Love in Khao Yai
A merely 2.5 hours’ drive from Bangkok; Khao Yai is the UNESCO World Heritage Site, where it housed the third largest national park of Thailand which is spread across 4 provinces (Saraburi, Nakhon Nayok, Nakhon Ratchasima and Prachinburi.
Gifted with the lush mountainous landscape and valleys, the average temperature is around 23 degree all year round which is quite cool and suitable for growth of various flowers and fruits. There are numerous vineyards around and the vineyards of Thailand’s award-winning labels are located here too!
Happy New Year!!!

No… This was not happened a few days or few weeks before, but happened back in March. I hope I am not late in writing this and sharing with you guys. If you guys are planning for a short holiday just to eat and relax and dream, this could be one.
Before I start on about my food-ful trip, I shall talk a bit on this spiritual trip we had months ago. Thailand is an amazing country with so much to see and explore. We took a merely 3 hours flight to the northern part of Thailand, to discover the spiritual place that is packed with over 200 of temples in Chiang Mai, either small or big.
Where to get into one’s food and culture when you are in a new place?!
Market is my answer; whether it is night market, wet market or dry market.
Last month I was travelling to Chiang Mai with my bff couple after a long planning and we actually bought the air ticket last year.
When I was in Bangkok, I visited the floating market, chatuchak market
When I was in Hua Hin, I went to their night market and some handicraft market.
And for Chiang Mai, of course must not miss out the MARKETs!

A month later after the weekend getaway , I am here on another long-planned trip. Totally a different one whereby I am with my besties, here, learning deep into their religion…
While I was attending my cousin’s wedding in Hai Yai Thailand, I had this opportunity (after my last visit N years ago) to travel around Hai Yai for food and a little bit of shopping. We were brought over to Sane Mai Thai Restaurant for dinner just the night before the wedding. I do hope I provide the correct information as I did not take down any of them, not the restaurant’s information and not even the dishes we ordered.

I just hope it never comes to an end…
