Are you looking for the ultimate shopping experience in Bangkok? Then you have to visit Chatuchak Market! In Bangkok you will find bargains for clothes and souvenirs at almost every corner, but nothing beats the experience of spending a day at Chatuchak Market!
The Memory at On On is located in the Old Town, the cultural heart of Phuket City. Although it has never been a real colony, the portuguese once had a strong commercial bond with Phuket. Also influenced by numerous Chinese immigrants, the Old Town is full of sino-portuguese colonial architecture – a rare mixture. If you stay at the Memory, you will have everything nearby – and if you’re lucky, you can enjoy the night street food markt right around the corner on the main street, which takes place on weekends.
If you are going to Thailand, you should definitely think about a short visit to the North of the country. Sure, island hopping in Southern Thailand is fun and who doesn’t like white sand beaches anyway? But Thailand has more to offer!
So I stranded in Phuket Old town last October at the wonderful The Memory at On On Hotel. After a long day of travelling and endless discussions with cab drivers over way too overpriced fares I wasn’t in the mood for anything at all. But, as usual, when I’m having a hard time on the road, the next surprise is just around the corner.
When I landed at Koh Samui airport I suddenly remembered: I always loved the atmosphere at airports since I was a little girl. No wonder I ended up in the airline industry.
When it comes to hotels I’m not a big fan of hotel chains. Not that I don’t appreciate the ameneties of a bigger hotel, but in the end it still reminds me of work, as we as crews always stay there. In my vacation, I rather try to seek the unusual. And that how I stranded one day at The Memory at On On in Phuket.
Before I first came there, I’d never had the idea to do a cooking class in Thailand. Too expensive, I thought, and probably only interesting for ambitious chefs. But when I got there I realized: You can book a cooking course almost everywhere in Thailand and it’s kind of a Must-Do for any visitor. They are not that expensive and considering that you get to eat what you’re cooking during the day it’s a real bargain. And fun is guaranteed! See where to attend a cooking class in Chiang Mai!
