Trees in Sukhothai


It is the hot & dry season, in the north also called the smoggy & burning season. Everything looks dry but some trees start to blossom in this time of the year and it is stunning beautiful. I love trees!

Visiting Sukhothai again

I have been many times in the Historical Park of Sukhothai (first capital city of former Siam). But it is still a lovely place to bicycle around and make photos of the ancient ruins that once  marked this remarkable city.
















Train stations in Thailand, next station Mae Klong


I love traveling by train, especially in Thailand where it is like traveling in time. It is like an open-air museum. Not only the trains itself but also the train stations. They look like they have not changed since they build the first railroad lines in Thailand in 1889.

Not a nice old station but at the end (or beginning) of a special line and with a very special attraction. Also famously known as "The Rail Road Market". See also Visiting Talat Rom Hub

This the line between Bangkok and Mae Klong that is interrupted by the Tha Chin River where you have to take the ferry to the other side. And then continue your train ride to Mae Klong.


Changing time in Bangkok

When I lived in Bangkok about 19 years ago I would not have thought to see something like this but last week when walking near Charoen Krung road in Bangkok I saw & heard this young boy playing classical music on his violin.

Yes Bangkok (and Thailand as a whole) is changing, and many times for the better.

Love in the park in Bangkok

They say "Love is in the air", well it is also in a park near BTS station Mo Chit on a hot afternoon.

Traveling over the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok


Traveling over the Chao Phraya River shows an all other side of this magnificent city. At the south side there is the harbour with floating docking-stations. And a bit up-stream the sky-line of modern Bangkok with the famous Ghost-Tower.


Pattaya by night


We had to be in Pattaya for 2 days and we did stay at "Amari Ocean Tower" along the beach road. Still love it, great rooms and best breakfast buffet in town. In the evening we had a drink at "Horizon Rooftop Bar & Restaurant" at the 34th floor of Hilton Pattaya Hotel. Great view, fantastic service and delicious cocktails. Not cheap, but highly recommended!


A bird, a breakfast


At Ibis Riverside Hotel in Bangkok even the birds are served a breakfast

New promotions of Nok Air Thailand

Booking a flight with Nok Air in Thailand?

Then be aware of the fact that recently they changed the rules of their tickets sales and some class do NOT have FREE baggage anymore. You can buy baggage up-to 24hr before leaving, but after that it costs 300 THB per kg. In that case it might be cheaper to buy an all new ticket.

Of course you can just use carry-on baggage as long as you do not have more as 7kg, your baggage is not to big and your baggage does not contain things that can not be taken as carry-on.

I assume Air Asia will be happy with this new promotion of Nok Air as now there is no reason anymore not to fly with Air Asia. So here I come Air Asia!
