Where to Stay in Bangkok: 137 Pillars Suites and Residences

A few months ago, James and I went on a 2-week excursion to Asia. Our first stop: Bangkok. Since we only had a few days in the city, I didn’t think we’d have enough time to get some much needed R&R. Thanks to 137 Pillars Suites and Residences we found our sweet escape; in the heart of bustling Bangkok nonetheless. Located in the Sukhumvit district, this newly opened boutique hotel is the sister property to the award-winning 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai. After a long  ...

A Quick Guide to Bangkok, Thailand

Unlike most people visiting Southeast Asia, Bangkok wasn’t really on my must-see list. I felt like it might be too similar to Manila. Densely populated, chaotic and has traffic that seems to go on 24/7.

Experiencing The Lights Fest

After a tiring work week, James and I went on a last minute trip to Mesquite for The Lights Fest. It’s the lesser known counterpart to Rise Festival, another lantern festival that takes place in Las Vegas. I’ve always wanted to go to Rise but the ticket prices have deterred me from attending. $129 for a regular ticket + $29 parking pass or $39 shuttle pass? It’s a bit steep if you ask me. What I like about The Lights Fest is their reasonable ticket prices. If you buy your  ...
