5-star hospital

Medical tourism is a big thing in Bangkok. So, you get a lot of posh hospitals around. Bangkok Hospital is one of them.


A fountain greets you when you arrive at the hospital. And you go straight to the International reception where they speak all sorts of language. And there’s even special section that caters for foreigners – like the whole Japanese section (even the TV is playing Japanese shows).

Bell boys help you to carry your luggage.

If you don’t have enough cash, don’t worry, ATMs are available everywhere.


Cafeteria never looked so good.

And if you don’t like cafeteria food, no worries. There’s Starbucks.

Its so big, you may need a tour to see the place.

And if you’re still bored, there’s always other things – museums, art gallery, or even live entertainment!

And if that doesn’t suit you, maybe you can do some exercise and count how many calories you’ve burnt.

Wonderful waterfall in Laos

When you go to Laos, particularly at Luang Prabang, you must go to the Kouang Si waterfalls. It would take some bargaining with the tuk-tuk driver, but its well worth spending half a day there particularly on a very hot day. Ok, I don’t have to say anything more, the pictures will convince you better.

Cool eh?
