    Bangkok Things to Do

    If you are fortune enough to catch the changing of the guard you are lucking. It is short but impressive. It is funny watching all the visitors jump in front of the guards as they are marching. Some not moving until the guards are right on time of them. Have to get that perfect shot I guess. But it seemed a little disrespectful. It is one thing to...

    Bangkok Things to Do

    Visited there on a group tour and enjoyed it very much. Recommend this place for a visit for any first timer. The boat ride in the river is really enjoyable with many other boats roaming around the area. Gets very crowded towards afternoon so suggest visiting the place early if possible to avoid the heat and the crowd. Things are not so cheap but...

    Pattaya Things to Do

    Looking for a good area in Pattaya for couples or families? Go to Jomtien Beach area. It's much cleaner and far less hookers and go go bars compared to the main Pattaya beach and walking street area. Always a good idea to check a room before renting it. Some might by dirty and funky odor smell from funking. Usually the cheaper they are the more...

  • Alcazar Show

    Pattaya Things to Do

    This is a must see, if you visit Pattaya. The show is done by Lady-boys, and believe me, if you didn’t know that it was done by Lady-boys you would bet your life that the show was done by women. Only on very few Lady-boys you can notice that they are not women but most of them you would swear on your life that they are women. Yes I know what you...

  • Chao Phraya River

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Bangkok Things to Do

    A short and quick trip on a boat along the canal, and we arrived at the market. We left the boat and enjoyed the show. Is it always like that? Is it revivalism for tourist amusement? No. It looks natural, and locals sell and buy indifferent to the curiosity of western people - but taking advantege of them, of course.

  • Khlongs - Canals

    Bangkok Things to Do

    The river plays a fundamental role in Bangkok's life, impossible to appreciate from the banks. You have to move a while in the water, either joining a trip in the Chao river, or hiring a river taxi, if you know where to go. The floating market is a good place that you can visit by boat, as we did.

    Bangkok Things to Do

    I usually love tours to old historical sites, temples etc. But Ayuththaya disappointed me!! I had read much in the forum and on the net regarding this. It was highly recommended by other Vt members. So we hired a car for a day trip from Bangkok for 2500 THB and took off. From the word go we were disappointed. With a bad driver who was keen on...

  • Underwater World

    Pattaya Things to Do

    Just past the Tesco Lotus on Sukhumvitt Road is the Underwater World Pattaya which we thought was well worth a look. Cost was only 320 Baht and was a good distraction for a couple of hours out of the sun. They have feeding times posted outside and it's worth taking a position early in the tunnels if you want to get some photos as the diver feeds...
