Day 4 :: Open air train ride in Kanchanaburi. The dramatic views from the bridges (where yes, you can hang out of the sides of the train car) were worth the wait. And wait we did, the trains didn't exactly run on time but that was part of the charm. We snacked on ice cream and cold tea as we waited ...

Days 10 & 11 :: The train here in Bangkok is really nice, clean and organized. Once you jump on the trains/subways during rush hour ... is when you really start to feel a party of a city! Get a Rabbit card, makes everything easier.

Day 9 :: This is another experience that the Sarojin can arrange for you ... didn't do this but we did have a private wine tasting which BTW, MB of @Jetset Extra won with her worldly palate ...

Day 9 :: This small roadside memorial commemorates the tragedy that took place and the strength and resilience of the Thai people in the wake of the devastation. I was just sad that we didn't have time to visit the orphanage before our plane back to Bangkok. Humbling.

Day 3 :: Dheva Mantra Resort & Spa. After visiting the Bridge over River Kwai, we arrived at this beautiful property that fuses traditional thai architecture with colonial influences with its location right on the River. My corner room had two balconies that overlooked the jungle and the river.

Day 4 :: Vertigo and Moon Bar @ The Banyan Tree Hotel. I am admittedly a very lucky girl and have had cocktails at some of the most dramatic locations in the world. Jules Vernes in the Eiffel Tower Paris; London on New Year's Eve, Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, numerous rooftops here in Hollywood ... but the 360 degree view from this rooftop bar and restaurant in Bangkok has got to be one of the most dramatic ever! WOW!

Day 5 :: The Royal Barge Museum – the legacy of Kings. While we were on our Long Tail Boat Ride in the river, Tippie and Tass suggested we stop here. What a treat! We had a chance to see that Thai attention to detail and workmanship up close and personal on the Royal Barges.
