Oh hello August…
How many days left til my departure to Australia ? Can't wait to pack, check in the airport, maybe one or two cups of green tea latte, blogging a bit, Kuala Lumpur for one night, then sit on a plane again for a few hours to Sydney. Well, still a long journey to go, but it's going to be a good break early winter holidays. Feel free to drop me a message if you have some recommendations where to go and eat, things to experience in Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra.
Meanwhile, I'm so happy starting from today I'll be contributing for Travelers Daily . A great travel website, especially for women out there, we encourage you to book flight tickets and travel the world. It's amazing how new opportunities keep coming since last September I started my own travel blog, it's just like bringing you all with me in my suitcase, going to places I've never been before. And speaking about traveling to new places, so much excitement to see new people, culture, languages, eat the local food, even get to try what locals do…something unique, unusual…Imagine how your trip can be even more interesting when you can get your own 'local tour guide', not those tourist guides from travel agents, but local people who actually will get you with them to experience the real things, without having to pay a lot of course. Thank to creative and amazing team from WithLocals that will bring a new way of traveling. WithLocals connects travelers with locals through food and experiences, stay tuned and subscribe for the first launch in September !
Now back in Bangkok, to continue my previous post about Wat Pho & Wat Arun, here's some photos I took from a half day tour to Grand Palace. Like what everyone else will recommend you, Grand Palace is a must visit when in Bangkok. It's all about tourists, elementary school kids on study tour, gold and blue details.
Chao Phraya Express Boat ( 40 THB / single trip ) from Saphan Taksin Pier / Saphan Taksin BTS is a great transportation option you can take to Tha Tien Pier, where from there you can easily find Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun.
The admission fee to Grand Palace is 500 THB, while sarong is available for rental with deposit of 200 THB.
