I have loads of post don’t have a chance to translate and update here in my blog but Facebook! I can’t wait to share all these lovely places where I went in my recent Bangkok trip. So I picked this simple short one today and think you might be interest!
Usually when I travel I love to use my google map and explore interesting or nice looking cafes around my location. This one – Fill in the Blank is one of the hidden gem which I believe not many people know about it! However it is not close to the BTS station. It is located in Sukhumvit 61 and the nearest station is Ekkamai. What I did is to get off from the closet BTS station and take uber OR you can take uber directly from your location which should save your time! Anyways, let’s see how the cafe looks like!

If you are looking for some special, comfy and economy which save some money in your pocket, then this one you should not want to miss!

Continues my last trip in Chiangmai, we went to this restaurant without any planning on our last day, just to find a place that could spend our time for the delayed flight for almost 7 hours! What a nightmare! However because of this delayed, we decided to look for some new dining place that’s close to our hotel.
We have no idea what kind of food they offer but the gorgeous building was attractive enough for me to look into their menu. There are various kinds of Thai food with reasonable prices. Just a sneak peak from the exterior you can either sit outside and inside. So let’s see how’s the interior look and feel.
We were welcomed by their staff with such a friendly smile on their face and they were so attentive. We have to sit interior as the outer seats are full. The restaurant is huge and have a very beautiful environment. There’s a cafe bar on the side and in the middle there’s a long table. I love the interior decoration and obviously this have been well designed. It is so stylish yet tradition with the leak wood Chiangmai design. The lighting of the store is very soft and made us feel so relax to spend our time for our delayed flight! Guess we found a perfect dining place. How exciting this was in such an unexpected situation!

Date back from my last trip in Chiangmai during July, this NEW chill out spot in Niman Road. It is situated in front of Eastin Tan Hotel. You might question if this is a PARK? Actually it is not really just a PARK but more than that. It includes lots of cafes and handcrafts creative stores.
The restaurants are owned by Captain Tan, who is the boss of Oishi dining group in Thailand who owned lots of restaurants. Thus you might find his statue in the entrance. The whole environment is so relax, it is not a super big place but takes only 30 minutes walk through the whole area. With lots of small lovely wall paintings along the little shops, is easy to find some nice spot for lovely shot! So let me show you how special this Park is!
It looks totally different in the day & night of this park, you will see what I mean later. Anyways, there are approximately 10 stores and a cafe located at the entrance and for sure you won’t miss out! The weather wasn’t good and is showering at that moment. We went there at 09:00 morning so seems like lots of stores have not yet open. So let me show you a few stores.
Robin & Ruth – This store sell lots of souvenirs. Includes Bags, T-shirst, post cards etc. I am not sure about the price range but I haven’t buy anything from this store as I don’t like to buy some Thailand printed products.

Sharing Happy little things is Beautiful!
As a coffee lover like me, I love wander around and look for lovely coffee shop when I arrived in a new city where I have never been.
Apart from my previous post of cafe Ristro8to, here is another place where you can spend your afternoon with such a simple yet stylish coffee shop. They severed home made pasta and is made to order. So if you are rushing to another new spot then I would not recommend you to come as they won’t serve really fast but believe slow food would results the best quality to their customers. So be patient and wait for what they serve. It sure won’t disappoint you.

After a few posts of where to eat and things to do. Today I would like to recommend the 5 MUST visit temples in Chiangmai. As an old city in Chiangmai, there are lots of temples. It’s not possible to visit all of them in a few days and guess you might not know which should be worth to visit or they might look all similar to you. I have posted a Secret Jungle Temple in Wat Pha Lat which is a little far away from the city. However the below were situated in the old city and it takes you only a few walks if you already in the city. Thus if you plan your trip in Chiangmai for only 3-4 days, it probably takes you 2 days to visit all of my recommended temples. So let me introduce the first MUST Visit Temple – Wat Lok Molee.
MUST VISIT TEMPLE #1 – Wat Lok Molee
Wat – Thai language means Temple. Wat Lok Molee is situated next to the busy street near northern Chang Phuak city gate. It was originally built in 1367 CE, the Mengrai Dynasty. Monks were used to spread their teachings in the temple and they were housed in here as well. Wat Lok Molee probably is the oldest temple in the city. The Wat is free for entry so doesn’t looks like a few temples which you have to pay. There were 2 elephants at the entrance gate, they seems like a guard to protect the Wat. The fine details of the elephant cravings was breathtaking.
When I was there it’s about 07:00 p.m and there’s no one but only myself. (well my hubby was being in foot massage as he have not interest at all!) Anyways, I enjoyed so much myself walking around this temple. The temple kept open until night and whole environment is so serene. There were 2 silver trees at entrance and believe that was like a wish tree as I found the notes on a silver leaf. I guess they wish one day the god might hear it and fulfill their needs?
Something you need to know before you step into the temple. You shall take off your shoes , and make sure you wear properly(short pants or sleeveness were not allow) and keep quiet while you were visiting in order to respect the buddha. There was huge, almost 4 ft tall gold buddha statue in the centre of the temple. The crafting was so beautiful and the whole environment was so peaceful and stunning. You can see how they respect the Buddha with such an amazing temple. Continue reading “MUST VISIT Temple in Chiang Mai – Wat Lok Molee”
