Thai Language – Part 1: Basic Rules & FAQ’s

When visiting any foreign country where English is not the primary language, it’s always good to know some phrases in the local language. This shows that you put in the time beforehand to  connect with them. When training Muay Thai in Thailand, most people you encounter are not going to speak English well. You might meet one or two token people at the gym that have worked overseas and/or had better education opportunities that can communicate with you proficiently. Chances are,

Day Trip – Koh Larn for 620 Baht / ~$18 USD

Pattaya itself is just alright for tourist purposes, in my opinion. Many call Pattaya the Las Vegas of Thailand due to many people making their way here to engage in the sex scene. Like with almost any place, you

Dessert @ May Veggie Home

May Veggie Home had been in my mental bookmark list of places to try for almost as long as I’ve been in Bangkok. But I had been in Bangkok for over six months before visiting – what on earth took me so long?

And anyone who knows me knows I love to eat and try out new places. I hope whoever is reading can find this series useful and
