Have you been to Bangkok? If not this post is for you. Even if you have been there, I am sure you didn’t know all of these. You can read this to know some more.
1) Though most Bangkok canals have been lost to road-building, boating is often considered as the most rewarding city experience maneuvering through the ‘Venice of the East’. Khlongs still thread through the Thonburi west bank and branch into the plantations of Nonthaburi.

I hope you remember me. We have travelled together so many times in the past. Remember the first time we travelled from Mumbai to Kuala Lumpur? I remember it as if it were yesterday. It was Air Asia’s very first flight from Mumbai.
I was bowled over by the service and quality of the aircraft. My love for you grew with time and it can be seen by the fact that I have a pictorial link of you on the sidebar of my blog since that day. Earlier it was …

Not that I don’t want to go there, it’s a beautiful place and the capital of Thailand. There are several Mumbai Bangkok flights which can take me directly to the City of Angels. Somehow it was always missed out from my plan which most of the time is impromptu.

Another year has passed and it’s time to look back and take stock, time to update the set of to-dos, time to see how was the year 2012 for me in terms of travel and otherwise.

I have been to these parts so many times but to this particular city, never. Did I have chance of visiting this place? Well.. one must make their chances. I could have planned my itinerary differently. The fact is I have not been to Bangkok ever.
