The best hostel in Bangkok: Mile Map

The best hostel in Bangkok: Mile Map

You know how I like to go on about hating hostels so much, complaining about people having sex in the dorm room, and people looking at me like I’m an alien for going to bed at 10pm? Well, the truth is that I haven’t hated absolutely every hostel I have stayed in, and there was...
My first visit to a gay sauna in Bangkok. And then my second.

My first visit to a gay sauna in Bangkok. And then my second.

One of the greatest things about travel is that it enables you to step outside of your normal patterns of behaviour and do things that you wouldn’t normally do. When everything is so different around you, when unfamiliarity rules the day, you have no choice but to act a little differently yourself. For some people,...
The Khao San Road hating snobs can do one.

The Khao San Road hating snobs can do one.

Khao San Road – three words that inspire the fiercest reactions in people. Before I left London for Bangkok, I had read a decent number of blogs that pretty much only had bad things to say about this infamous road in Thailand’s capital city. I was so frightened by this unanimous dislike of the street...
Returning to Bangkok and pleading the case for city life.

Returning to Bangkok and pleading the case for city life.

I’ve just spent the last two weeks on the beaches of Thailand in Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. If my posts about these places have been thin on the ground, it’s because I really don’t have all that much to say about them. The beaches were nice, the food was nice, the people were nice,...

Khlong Lat Mayom: Floating market realness.

  Before visiting Bangkok, I had of course seen plenty of the popular images of the city’s bustling floating markets, with small boats crowded into canals selling all kinds of Thai food as well as other local goods to Thai people as well as tourists. But for a boy from London, where you will find...
Lumphini Park, Bangkok: A green space Leslie Knope would be proud of.

Lumphini Park, Bangkok: A green space Leslie Knope would be proud of.

Before arriving in Bangkok, I’d read many online articles and blog posts suggesting that the city can be difficult to get along with, that for a decent proportion of people the city is just too crazy to warrant spending more than a couple of days within its walls. As a big time stan for cities,...
Curiosity got the better of me - watching a gay sex show in Bangkok.

Curiosity got the better of me – watching a gay sex show in Bangkok.

  Y’know how just a matter of days ago I wrote a post about the gay scene in Silom, Bangkok, but neglected to write about the seedier massage and sex show joints because in my own words “that business is not for me”. Well scrap that – just a few days after writing those words,...
My first night out in Bangkok - the gay bars of Silom.

My first night out in Bangkok – the gay bars of Silom.

After all of the scrimping and saving throughout 2012, I am now finally on my trip, and gagging at the fish sauce smell that lingers on every street in this glorious city: Bangkok. As a massive fan of city life, Bangkok is actually one of the destinations that I was most excited about visiting. The...
