  • I didn't choose Bangkok, the city chose me, and several years in I still see Bangkok as a friendly monster of a city that has alluring beauty despite its gap-toothed smile. Anyone who has spent any time here will tell you it is a crazy, hazy place and I am fortunate enough to have a front row seat to all the tomfoolery that unfolds here on a daily basis. 

    Below are all my favourite places to visit when I clock off for the day and become another wide-eyed farang lost amongst the city streets.
