Recently, I found myself going back to Bangkok Old Town, or the Rattanakosin Island, a lot. I think this is because I have come full circle, and my accumulative readings brought new lights to things I grew up with. So, here I am, trying to get things nice and easy for fellow travellers who are visiting Bangkok, Thailand. Hope you have fun and get the most out of your days here in town. :D
It is always a blessing for us to be able to roam our own country for something extraordinary.

Meet one of the most deceptively simple desserts in the Thai traditional repertoire - Kanom Tom, or a type of Thai sweet dumpling. Like a hidden gem, a good, really delicious Kanom Tom has become harder to find even in the Kingdom.
The 1823 Tea Lounge by Ronnefeldt at Gaysorn Village in Bangkok is the world's one-and-only teahouse by Ronnefeldt.

The Peacock Alley of the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok - named after the lobby-floor corridor of the original Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City, which opened in 1897, is a place to gather, sit and talk. Now their newly-launched Summertime Afternoon Tea makes all occasions even creamy and scrumptious. Introduced along with the Milan-born executive pastry chef Andrea Noli, this indulgence highlights the bright tastes of Thai fruits.
What to eat in Bangkok? Or, more likely, what best to eat? Where to go for the best local food? And what would be the most real, authentic, traditional original recipes of the Thai, Bangkok, local cuisines? These can be the questions of any visitors, foodie or not, heading their ways towards Bangkok. As a proud native of Bangkok (born and bred, no less), and a self-proclaimed foodie, I am here to help. :D
