  1. I miss Bangkok so much. I can't get over how friendly people are, how hot it is there, how cheap it is, and how delicious the food is

  2. Bangkok has been voted the best city in Asia. It used to rank NO. 1, the top tourist city in the world. Right now, Bangkok is Asia most visited city.

  3. Do Phnom Penh. I went to Cambodia for my first time when I was 20 years old, I was with my dad and step mom. Haven't gone to Thailand yet!

  4. i love traveling to Thailand. I've been there soooooo many times and still not bored. i love the food, the culture, the language and the shopping.

  5. Thank you for one more amazing video!

    What is the music or the Asian instrument playing when no one speaks? Such as from 00:19 to 00:23 ?

    Thank you again!!

  6. Love the video and helpful too so I can make the most of my travel plans! Will surely take note of these for my booked vacation in Bangkok on October 10, 2017. Travelling solo from Bangkok then will go to Cambodia after. Anyone who is planning to do the same? lol

  7. I love all your travel guide videos and i am a globetrotter myself and i have been to some cities in the world your video motivate me to travel more and can you pls make a video of Istanbul Turkey? I would really love that so much thanks.

  8. I think Thailand will be the next Asian country I will visit. I also read it's the cheapest tourist destination in the world. But she may be right about steamy climate. Someone told me there is no difference in temp/humidity between summer and winter.
