Be careful when you visit a tea house on Soi 14, at the corner of Suhkumvit and Soi 14. I bought a tea set that had a listed price of THB600. The owner had also confirmed the price of THB600. When I received my change, the receipt issued was for THB650. I pointed the price tag on the tea set and the owner said the tag was a mistake. The owner is not honest at all.

Hello Bordeaux! Lucky you to be living in such an interesting "onion" of a city -- I love the way you have named it that and I definitely agree :) I wish I had more time to explore the onion myself! I can now visit you blog though to get my fill! :)

Hi Nens! Thanks! :) Coming from a great photographer like you that means a lot...especially since I work with an "antique" digital point-and-shoot (when I travel)! Guess what...I have never been to Divisoria or 168...Yikes! More places you will have to give me the "tour" of please (like Cash & Carry...hahaha!) :) I think I was really in a Zen-shopping mood in Chatuchak...

Hi Em Dy! Yes, probably...I think a lot of these tours are standard :) Since it was November it was a little less hot :) I enjoyed Suan Lum too!

Hi Tanna! Thanks :) When I visit a new place I like to take in as much as I can...food, sights, shopping, people watching, etc, etc, etc...as much as time and wallet will allow ;)



Certainly your trip was filled with sights sounds ...

2007-11-25T01:44:00.000+08:00

Certainly your trip was filled with sights sounds and shopping extravaganza. Travel should take you away and give you new experience. You certainly got that! Great photos again Joey! Thanks.

2007-11-23T15:01:00.000+08:00

Looks like we booked the same tour. I remember walking in Ayutthaya under the hot sun (it was May), being overwhelmed with history, relaxing onboard the cruise with all that food.

We didn't go to Chatuchak even if it's listed in the 1000 places to go before you die. Settled for Suan Lum. Great finds. Haggling was the rule.



I love your photos of Ayuthaya. I love that place!...

2007-11-23T10:53:00.000+08:00

I love your photos of Ayuthaya. I love that place!! And your post about the massage cracked me up again. I don't recall any cracking action during my Thai massage. I just remember being in pure bliss and having the best massage I've ever had in my life (and I have them pretty often). I swear I felt like a new woman when I walked out of that place. :)

I agree, Chatuchak is less stressful than Divisoria or 168 or other markets in other countries. Waiting now for the HK posts! :)

2007-11-22T20:33:00.000+08:00

Bangkok is an incredible city. I've often traveled here before and now I'm living in 'the giant mango'. Although I prefer onion, there are just so many layers and every week we still find new areas to explore and food to try. I'm glad you enjoyed your time here so much.

2007-11-22T18:50:00.000+08:00

Hi Jmom! The food posts came before this...check 2 posts back :)

Hi Oggi! I know there are a few places that do Thai massage here too...hmmm, must check that out :) Hong Kong was a blast albeit a short one...I'll post my highlights as soon as I can!

Thanks Dee! Let me know if you need more info...just email me anytime and I'll do my best! :)

Hi Bee! Birds of a feather! :)

Hi Paz! Thanks :) Glad you liked it!

Hi Candishhh! Me too!!! Looks like you did a lot too while you were there…I’m still going through your posts :)

Hi Dhanggit! It’s a famous photo opp I think :) I enjoyed Ayutthaya too…this is the last of Bangkok, sorry! But a bit of Hong Kong to follow :)



Finally we have the continuation of this trip LOL!...

2007-11-22T18:46:00.000+08:00

Finally we have the continuation of this trip LOL!! I remember i took the same photo of buddha trapped in the giant root of a tree :-) great photos as usual...speaking of ayutthaya i loved this place really amazing... i hope there will be part three of this travel posts..:-)

I miss Bangkok! I can't wait to go back! It seems like there are still so many places to go!!

Darn it!

2007-11-22T05:30:00.000+08:00

Bangkok is such a wonderful place for sightseeing, shopping, and eating. There is Thai massage shop in my town, I might try it one of these days.
We lived in Hong Kong for more than 3 years and I can't wait to read your post!:)

2007-11-22T05:06:00.000+08:00

hi Jo, I've enjoyed reading your travelog :) Now get to the food already!

That massage sounds wonderful! I'm all for the deep tissue and cracking. Bring it on! Gosh, I miss a good massage.

2007-11-21T23:43:00.000+08:00

Hi Manggy! I'm glad you enjoyed the article and thank you for the compliment :) Haha! My intent was to show people that anyone can cook...and to push you to post about your Europe trip, hehehe ;) Please do! (and keep checking the web for promo fares in and around Asia...lots of good deals out there nowadays)

Hi M! Sounds heavenly! I'm sure mine was removing bad juju because she was so charming...I
think she was telling me I looked young for my age...or maybe I was reading to much into it? ;) Hahahaha!

Hi Roda! It is a great place to visit...glad I got you daydreaming :) So many places I want to see, but so little time (and skinny wallet!) :)

Hi P! Just as long as you were in a nice shopping-Zen place, purchase not necessary :)

2007-11-21T23:02:00.000+08:00

I remember wandering around Suan Lum for hours - and enjoying it immensely - then coming back to the hotel without buying anything. But it was all good.

Your post is making me daydream... Such a wonderful place to visit! Thanks for sharing!

2007-11-21T16:14:00.000+08:00

Markets and Massages! A good friend who lives in Bkk introduced me to a sort of seedy looking massage place there, but external looks hid an amazing 2 hour experience, lots of stretching, pressure points, not too many crackings. But yes, the perennial chatter of the masseussessss (heehee) yakking away, not sure what kind of mantra they are saying, maybe removing bad juju while they are working on the muscles.

2007-11-21T16:07:00.000+08:00

(accidentally posted this in part one!)

That is awesome. Thanks for sharing! I hope to go one day when/if I have deep pockets.

I bought Yummy and read your article. It was interesting and if your intent was to make us all jealous, mission accomplished! I haven't yet documented my Europe trip from the Dark Ages in my blog but I'm starting to feel itchy again :) Thank you for your well-written article. It was a welcome break from the cute-mommy-oriented articles scattered throughout. Granted, that's majority of their readership, but I'm soo tired of Summit Media forcing their readers into a box, it's so unimaginative and stifling.) - ay, na-hurt? hehe.

2007-11-21T13:17:00.000+08:00

Hi Katiez! Hehe...you only live once and aside from that neck-crack the stretching parts were bliss :)

Hi Freya and Paul! So happy to see you guys up and about :) Thanks for stopping by and glad you enjoyed the post :)

Hi Katrina! I don't like the cracking here either...even if it's just fingers and toes. Hmmm, wonder where F went...should have asked him for a recommendation too! I think I was ready for Chatuchak because I was in a market frame of mind...which is probably why I wasn't ready for MBK! Missed the Roti Sai Mai :( Sigh...more for next time!

Hi Veron! Truly such a rich history...and well documented too. Haha! I was saying little prayers during the neck-crack...it was really out of the moives! :) We also had a fantastic Peking Duck in HK...hope to post about it soon!

Hi Helene! I'm happy you enjoyed the post! :)

2007-11-21T02:26:00.000+08:00

In the ruins there is so much history. Poor decapitated budhhas. But I love your story of your massage. I am apprehensive too and would prefer gentle handling- hearing my neck crack would freak me out to no end. You are one brave soul. Well , cannot wait to hear about Hong Kong - I had the most amazing peking duck over there.

2007-11-21T02:12:00.000+08:00

I don't remember any cracking when I got a massage there, but there was definitely lots of stretching. I liked it, but I've had better massages here. However, F went back and got another type of massage with my friend's favorite masseuse, and he said it was "the best 1 & 1/2 hour massage money can buy."

I agree -- I didn't find Chatuchak at all as stressful as people say. Divisoria is more chaotic. I reallyi enjoyed that market; we were there for the whole day!

I guess since you didn't mention it, you didn't come upon Roti Sai Mai in Ayutthaya (or Paragon food court) either. Sayang, I don't know anyone who can relate to my love for this sweet snack! ;-)

2007-11-21T00:29:00.000+08:00

Beautiful article! I love the idea of the massage but I'll give the cracking a miss! Great photography!
