my most favorite places in the world. Don’t ask me why…Hanging out at Tom’s restaurant Casa Azul, which has the best game setup in Bangkok, AND nachos if anyone is into that (who isn’t?!) .
I tried Muay thai with Tom at the Kru Dam gym. My shin is bruised. No kidding. It was really fun, but definitely something I need to get used to. My kicks sucks. My mom is in Thailand now, and brought me lots of yummy cheese and cold cuts from Spain, and my favourite Ajo and Perejil stocks that can be used to make the best carbonara EVER. So if you’re in the neighborhood you know where to go for eats! She’s heading to Surin to visit my grandparents first so I’ll be following her next weekend for some family times. I seriously can’t wait.
I’m missing my family so much these days and hoping my siblings will move down here someday soon. Oh, how school and work is always in the way, hehe. I’ve also started cooking at home. I’m sick of working around soi 11, there’s hardly any good food there. I’ve said to myself I won’t stress with dieting or finding a new workout program until April starts… but when I start cooking at home I get so obsessed with egg white omelets, rice and chicken, broccoli and salads haha. But… going out shopping for food also makes me go crazy over the cereals and chips on the shelves as well. But it honestly doesn’t bother me. April it is, no stress.
Love my new shoes! So plain and comfy. Been looking for these for ages!!!
Oh Tuesday again… the longest working day of the week. It actually isn’t that bad. But hard to get any extra work done when I get home at 11 in the evening. But then again, I do have the whole day for myself before work seeing I don’t start until 3, which is AWESOME. The clock is about to turn in Norway though, so It will be one hour earlier from the 25th which will be a good change.
What are you doing on this long Tuesday?
We been looking far and wide for a weekend place both we and Diego can enjoy so we were super happy to hear that D’ark welcomes you doggie with open arms. We we’re a bit sceptical, seeing this was at Emquartier, but can now comfirm this place is dog friendly for sure!
Diego turned 1 year on the 28 of February. And was stoked about all the attention he got at this place. He also loved being able to join us for Sunday lunch times!
Their homemade ice cream is super yummy. Get the pistachio flavour.❤️
Baby Diego loves french fries 😀
I love the vibe of this place and how it’s actually a proper place to chill and eat while being able to hang out with your furry friend. It’s perfect location for daytime drinking aswell, ehm, I mean a glass of wine…
Fore more information about this place, or even other places to bring your pet, go to Fetchbud.
Found an awesome new dog friendly cafe at Ozono in soi Sukhumvit 39.. It’s called Dog Rocks and is also a bike shop/showroom. The food is just alright, but the working environment is perfect. It’s so easy to get things done there, but at the same time you get to bring your little doggie to play. The owner has a playful dog that loves to roll around with Diego while we’re working. Luckily they both don’t bark, hehe. There’s also a grass area outside where you can take your canine friend for walks and to relieve itself. We all know how hard it is to find chill and dog friendly places in Bangkok this place is top grade!
Note: It’s closed on Mondays.
Anyone else having troubles with freckles in the summer?
The outside area at Ozono.
Gonna talk Diego for some walkies and get some noodles from our soi. The guy opposite of our building makes the best sen lek with chicken!! Then I’m gonna try going upstairs to the gym to do some HIT followed by tanning by the pool before…I have to go to work.
