Khao Yai: A hidden gem outside Bangkok

Since I was in Thailand for almost two weeks, I looked for places where we can go to besides Bangkok. We already had Chiang Mai for a few days so I was looking for somewhere near Bangkok that we can go on a day trip to. Ayutthaya was out because I’ve recently just been there….

Bangkok Sea Life: an afternoon with your friends from the Sea

Everyone who knows me well know that I am not fond of animals. I’ve had plenty of traumatic experiences with different animals growing up which eventually led to a fear of them. Yes, they are cute but no, I will not touch them or interact with them. Despite that fear with animals, I love sea…

Check in Chiang Mai Day 3: Grand Canyon (Hangdong District)

For our last day we went outside the city to Hang Dong for the Chiang Mai Grand Canyon. A Thai colleague mentioned this when she visited Chiang Mai. The Grand Canyon is a manmade quarry turned water attraction. It’s 40 minutes away from our place (we were near Chiang Mai University). We hired a red…

Day 2: Chiang Rai, Golden Triangle, Karen Long Neck, and Laos

For our second day we booked a tour with Travelhub Thailand. It’s a one day tour in Chiang Rai. We’ll be seeing the White Temple, the Golden Triangle, and the Karen Long Neck village. I initially wanted to just go to Chiang Rai on our own but the logistics of everything seemed a little difficult…

Check in Chiang Mai Day 1: Doi Suthep

For our first day we went to Doi Suthep. We walked around and hired a red taxi (songthaew) who priced it at THB 600 going up and going down. I managed to consult someone how much a taxi is and I was told it will be THB 300 one way, so THB 600 is a…

3 Days & 3 Nights: Chiang Mai, Thailand

The first leg of my #ThaiMeUp trip is in Chiang Mai! Chiang Mai is located in the north of Thailand, which is an hour plane ride away or about 12-14 hours by train. I arrived in Bangkok at 8:30 in the morning in Suvarnabhumi airport. My flight is still at 4:00 in DMK so we…

Third Time’s the Charm: Thailand

In a span of two years I managed to visit Thailand three times. I really find it as one of the places that you will never get tired of visiting. My coworker said that there’s always another country you will call your second home and I think I found mine. For this year I was…

Explore Singapore: Day 2

I had a full day for day two because my flight wasn’t until 1 AM. I didn’t have a fixed itinerary and the only place I truly wanted to see was iLight which I managed to tick off my checklist yesterday. We started our day by going to the Lasalle College of Arts. I can’t…

Explore Singapore: Day 1

This year’s first international trip is Singapore! I have always wanted to visit eversince I was young. People always say that SG is one (if not the) of the cleanest and most disciplined country in the world. I was very specific with my travel dates due to a global work event that I wanted to…

Cebu’s Temple of Leah and Sirao Gardens

The only chance I get to visit Cebu is because of work and I have always told myself that I must go back here for non-work related purposes. February rolls in and my boss invited me to attend her wedding in Cebu.Β I went with my colleague and flew in Friday night. The wedding was Saturday,…

Travel Vlog: Thailand

I’ve been blogging about my Thailand trip in my previous posts. I don’t think I can put more emphasis on how much I love this country. For my second time, my friend was taking videos of our trip and I decided to do the same (although I wasn’t as successful as he was since I…
