My last visit to the Land of Thousand Smiles was in 2013 for a day – as a transit stop on my way to Bhutan. I am back in the city for a reunion with old University friends.
Bangkok is an exhilarating attack on the senses – the intense humidity, fast moving tuk-tuks, aromatic spices, gleaming skyscrapers, and the seemingly peaceful boats gliding along the Chao Phraya River.
Be it street Food or Michelin restaurants, Bangkok has a lot to offer.
Bombyx is one of the restaurants by Jim Thompson (purveyor of silk products) that serves flavourful Thai dishes.
Located at the basement of Siam Paragon is Khao Dessert Cafe, serving traditional Thai desserts.
Chim by Siam Wisdom is an excellent Michelin star restaurant the offers tasting menus or ala carte dishes.
Somboon Seafood is a Michelin Plate restaurant with seven locations. Known for curried crab, definitely worthy of a visit.
Baan Kanom Thai is located in the basement street food section of the food hall serving tasty mango with sticky rice and coconut milk.
The ShangriLa Hotel Bangkok is a wonderful hotel to stay at. Very friendly and hospitable service, extensive amenities, and a very convenient location are the best attributes of the hotel.
