5 Things You Must Do in Bangkok

The first leg of my trip was Bangkok for two nights. I then went on to Siem Reap, Cambodia, which was a quick (1.5 hr) flight on the way to my final destination, Krabi. If you’re been following my blog, you know that I always recommend hitting up two close-by destinations per a trip to maximize those vacation days. I love a city/beach combo, but this trip was even better- city/historic landmark/beach combo. Subscribe to my blog to get the full itinerary.
Let’s start with Bangkok:
🗝 Tip: You will see signs everywhere stating that Buddha is a religion/religious deity and not an emblem to put on a shirt or trinket for your souvenir.

The World’s Best Infinity Pool is in Bangkok: Okura Prestige Review

Okura Prestige Bangkok Infinity Pool

I finally hit up one of my bucket list destinations, Thailand, and it was everything. My trip was three nights in Bangkok, two nights in Siem Reap (Cambodia) & four nights in Krabi. I stayed at the Okura Prestige in Bangkok, and it was amazing. The price was very reasonable- I paid less than half what it costs in a major, US city for a 5-star hotel.

But, if you didn’t, that would be a huge mistake, because Bali has so much more to offer than just beaches & lagoon pools. See my recommendations below, but there was so much that I didn’t get to do.  And of course, resorts that I didn’t get to stay at like this jungle paradise- Hanging Gardens of Bali. I guess I need to plan another trip to Bali…
🗝 Tip: Hiring a private driver is very inexpensive in Bali.

Welcome to Paradise: St. Regis Bali Resort Review

After the hustle & bustle of a big city, I crave a tropical beach. So, to make the most of my flight half-way around the world to Sydney, I then took a relatively short flight to Bali (6.5 hrs). I spent 5 nights at the stunning St. Regis Bali Resort in Nusa Dua.  From cabanas by the pool & daybeds on the beach to impeccable butler service & relatively cheap, 5-star cuisine (thank you foreign exchange rate) this is my favorite resort thus far.
The warm hospitality of the Balinese people, in general, is something to note, but the perks of the St.
