Go Bangkok 2 (December 2013)

Go Bangkok 2 (December 2013)This was the third trip to Thailand in this year, 2013. I’ve travelled to Haytai in April for Songkran and to Bangkok in May for family trip. In the last month of 2013, I went to Bangkok again, solo. It was just a 4 days 3 nights short trip, but I’d managed to visit to Kanchanaburi, west of Bangkok (GPS code: 14.041735, 99.503903), and stepped on the famous River Kwai Bridge. I did go around the town and also somewhere further out by the motorbike that I rented from the local. It was a very special experiences to me and I was freaking excited to ride along the random roads and discover new places. I’ve planned to visit Kanchanaburi again in coming May and continue my exploration over there. Stay tuned for new update from me. =]

It was part of the Thailand-Burma Death Railway and one of the significant historical bridge in the railway system of Thailand. It has been bombed down by the British Forces and subsequently rebuilt it into iron and concrete bridge.

IMG_6657 IMG_6701IMG_6739来到陌生的咖啡厅通常我第一次都会先点杯Americano来尝一尝,因为如果一杯最简单的美式咖啡都不好喝的话,其他的不用多说。很幸运的,这杯咖啡从端上桌子的那一刻起,它香味扑鼻,牢牢的抓住了我的味蕾,然后我眉头一皱,发现原来还没有加糖(旁边透明的糖浆)。真是笨蛋一个!不过,超苦的咖啡在稍微回甘时,满口都是浓浓的咖啡香味,久久不能散去。 IMG_6651 2 IMG_6677There is a sheep farm just behind the coffee house.

IMG_6954I just realised that actually Siamese are super patriotic citizens because every evening their radio broadcast the national song at sharp 7 o’clock and they standstill to sing along loud on the street or wherever they are during that time. Full respect to their patriotism.
