Bangkok was our first and last stop in Thailand and also my favourite place. So I thought I'll start here! I spend almost three weeks there including a photo production for blonde magazine at the end! I loved the buzz of a huge city, it was easy to get ubers, tuktuks or catch the subway. Most of all internet is super cheap and available literally everywhere! And on top of everything it's insanely cheap! Spending about 2-3 Euros on a meal and around 8-10 Euros for an hour long massage. I got so many parts of my body massaged I was basically permanently relaxed! Enjoy the photos, and I've added some tips and places that I really liked as well!

Baan Rabiang Nam / River Tree House
This place is a little outside of Bangkok but totally worth the drive. Incredibly good food and an amazng view over the river. Depending on the water level it almost feels your eating while floating on the river!
(Nonthaburi road, soi 23 | Soi Wat Khae Nok, Nonthaburi 11000, Thailand)
This place is incredible in terms of shopping! You can literally buy everything from food, fashion, accessories, plants, to even animals. I've actually only had time (and I spend 7 hours on that market) to inspect the new designers and vintage section. Really uniqe pieces, that come at a super cheap price. Definitely a must go when in Bangkok but be prepared to spend your whole day there. The market is open Saturday and Sunday!

Common Ground Tattoo
An amazing place with a few of the greatest tattooers in Thailand! Also the place has a small vinate section and amazing decor!
(300 Rimklongsatorn Rd Khwaeng Bang Rak, Khet Bang Rak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10500, Thailand)
Thipsamai Pad Thai
We had this place recommended to us and even though we had to wait for 30 minutes (because it was so crowded) it was more than worth it. We tried more Pad Thai during our trip and nothing came ever close. Also make sure to order the freshly pressed orange juice. It's incredible and actually tastes more like mandarin juice!
(313-315 Maha Chai Rd, Khwaeng Samran Rat, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand)
Long Table Resturant
This was definitely one of the more luxirious places we've been to. Date night inlcuded a five course meal, great drinks but an even greater view.
(48 Column Tower Fl.25. Soi Sukhumvit 16, Klongtoey noe, Wattana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand)
This place is a bit cheesy, but then also really awkward and fun if you're in the right mood. Since we stayed really close to the park we just had to give it a try. The dinosaurs are made of silicon and actually move their heads or tails due to little robots inside them. They also have some fun shows (mainly for kids) and the entry price (16-18 Euro) is a little over the top at least for Thai standards. But we enjoyed it none the less.
(544/1 Sukhumvit Rd, Khwaeng Khlong Tan, Khet Khlong Toei, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand)
Pak Khlong Market (Flower Market)
This place is magical, especially the later the evening gets. We strolled around and also had part of our editorial shooting take place here. The amounts of flowers and the creations people make out of those plants are simply amazing. It's super busy but the vibes are great and I shot through rolls and rolls of film for sure!
(116 Chakphet Rd, Khwaeng Wang Burapha Phirom, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand)
Teens of Thailand
The best gin tonic in town for sure! I'm a huge gin tonic fan (basically almost the only alcohol I drink) and this place was delicious. Tiny and with a door you almost miss but definitely worth it. The drinks are definitely not cheap though!
(76 ซอย นานา Khwaeng Pom Prap, Khet Pom Prap Sattru Phai, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10100, Thailand)
