What to wear in Thailand and my attempt at fashion.

 I’m not a fashion blogger nor do I really know much about fashion,  but as most women do I like clothes and trying to look my best.  For my Thailand trip I wanted to try out taking pictures in the different outfits that I wore, which were different from the usual shorts and t-shirt that I wear when travelling. The point was trying to dress according to the place I was visiting.

Boating around Bangkok

Day 2 in Bangkok was all about temples. We started our day by taking the sky train to  “Saphan Taksin” station, from where it’s easy to get to the “Chao Phraya river” . We purchased a one day pass with “Chao Phraya express” boat.  For 150 Baht you can use the boats on this line all day , making it easy to access all the major sightseeing points.

Waking up in Bangkok

I left off my Thailand posts in Chiang Mai. This is where I spent a day with elephants, visited a beautiful temple, got an oil massage, shopped at the Sunday night market and more.
After 4 days in Chiang Mai we made our way by night train to the bustling capital of Thailand, Bangkok. When planning our Thailand trip, I was unsure about going to Bangkok.

Massages in Thailand, from oil to Thai and happy endings.

The first few days in Thailand were pretty busy, so on our last day in Chiang Mai, we decided to have a chill day since we would be taking the night train to Bangkok that evening. The best thing to do was pamper ourselves with a relaxing massage.

I had heard that Thai massages can be pretty painful, but after they are done with you ,you feel light like a feather. Well I wasn’t buying any of those stories, because in China I experienced a very painful massage and I was sore for days after it. I didn’t want to go through a similar experience again and just chose to get an oil massage, so we headed to the area were all the massage places are located. We realized prices were pretty similar , between 200 and 300 Bhat for an hour massage.

The Sunday Night Market in Chiang Mai

My Thailand trip kicked off in Chiang Mai. This city is located in Northern Thailand,  and was built in 1296. Due to its proximity to the Ping River it was of significant importance for trade between southern China and Burma. Nowadays is the second largest city in Thailand after Bangkok and number 24 on the “25 Best Destinations in the World” list by Trip Advisor (2014)
