The Thai capital is one of my favourite places to visit. You get delicious food, amazing spas at every corner, and the shopping is great, too. On top of that, if you’re a fan of Muay Thai like I am, there are lots of gyms in the city (and beyond) to check out.
I really enjoyed my stay at Shama Lakeview Asoke Bangkok, a serviced apartment located just 10 minutes by foot from Asoke BTS station. Bangkok city is easy to navigate via the BTS and MRT systems, which are similar to our MRT system in Singapore. And you get to avoid the infamous Bangkok traffic!
The apartment was clean and spacious, and the service staff hospitable and professional. Our stay was faultless – I loved how you can get your laundry done the night before you leave, so you check out with clean clothes. I think this option would be perfect for those travelling with kids!
There are a few things I need to accomplish during any trip to Bangkok: check out a new café, snack on street food … and visit a Muay Thai gym! Recently, I visited the popular Roast café (Thonglor branch) for brunch with my friends. While it was on the pricier side, the food was really good. In fact, Bangkok is a must-visit for café lovers, and the brunch scene is booming.
