A bicycle ride on Ko Kret

We chose to visit somewhere different today 
- so we drove to Pak Ret and Wat Sanam Nuea.

The Suan Pakkad Palace

The Suan Pakkad Palace is somewhere which I came across when I was waiting for the results of a blood test from Phyathai Hospital - happy not to have Leprosy and Elephantiasis.

As I wandered in I was taken by how there was nothing there to tell me what was here - I asked the staff at the front and they shrugged their shoulders as if they were unable to do anything about it!

Paying my money as a farang (100 Baht) I walked in to the museum (with my free fan) - and it was amazing there was so much to see in here - why was this not more popular - looking at the website I was astounded at the amount of Historical Thai Culture was in here but so little information available...

8 Thai Houses

Ban Chieng artifacts 

The Marsi Gallery

The Lacquer Pavilion


The Royal Barge

would have liked a coffee shop in the gardens but I could not have everything - worth a visit if you are in the area.


Nai Lert Park Heritage Home

I have visited Nai Lert Park Heritage home for a number of reasons - predominantly though it was for a coffee at Lady L.

But the Nai Lert Flower and Garden show was something quite memorable. 

Without the show and the gardens it is certainly an oasis to visit in the heart of a busy Bangkok - the gardens are quite lovely.

However it does seem to be popular for people to stage their wedding parties here - so sometimes it was busy.

But always time for a coffee.


Top things to do in Phuket

There are a lot more than this to do in Phuket - but a good start.

Kor Ra Kang

Kor Ra Kang is a cafe I came across when I was on a Walk in Bangkok.

Wonderfully cold and had a great view of Wat Thepthidaram - also worth a visit.

The cafe was pretty cool and upstairs seemed to be a gathering place for the school children

there is a large roti menu...

But I had the green curry

The food was certainly for Thai people and was great - very spicy and the air-conditioning was great.
