After our brief but heated love affair with Singapore we weren't sure how Bangkok would compare. But the slightly less polished but more colorful sister city did not disappoint. Our time was limited so we made sure to prioritize to what truly matter - eating and getting a rub down. After we arrived we found ourselves in a fantastic little inn in the heart of the city near the Asok/Sukhumvit train station. It's tucked away so we had none of the noise but an easy walk to everything we could possible want. We hit some of the main attractions but the highlight was definitely our cooking class - Cooking with Poo , a social enterprise run by the wonderfully charming Poo who grew up in the slums and opened the cooking school to provide opportunities for women in her community. In the 4 hour course we visited a ginormous local market, made and ate authentic local cuisine, met some locals and supported women in need. What more can you ask for?!
