Southeast Asian Persuasian

Places that make you feel alive. Places that make you say damn! Places that make your jaw drop!

1. Bangkok

Bangkok is the Crux of Southeast Asia. Khao San, Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam, Chinatown…It’s all here. if you want to go shopping checkout Siam,  if you want to go party and experience The Nightlife go dancing check out silom.  if you’d like to see the upscale area go to Sukhumvit.

Where to Stay

Sure you can look online for a nice place to stay for about 35 u.S. Per night, but you don’t need to since there are so many hostels in the city that you can stay at for just a few bucks a night.


Soi 4 in Silom is the gayborhood. Don’t miss it!

Activities

Do you like to drink and party? Then Khao San is your spot. Starting in the early afternoon tourists Backpackers start drinking and eating food from the street vendors and shopping, and then on Into the Night dance music starts playing people start dancing in the street and in the bars and before you know it you’re eating a scorpion on a stick.

Now if you like to go out drinking and dancing in the gayborhood then silom is your spot. DJ station is the big dance club in the area and it has a cover charge of about 10 US dollars but it comes with two drinks.  there’s plenty of tourists here as well as locals. This is one of our favorite spots in Bangkok to party. There’s a stop on the BTS for this area.

If you’re not looking for the gay scene but you’re looking for ladies or maybe some ladyboys then you should check out Nana. There’s plenty of sports bars dancing bars Go-Go bars strip clubs, food stalls, hotels and hostels and the BTS and MTS are nearby.

Watch Out

There are plenty of tousist scams in Bangkok. Check online, maybe YouTube, for a quick overview. This could save you quite a bit of money!

3. Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a walkable City, sure there’s places you can take the train, but I enjoy walking to see the locals. The Petronas Towers, the Kuala Lumpur tower, the Batu Caves, Petaling Street, the Kuala Lumpur City Center.

You can take the train straight out to the batch of caves, it’ll be the last stop. It’s pretty cheap to get out there I think it’s like $2. There’s quite a few Hindu holidays so don’t be surprised if you arrive and you see a lot of people. After hiking the stairs you’ll enter the cave area and you’ll be able to see the monkeys I like to eat food from The Tourist. On your way back down y’all had a great view of the city and a nice shot with your camera.


The Batu Caves are great, and there’s a restaurant that serves incredible food near downtown

Petaling Street is a large street market. it’s rather unbelievable how much merchandise that can fit into this area and on the streets. You’ll have people following you from sawdust all trying to sell you wallets watches jewelry. Anything you can think of you can probably find here.

4. Hong Kong

Hong Kong is like a travel Adventure City. There’s so much to see and do in this city you could probably spend a week here and not do it all. Of course there’s Disneyland, but there’s plenty of natural beauty and cityscape to see as well. If you get a chance you should take the cable car the aerial cable car non-paying 360 you’ll get gorgeous views of the city.


Hong Kong will steal your heart

We took a small Cable Car ground cable car up to Victoria Peak so we can oversee the city, if you’re lucky it won’t be foggy and like it was when we went. But if it is there’s a photographer up there who will Photoshop the city lights in the background for you for a fee. We opted for the all-natural photo selfie that we have here on the page. This is such a common occurrence that they actually have somebody that can Photoshop the background for you.

At the top of Victoria Peak you can check out Madame Tussauds if you want to see the wax museum, it’s pretty cool. Make sure that when you get the Peak Tram up to Victoria Peak you get a round trip ticket.

And since you’re so close you might as well take the ferry across to Macau.  I would suggest doing this in the morning to explore Macau during the day and then take the ferry back into Hong Kong in the evening so you get to see the city lights across the bay at night time.

There’s also the Tian Tan Giant Buddha on a mountain, but we didn’t get to see it since we only had two days there.

9. Khao Yai National Park

Khao yai National Park in Thailand cost 400 Baht to enter, and it cost about another four hundred Baht for a tent, a sleeping bag, and pillow. If you don’t know how to pitch a tent, bring some beer and meet your neighbors!!!:-) It’s totally worth it!

Here you’ll find elephants if you’re lucky, as well as waterfalls, hiking trails, deer, gibbons, giant lizards, incredible scenic views and of course ticks and leeches.;-) Dress in long pants and high socks.


Hike the waterfalls and go to the elephant towers

If you’re an outdoors or nature person this is not to be missed. You could ride motorbikes up, but it’d be much better to rent a car or go with local Thai people and take their car.

The deer will come right into the campground and eating apple out of your hand. our neighbors left their tent unzip and when we came back from a hiking trail without a deer and their tent poking its head out staying dry from the rain. So of course we filmed it and showed it to them when they returned. They were pretty surprised!

10. Sangkhlaburi, Thailand

Wow! This part of Thailand is incredible!

Do whatever it takes to come here. It’s about a 5 hour drive west of Bangkok by car, so by motorbike it might be a little bit longer. Spend a weekend here with a friend and go see the Mon bridge and go walk around the neighborhood on the other side. Walk up to the temples, eat the local cuisine, buy some trinkets from the people. make sure you take a long boat ride out to the sunken temples.


Walk across the Mon bridge and get your face painted.

Recommendation

When we went, the river was low so the temples were above water. We were able to walk right into them. But during other months of the year, the river rises like 15 to 20…maybe even 30 feet, so it’s actually partially sunken temples that you float around on a boat.

The Myanmar border is right here as well. If you have room in your passport, check it out. But remember that you’ll only have a 15 day period to either extend your visa or leave Thailand once you cross back into Thailand.

There are waterfalls and national parks all over this area. Keep your eyes open on your drive back into Bangkok and you’ll see a Buddhist temple inside a cave right along the main road.
