Roger Wu runs a very popular website for the Chinese market called Thailandfans.com. He also writes guidebooks for the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Hong Kong office. He is no Jacky Chan, but a lot of people in Hong Kong know him.

Roger has been living in Bangkok for more than 10 years now and in fact, Thailand has already become his home. Even the TAT recognizes this, and in fact the tourism body awarded him as one of the “Friends of Thailand” in 2000. Not surprisingly, Roger’s favorite travel destination is Bangkok.

What makes Bangkok so special for him? “It’s like fusion food,” Roger says. “It has both a traditional side and a trendy side. I really enjoy shopping here, and eating – incidentally two things that our Thai hosts also enjoy. That Bangkok has been consistently been getting “Best City” awards is a testament to its being a great city to live and work in.”

Tips to Share to Other Travelers
Must-do: Go to Srinakarin Train Market to see those vintage items and cars

Must-see:
Batcat Museum. It’s actually not in Bangkok proper but so easy to reach. Its collections of super bat heroes are really more interesting than those in Western museums!

Sleep at:
Siam Kempinski Bangkok: It’s the only hotel in Bangkok with pool access rooms. Also super good service and super location.

Eat at:
Siam Paragon; easy to go and lots of restaurants; no traffic jam, and 100% hassle-free.

Drink at:
Red Sky of Centara Grand at CentralWorld. The view is good and prices are reasonable. Most importantly, you can get seats very easily.

Bring:
A happy heart.

Don’t forget:
To buy those Thai design Tee from JJ Market. They are cheap and unique, so unlike others.

Other tips:
Avoid taking a taxi between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m., and especially between 5 and 9 p.m. The jam’s like hell. Better use the BTS skytrain service; no jam and fast.
