The Peacock Alley at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok has the most scrumptious afternoon tea in Bangkok. Here is my review of their festive and delicious tea set.

Above: The Okura Afternoon Delight – the classic afternoon tea served in Japanese-style wooden box at The Okura Prestige Bangkok. A real must-try. No need to wait upon the season. 😀 Strangely, but truly, a cup of tea provides an ever soothing solace unlike others. Feeling jittery and overwhelmed? Treat yourself to a good warm cup, a quiet corner, a time to ponder and reflect, and most likely, you are renewed. Emotionally, yes. But...
Planning a short trip to Bangkok? Here's a suggested itinerary of what to do, what to see, where to shop, eat and stay, so you get the best out of your trip over.
Bangkok Old Town or Rattanakosin Island is a charming area with a lot of deliciousness - from street food places to Michelin-starred restaurant.
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
A too-long stretch in hometown spurred us to look further to something exotic and beyond. Case in point is these colourful Indian sweets - and their unique cultures and traditions that have been a part of Thailand for centuries.
1823 Tea Lounge by Ronnefeldt at Gaysorn - for the first time ever - is featuring purebred Thai teas on their special, limited-time menu. But, these four specially selected teas are far from ordinary, they are parts of the ancient tea trails that draw from southern China down to northern Thailand. Some leaves are picked from tea plants as old as 800 years old.
This sweet, cold noodle is a secret recipe of a family of Talad Noi - a residential cluster south of Yaowarat. And it happens to be vegan, hence a specialty exclusively available during the Chinese Vegan Festival. But now, the descendants are bringing back this comforting and cooling bowl to the visitors of the area. Yumm.
What's better than stumbling onto something as great as a real artisanal goodie. Case in point is this delicious deep-fried dough locally known as 'Pa-Tong-Go.' While many places depend on the quick recipe using baking powder, this one still relies fresh yeast made and taken care of overnight. The kneading and deep-frying techniques - passed along from father to son - also add to the extra crunchiness. Yummmmm!!!
