Khao Yai National Park 12 - 14th September

Khao Yai National Park

Setting off from Victory monument
So, after a few weeks staying in central Bangkok I thought it was time for a change of scene. Several of my colleagues had told me about this great national park called Khao Yai only a couple of hours away from Bangkok so we decided to get some country air for the weekend.

Cup chandeliers anyone?

Modern Cafe Design

Since being in Thailand I've been into several bars and cafes where I've really been struck by the innovation and creativity of the internal decoration.

There has been a lot of variety but cup chandeliers must be the "in" thing at the moment as I've seen them (in carious configurations) in shopping malls, cinemas, small cafes and restaurants.

Either they are currently really fashionable or someone has made a job lot of them and is now selling them all over Thailand...

Glass cup Chandeliers are really popular here

Me-O and funny adverts

Me-o definitely had some memorable adverts playing on the BTS system during the morning commute

Gotta love the advertising here in Thailand, there seems to be a real focus on making adverts fun and the vast majority of them are cartoon style.

If you do a quick Google for "Funny Thailand adverts" you'll find hundreds of examples

7th October - A day out to Wat Pho

Sunday 7th October 

After waiting in a lot this weekend for the tropical storm Gaemi to come down and flood Bangkok (thankfully it didn't) I bravely ventured out to a temple that I've totally managed to miss when I went to the Grand Palace.
