About Discovering Bangkok

Our approach

Bangkok is a constantly changing city, so we do. Every day there’s a new hotel or restaurant or some of them close for renovation or definitively and we’ll our best to reflect these variations in our blog. We added a section in the footer with the posts that have been changed because of this. We also modify the publication date of the related post, so you can find them more easily.

To help you immerse in Bangkok’s everyday experience, we add the Thai transcription of the names, both the written and spoken versions, of the most relevant spots like road and alley names, temple names, historic people names, most popular dishes names, and so on. This will help you to interact easily with locals and grasp the information you can find in posting signs or restaurant menus.
