Bangkok coconut wanders
Socotra Island, ‘ghost signs’ of London, and the worst Michelin starred restaurant, ever.
BANGKOK - Being back in Southeast Asia feels like being back in the office after three months away. I’ve spent most of this week working on articles for Future Southeast Asia, so I am behind in my blogging schedule for Nomadic Notes. One article I published was about a proposed monorail that would go through Thonglor (a popular area for digital nomads in Bangkok).
I’m wandering around collecting photos for two reports I’m working on, and I am still a bit buzzed about being back in one of my favourite cities. Simple things like being able to get a coconut from a street vendor are one of the things I like about Bangkok.
Assorted travel reads
“Hundreds of hand-painted signs endure in parts of the U.K. capital, marking the city’s 19th century boom. But many of these advertising artifacts are fading fast.”
“In the shadow of Covid the city-state is both reassuringly familiar yet oddly different, but the lack of crowds is a drawcard.”
“What started as a crowdsourced project has become Google’s first attempt to bring the informal food economy onto the platform.”
