I am fairly sure, as are the one or two commenters who aren’t knuckle-dragging troglodytes, that this video was shot in Khlong Toey. Bangkokians are the masters of creatively efficient use of space.

(Thanks to b for sending me this similar video clip.)

Thai Culture and Customer Service

There is no doubt that Thailand is one of the top holiday destinations for travellers. Thailand has some of the worlds best beaches and a melting pot of cultures all living inside Bangkok. Many companies offer trips and flights to visit the various sights and cities, and with this comes the expectation that some might not be as honest as the others.

Bangkoks Top Attractions

A recent request for top places to see in BKK got me thinking that we should really do a post on the subject. Whilst the official guide books, such as Lonely Planet and others seem to list the usual haunts, what about the not so famous places that we all love about BKK?

Bangkok Food Finder

Ok so we all know that there are some damn fine restaurants in this fair city, but how do you keep track? (besides visiting this blog). Bangkok Food Finder was created Jay Uhdinger with the problem that there exists so many choices, so many places to eat and you start to get tired with most of them and look for a new awesome place to eat.

Bangkok -How the city got its name at the first place ?

First time here and cannot really figure out what’s the best topic to start. Well , there’s no better place to start in Bangkok web blog than talking about how the city got its name at the first place.

สงกรานต์ (Songkran) reflections

The Thai New Year (Thai: สงกรานต์ Songkran) is celebrated every year on 13 April to 15 April. The most obvious celebration of Songkran is the throwing of water. People roam the streets with bowls of water, water guns or even a garden hose, and drench each other and passersby. Songkran falls in the hottest time of the year in Thailand, at the end of the dry season and with this in mind, being drenched by water wasn’t such a bad thing.

Censorship in action

The government of Thailand has stopped access to online video-sharing website This ban was implemented when Google refused to remove a video clip from the site that seemed to mock the king of Thailand.
