Exploring Bangkok's Chao Phraya River

Exploring Bangkok's Chao Phraya River
Destination(s): Bangkok

Remember the "muddy old river" and a reclining Buddha from the song "One Night in Bangkok"? That river's the Chao Phraya and there's much more to see along its banks than just the famously relaxed giant Buddha. Even just a water churning ride on one of the public river ferries is a worthwhile excursion or a way to skip a bit of jamming traffic when you want to get around. The attractions in this guide can be easily reached by boat and are either right on the river or a short walk away from a pier. The list starts south at Central Pier (under Saphan Taksin BTS SkyTrain station) and moves north. Happy sailing! read more about Exploring Bangkok's Chao Phraya River... Read More

Top 10 Restaurants in Thailand

Top 10 Restaurants in Thailand
Destination(s): Chiang Mai

There's no place in the world where Thai cuisine tasted better than in Thailand, so make sure you take advantage of the fresh, perfectly prepared Thai dishes while you're there. Restaurant owners have thought of everything and they offer English menus with pictures in almost every location, not to mention that some of the settings themselves are enough to feed your appetite for beauty and uniqueness.

Our strong suggestion is that you try some vegetarian places even if you consider yourself a serious meat eater, as you'll be surprised of the creativity and tasted some chefs manage to handle. Khun Churn Thai Vegetarian Restaurant is one of the best, but there's also Aum Vegetarian Restaurant. However, if you don't want to give up on the meat (or at least on some fresh seafood) make sure you reserve a table at Acqua Restaurant or at the popular Suda. For the best views go at The Deck, but make sure you actually order something instead of bothering the diners exclusively for the photo opportunity. read more about Top 10 Restaurants in Thailand...
