Banking on Bangkok

Known to many as the “Sin City” of Asia, Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand and one of the most congested, at least traffic-wise, cities in the world, is a very popular tourist destination. Home to the Giant Reclining Buddha,  Big Buddha, kickboxing stadiums where the biggest Muay Thai fights happen, and an infinite supply of street food, it was visited by 39.8 million foreign tourists last year alone.

Here are a few cozy yet trendy places that you can stay in for a reasonable price:

So you are thinking about travelling to Thailand and are wondering where to go besides Bangkok? You can’t overlook Phuket, and its main town- Patong. Here you will find great hotels such as the Phoenix Grand Patong, with amazing food which will make you forget those seafood buffets in Bangkok in no time. We will tell you below some of the essentials you need to know about Patong and the best beaches in Phuket.

Starting with the famous beaches in Phuket- Karon Beach is quite close to Patong itself and it is highly recommended by visitors. It has quite a unique view and a lovely calm and clean water overlooking the Andaman sea. If you check it out you will see it is full of resorts lining the shore- this is an alternative area to consider staying at as it is still quite popular and close enough to most of the attractions that you will find in Phuket. One of the highlights of the area is the Karon temple which is quite popular with visitors.

Another one of the amazing beaches that you cannot miss out on in Phuket is Kalim beach. Just like Karon, it also has amazing views and clean water and best of all, it has great street food near the beach with very good prices. This beach is quite calm without too many visitors so it is a great setting for taking photos of the sunset. The high tides that you can see there are quite incredible too.

Speaking of Patong itself, it is pretty much the heart of the nightlife in Phuket, which is mostly located in Bangla Road. If you come here you will find a never-ending street with bars that are always animated with tourists from all over the world, plus some nightclubs and many nice restaurants with incredible Thai food.

We certainly hope you join us for the fun here in Phuket!

Getting to Know a Tailor in Asok Thanks to Enzostevia

As I was walking around the city, I saw a spectacular jacket in a shop window. I entered the boutique of a tailor in Asok. I made a new friend! When I talked about my eating habits, he told me about the best buffet in Bangkok. I prefer to replace sugar with the best stevia powder or with the best caramel stevia drop product I can get. I smiled and took my enzostevia out of my backpack to let him taste how good it is.

If it seems strange to you that I travel with stevia in my backpack, it is because enzostevia comes in travel size packages. To better enjoy the dishes and drinks of the restaurants that I frequent while moving from city to city, I noticed that having my sweetener reserve is pretty useful. I have always found salt in abundance whenever I went, but little sugar, and far fewer substitutes for sugar.

I prefer a healthier option. In the case of my best caramel stevia drop bottle, it mixes my taste with the health benefits of stevia. That caramel tinge has bewitched me since the first time I tried it. I tried several products before finding this one, so I am happy to be able to always carry some with me. You can learn more about it on amazon.

That tailor in Asok (ST. Marco Tailor) is a diabetic person. He told me how much he loved Thai cuisine, especially bittersweet foods. He informed me about the traditional dishes he prefers. But he had to change most of the recipes in his kitchen. His problem forces him to try unusual combinations, especially using less known spices.

When I asked him how he manages to go out to eat, he admitted it was a problem. He had solved it by finding a restaurant specializing in healthy and balanced dishes. He gave me an address and added that when that restaurant makes a buffet, it is the best buffet in Bangkok.
