HOW CAN I FIND THE BEST FOREIGN EXCHANGE RATES IN BANGKOK?

It’s a must for me to find a good foreign exchange office today…But which one is better? Which one has the best rates? The owner of the hostel I stayed at gave the answer to these questions:

Our destination is “Super Rich Foreign Exchange Office”. It is the best place that gives the best rates you can find the branches in Sky metro stations.

Here is a picture that you get to see so rare but needs to be more out there…A family, travelling with their little girl. Having a kid doesn’t mean that you have to stuck at home. You can keep growing with your kid as you experience different landscapes, cultures and people while travelling. I think being open-minded is the most important thing to show to your kid. I love to see the families like that. To be able take your kids with you to travel together will help the young generation to have a high awareness.

OPEN AIR TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES?

In buses all windows are open..You may see a monk sitting next to you (if you’re a guy)…If you don’t have a problem with waiting on the same spot for a long time due to Bangkok’s famous traffic jam then you should give it a try…

Tuk tuk is a sweet vehichle which combines speed and traditionality, I love it…

WHAT MAKES BANGKOK’S STREETS UNQİUE?

You know what they say, it’s the people what makes a place beautiful. This is so true…Most of the people you see in Bangkok’s streets are the ones who haven’t lost their sincere smiles eventhough they own a little in life.

The other features that make Bangkok’s streets unique are the endless fruit and spicy food vendors…The food hipnotizes you with its colors due to incredible amount of spice…What about fruits having rainbow colors…You will find yourself in the middle of a food bazaar and another bazaar starts before the previous one ends…That’s why bazaars in Bangkok are endless…

Plus, all the interesting stuff that you see in the streets will make your day unqiue for sure.

No matter what some people say,  I love Bangkok!
