Khlong saen saep
Khlong saen saep is a canal running through Bangkok from East to West. It ends, or starts near Wat Saket otherwise known as the golden mount temple. This temple is about a 15 minute walk from Khao San road.
Large boats run on the khlong providing easy acces to the big shopping malls at Siam square but also to Makkasan station. The boats on this route are mainly used by locals who commute to their jobs. Tickets are cheap and lot's of boats are on this khlong. Check out their website for more information on the schedule and fairs.
You are at Bottle Beach and getting bored of spending the whole day in your hammock? Go put on some shoes and make a trek to the view point. It starts just behind the bungalows and it will take roughly an hour to get to the top. Do bring lot’s of water and wear some decent shoes. The view of the bay and Koh Tao in the far distance is perfect.
The head of the trail starts behind Bottle Beach 2. You will see flat land behind Bottle Beach 2. Head back from the beach into this area and you will see a trail leading east up into the hills.

As you look out from the viewpoint you get the best view showing the entirety of Bottle Beach. This is to the left of the rock if you are facing out to sea. On the right is the rocky coastline that forms the north-east corner of Koh Ph…

Bangkok is famous for its nightlife. From high end clubs, sky bars for smaller or bigger wallets, to backpacker cafes and the infamous agogo bars, you can all find it in the city. Not so long ago the American branch of Hooters also opened in Bangkok and they now have two locations in the city.
You can find one branch on Sukhumvit soi 4 just opposite of Nana Plaza. The other branch is on Sukhumvit soi 15 near Asoke. Each location has some pretty girls serving drinks and food and at certain times also perform a small group dance to entertain the clients.
