泰 Thai ประเทศไทย

First ever Bangkok trip. Really impressed by Thai people's creativity and uniqueness. While they do have international big brands in the high-end shopping malls, there are a lot of local shops with small-scale original design and individual positioning - they just don't follow the crowd.

Also enjoyed Amphawa's serenity very much. River market, handicrafts, seafood and friendly locals. Did what many tourists would do in Bangkok as well: to visit the Maeklong Railway Market, also known as the Umbrella Pull-down Market in the local language.

It was a trip to rejuvenate in May amidst heavy workload and negative thinking at work. Had fun with family though unfortunately it didn't heal much of my depression back then. Nevertheless, enjoyed Bangkok and hope will be there again soon!

Sawasdeekrap.
