Lopburi, Thailand – Welcome To The Monkey City

Lopburi, Thailand

If you are planning to visit Autthaya, you should hop on the train after and make one more stop in this small city near by. Lopburi is an ancient capital and actually one of the oldest towns in Thailand. It’s history going back more than 1000 years back. However nowadays it’s mostly known for a bit different reason than in the history. Lopburi is popular among the travellers because of the cheeky little monkeys sharing the city with humans.

What To Do In Bangkok

Jim Thompson's House, Bangkok, Thailand

Don’t get scared away when arriving to Bangkok for the first time. Yes, this city can be a bit overwhelming at the beginning. It’s full of people and even fuller of vehicles of all sorts. There are lots of new smells and flavours, not appealing to everyone at the commencement of the holidays. But if you give it more time, before quickly “escaping” to the islands, you will find yourself in a place that offers so much more than that.

Tom Kha Gai (Thai Chicken Soup With Coconut Milk)

I always loved to try new meals and ingredients when possible. But it wasn’t so easy at all the times. Just so you know, I am from a small Czech town with 7000 residents, where the new is not accepted so easily sometimes.

Bangkok, Thailand – What To Expect

Bangkok view

Bangkok. You will most likely love it or you will hate it. There are no more feelings than that for most travellers. Many people told me not to worry about Bangkok when travelling to Thailand and don’t spend too much time there because I won’t like it, as it is busy and chaotic, bustling with people, full of smells and the traffic there is never ending. And they were right about it. Except one fact. I loved it!

Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun – Enjoying Life in the Austrian Mountains

Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun, Austria

Many of the mountain resorts these days offer much more than skiing/snowboarding. And Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun we’ve currently visited is definitely one of them. Everyday, every season they offer comprehensive services for demanding customers. Ready for glacier skiing? Or having a drink in an ice igloo? Maybe you prefer to relax in a wellness with a stunning view? Bathing in salty water under the stars? And what about exploring the beauty of the mountains from above in a balloon?
