In the midst of the hot & hip neighbourhood is this cute mini hotspot Coffee N09. We enjoyed a great cup of coffee and chatted with the owner, a really cool down-to-earth guy. Also he sells really cute postcards and other small gift things.
The Chatuchak Weekend Market (or Jatujak Market; Thai: ตลาดจตุจักร) is one of the world’s largest weekend markets. divided into 27 Sections it contains more than 15,000 booths selling goods from every part of Thailand. There are local shops that sell all kinds of touristy stuff and then there are local Thai brands with sell really trendy clothes. The market is only open on weekends and is mostly for tourists. However they also sell local cheap goods so local people also like shopping here for cheap clothes or food. There are a lot of stalls with vintage clothes, really worth looking through! And also some stalls with fake designer clothes. Take your pick, it’s all there!
That time we got lost in China town in Bangkok we found so many cool places that I did a little research afterwards. I stumbled upon this place called “Cho Why”, which is a new collaborative, cross-disciplinary project space in Chinatown.The old shop houses here have sprung to life with small bars, homemade goodies, craft beer and vintage clothing. They organise all kinds of cool events, I read some articles about it on bangkok.coconuts.co, here are some pictures to give you an idea. If I’m ever in Bangkok again, I will be sure to keep an eye on their facebook page! And so should you!
Pai is a little hippie village in Northern Thailand.. It’s a 3 hour ride up the mountains before arrived in this slow-paced funny little village. “I open when I want to open”, that’s the spirit of most of the places in Pai. Many travellers stay here a little longer than they intented to, which is not surprising. The relaxed vibe, the beautiful ricefields surrounding the area, the super sweet people and all the lovely places to sleep, eat & chill….
One of my favourite places to hang out was this one:
Where to find it? Nooo idea! The place didn’t really have a name, but when you cross the big bridge in Pai, you just have to follow the road up to the temple with the white buddha. There are a lot more places like this one up that road!
