I recently had a weekend in Colombo and so decided that I should check the place out. One of the easiest ways to get around the place is by Tuk Tuk so what better way to explore than in a convertible Tuk Tuk, and that is where Tuk Tuk Safaris come in, they get great reviews online and the timing and price was right so I chose their Colombo Sunset Tuk Tuk Safari.
My guide for the day was Donald Duck, but I decided that he was more of a Duckman than a Donald, he liked the change of name as well 🙂
Duckman’s real name is Chathuranga and he is the real reason why you would want to book a Tuk Tuk Safari tour.
When I was recently in Bangkok I was looking for a new restaurant to try that was walking distance from my hotel and Zanotti Il Restaurante Bangkok was the place I chose. It was also recommended by the staff in the hotel, they eat there, so how could I not give the place a try.
Chef Gianmaria Zanotti established the restaurant in 1998 and I now know why everyone who I spoke to before and after rave about the place. Great food, awesome friendly service and decent wine list. My sort of place.
When Bangkok what should one eat? Thai food of course, so I decided to try one of the top restaurants in town, Nahm Bangkok. Nahm is another Bangkok restaurant that is on the The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants list at number 28 globally and the number 10 restaurant in Asia. Nahm also received a Michelin Star in the inaugural Bangkok guide in 2017.
A part from be well credentialed Nahm Bangkok’s Chef, David Thompson, is an Aussie, so the food must be good. Read more
On a recent trip to Bangkok I dined at Hamilton’s Steak House in the Dusit Thani Bangkok. Hamilton’s has copied the decor and feel of an American style Steak House. This is more a business lunch / dinner spot than a place to go to with a group of friends.
As usual in Thailand the team of Hamilton’s Steakhouse is friendly and attentive, though not overly so. I always smile when I hear the wait-staff apologise for delivering the food or a drink. Read more
