Here are the top things you could do on your visit to these legendary neighbourhoods.
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. You know the quote – it’s all over the Internet so it must be true! What travel might not always do, however, is make you fitter. All the calories burnt walking around cool, new places will soon be piled on the second you stumble upon that awesome street food market.
Those that have been following my updates on Facebook would know that I have become somewhat of a keen cyclist on my latest trip to Thailand.
