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!
We got lost in Bangkok’s China Town and when we were strolling in this little Soi we stumbled upon so many cool places!
Pure luck was under construction at that moment, but by only looking at the space I fell in love.
Had a lovely day visited Dries van Noten at the Fashion Museum and strolling around the city looking for cool new stores & hotspots. I often forget how great this city is!
My favourite cozy food hotspot in Antwerp. This little local place is the perfect start for you daytrip in the city. It’s located on the Vlaamse Kaai. ( Right next to the free parking area! Shhhh).
This colourfull hotspot can’t be missed as it is covered in paintball dots.. This crazy cute cafe is situated in Neukoln in Berlin and is a lovely hangout for your creatives. Be sure to check this place out when visiting Berlin..
We went on a city trip to Berlin with Amfi first year Fashion & Branding students, exploring the city and looking for fresh inspiring concepts. Berlin is so raw, diverse and real in so many ways.
