Bangkok, Thailand: love it or hate it! It’s one of the best cities in the world, but to say this it took me almost 8 months of living in Bangkok. On my first trip to Bangkok, I simply hated it! I hated it with all my soul… But then, after doing some research and meeting local friends I finally learned to enjoy the city, and I also learned how to find cool things to do in Bangkok, awesome places, and unique experiences that only this great city can offer...

I’ve lived in Bangkok since 2010, I’ve done the standard 3 day Bangkok itinerary, I’ve done luxury Bangkok staycations, and I’ve done every tourist thing from day-trips to Ayutthaya, Bangkok’s floating market, and that railway market place where the train comes through the market! And I’ve been on both sides of Bangkok’s price point. From a broke backpacker trying to find the cheapest drinks on Khao San Road (I still do that sometimes, to be honest!) to a successful blogger where I just want a night spent in the best clubs in Bangkok. So after 10 years of ‘research’, finally I feel qualified to give you guys a list of Bangkok’s best clubs, depending what you’re after.

One thing to remember though folks, especially for travelers to Bangkok. Bangkok is a booming international city, and although there is a ‘travel’ vibe to Bangkok, the clubs are awesome here. And that means similar prices to what you know at home and similar dress codes. No flip-flops, vests or shorts! There are places for that too, I’ve added that in the cheaper section at the bottom.

We went on a tuk-tuk tour in Bangkok a few years ago and I remember one lady tourist who refused to touch any of the Thai street food dishes given to her. The street food in Bangkok is legendary, so much so that CNN once declared it the best city in the world for street food. If you don’t eat street food in Bangkok, then why even go?!

Just kidding. There are many reasons to love and visit Bangkok, but you can’t deny that street food – and Thai food in general – is one of the biggest. It’s personally my favorite thing about Bangkok and the main reason why we decided to recently stay there for a month – to eat as much Thai street food as we could and write this guide.

If you love Thai cuisine and street food as much as we do, then this article on the best street food vendors in Bangkok will be very useful to you.

Bangkok is the capital and the commercial, economic, and political center of Thailand. The name Bangkok is an exonym, something that foreigners use. Thais call it Krung Thep (meaning City of Angels), short for its official name Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, which is also a shortened version of its full, ceremonial name: Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit.

At first glance, Bangkok appears as your typical highly-urbanized metropolis, but a closer look reveals it remains very much in touch with its past. The city’s roots as the capital can be traced back to 1782, when King Rama I, after the fall of Ayutthaya in 1767, ordered the people to move south and establish a new center at a more militarily strategic location along the Chao Phraya River. Many of Bangkok’s most visited attractions today were built under King Rama I, including the Grand Palace complex and the other temples that will be discussed in the guide.

Here are a few more facts you need to know:

- Language: Thai. For newly exposed non-native speakers, it can be quite intimidating, especially its lengthy words. It’s also a tonal language, i.e. the meaning changes with the tone. But many road and establishment signs are also written in Latin alphabet. English isn’t normally spoken. You’ll encounter taxi drivers and vendors who cannot speak English. But most younger locals can. And what the Thais lack in English fluency, they make up for with their friendly attitude toward tourists.
- Timezone: UTC+07:00 (ICT – Indochina Time), year round. No daylight saving time observed. Same time zone as Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. Thailand, in general, is one hour behind the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia.
- Currency: Thai Baht (THB, ฿). TTHB100 is roughly USD 2.89, EUR 2.72, SGD 3.9, PHP 161 (as of December 2022).
- Modes of payment: Cash. Although some restaurants and hotels accept credit cards, smaller establishments prefer cash.
- Religion: Buddhism is the predominant religion, practiced by almost 93% of the population. Most others identify with Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Confucianism.

Planning a trip to Ireland can be a lengthy task. One that leaves many scratching their head or pulling their hair out. But, lucky for you, I’ve come to your rescue. Hi, I’m Laura, your local guide. It’s my goal to make your trip to Ireland as carefree as possible. I love seeing visitors fall in love with my home country. Ireland is a magical place, and I understand just how much the trip means to you. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I can’t wait to help you plan it. Now, let’s go on a road trip, an Ireland 7 day itinerary exploring the countries most iconic cliffs, beautiful national parks and we will even take a journey out to one of Ireland’s most scenic islands.

But first, we need to address the big question.

IS 7 DAYS IN IRELAND ENOUGH TIME?

To put it simply, no. 7 days is not nearly enough to see all there is to do in Ireland. In fact, a whole month would only allow you to scratch the service of what the country has to offer. However, with that being said, oftentimes one week in Ireland is all most tourists have. And, while it’s not a huge amount of time, it is enough to see some of the countries major highlights.

Are you planning a visit to Ireland for the first time?

If so, you’ll need some type of itinerary to guide you.

And while Ireland is small, there’s a lot of ground to cover.

In fact, you won’t see everything in 10 days, but with this guide you will see some of the country’s most popular attractions — and a few quirky hidden gems thrown in for good measure.

When designing an itinerary for a first time visit to Ireland, it’s always advisable to draw a line across the country from say Dublin to Galway and then decide which half of the country you want to explore.

With this 10 days in Ireland itinerary, you’ll get to visit some of the popular attractions with tourists in addition to other, lesser-known ones.

This itinerary is geared toward the southern half of Ireland and includes attractions like Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, Waterford City, and more.
