Bangkok East-meets-West with opulent love affair If you want a fun-filled romantic honeymoon with possibly everything Bangkok has to offer, think no further than spending a few days in the capital. Blessed with endless options of activities – shopping, dining, nightlife and sightseeing – your honeymoon will be a trip to remember and a fun getaway for both of you. While you set out to explore and experience the bustling Bangkok, add a slice of heaven and sweet, romantic touch to the trip by staying in one of Bangkok’s several nostalgic, charming retreats by the Chao Phraya River. The old town Bangkok is vibrant with cultural richness, great food and drink options and lots of attractions to see. Start the day lazily and enjoy breakfast by the river, then head out to the temple galore close by to receive blessings or just marvel the traditional Thai arts. Take a relaxing afternoon stroll and savor the elegant Colonial architecture and observe “slow life” in the heart of the capital city, or pamper your spouse with wide range of top quality spas. Cozy up in a jazz bar along the river for a drink or two as the night sets in. Sukhumvit and Silom Roads are just a short taxi ride away, should you wish for a quick jolt of extra action that Bangkok is notorious for. We recommend you to stay at The Siam, a luxurious retreat by the pier. Built on n inherited riverside land by celebrity and musician Krissada Sukosol Clapp, the hotel amid lush garden was designed by globally acclaimed architect and interior/landscape designer Bill Bensley, one of Architectural Digest’s ‘Top 100 Designers and Most Creative People’. The overall setting reflects the period of Bangkok’s most opulent grandeur, under King Rama V (circa 1853-1910), with Art Deco accents and dotted with the owner’s vast collection of genuine antiques and rare collectibles. www.thesiamhotel.com Break away from the world and enjoy each other’s company at Chakrabongse Villas – a royalty’s residence turned hotel – on the bank of the Chao Phraya River. Homey and comfortable with royalty finesse, Chakrabongse House was built in 1908 by HRH Prince Chakrabongse, the ground houses six individual suites in a lush tropical garden with stunning panoramic view of the river stretch. It goes without saying that you’ll be treated like prince and princess here! www.thaivillas.com

Check in at Baan Ma Kok – ecotourism-inspired boutique guesthouse surrounded by mangrove trees, right by the canal that flows from the waterfall to the beach. Each of the eight guestrooms has unique layout and built from reclaimed woods. www.bannmakok.com

The Journey by Anyarat Mongkonlertsak

White Water Adventure

in NAN

南府-激流冒险

S

ituated in the Northeast of Thailand where the hilly forests are lush all year-round, Nan has many rivers running south to nourish the land. One of Nan’s rivers is Nam Wa River, the swift steam along the Thai-Lao border is frequently visited by those adventure lovers who come to experience the white water rafting in the main Nam Wa River. It is definitely a great bonding experience with friends and families.

位于泰国东北部的丘陵森林,全年都绽放着苍翠繁 茂的美丽。 南府有许多河流,向南运行,滋养着土地。其中的 一条河流是南华莆河,河流旁伴随着蒸汽,沿着泰老边境, 经常来此地的那些探险爱好者来南华莆河体验激流冒险,寻 找刺激。这无疑是一个珍贵的经验可以分享给朋友和家人。

General Information

Flows through a rugged limestone mountain range that defines the border, passing through two national parks along the way, the untamed main Nam Wa is considered the toughest water rafting in Thailand with the pumping grade ranging from 2-5 and the long 80 km of team effort. To fully experience the whole route, you and your buddies have to spend at least 3 days in the remote area of Nan, physically and mentally challenge yourselves under the hot sun and sleeping in tents near the riverbank at night. This is a rarity in Thailand with only a few rivers offering such an exhilarating experience. Though, you might find the water seems to be risky; don’t let your fear keep you from having fun. There are several experienced rafting operators that (besides born and live along the river) value your safety above all. They will tech you about rafting and safety procedure before they let you get on the raft. If there are any emergencies situations or signs of danger such as flash flood or heavy rain, good operators will take you out of the water immediately. Make sure everyone in your group can swim and find a good trustworthy operator that has reliable reputation, safety equipments and insurance before going into the water, you will be fine.

介绍 河流会经过一个崎岖的石灰岩山脉,它定义了两个 国家的边界。 主南华莆被认为是最艰难的水上泛舟,河流长度 为80公里,在泰国被评为2-5级,需要整个团队的努力和奋 斗。为了充分体验到整条路线,你和你的哥们至少需要花上 3天的时间,在烈日下,挑战身体和精神上的极限,晚上在 河岸附近的帐篷补足精神。在泰国只有几条河流可以提供这 样一个令人振奋的经验。虽然,你可能会发现这项活动似乎 是存在着风险,但也不要让你的恐惧阻止你玩乐XD。 有几个经验丰富的漂流经营商(长期生活在河岸上 的居民)会确保您的安全高于一切。他们会教你怎么在安全 的考量下,游玩的尽兴,之后才让你上竹筏。如果有任何突 发情况或危险发生,比如有山洪或大雨的迹象,认真负责的 经营商将带你出竹筏。 所以在冒险开始前,必须确保你的小组每个人都会 游泳,并且找到一个值得信赖的经营商,拥有可靠的信誉, 安全设备和保险。

出发前的准备 由于主南华莆的道路有点难通行,经营商会为您准 备食物,野营设备和漂流设备。让你在美丽的滨江享受夜晚 星光灿烂的时光。所以,你不必自己携带东西.^^ 最重要的事情就是你自己!!因为你的身体必须足以 忍受花3天的时间在野外生活,河流之旅-不会是一个豪华的 行程。XD 基本上,要大量吃(美味的)泰国食品lol,睡觉和 方便都在在森林里,你根本不知道会发生什么事。 南华莆河并不适合每一个人,但如果你是为它而 来-那这就会是一次最难忘的野外经验。 因为你要整天弄的湿哒哒,你不应该穿会吸水的衣 服,万一你落入水中,后果不堪设想。而且您不必在此行带 许多衣服,像这样惊心动魄的冒险,没有人会注意到你昨天 穿过的衬衫。穿舒适的衣服和在凉爽的夜晚里加件毛衣。不 需要戴墨镜,因为你将会遗失它lol。再来,重要的是鞋子, 在河里,可能会踩到尖锐的岩石。 (我个人建议穿绑带的 凉鞋)。


Preparation As the main Nam Wa is a little bit hard to access by cars, the operators will prepare foods, camping equipments, and rafting equipments for you to spend nights on the beautiful riverside. So, you don’t have to bring your own. The most important thing you should prepare is yourself. You have to be physically fit enough to spend 3 days in the wild steam. And you have to prepare your psyche that this river trip will not be a luxurious one. Eating basic but substantial (and delicious) Thai food, sleeping in isolated forest and going to a make-shift toilet are what waiting for you. Nam Wa River is not for everyone but if you are up for it. This is an unforgettable wilderness experience for you. Because you have to spend all day getting wet, you shouldn’t wear heavy water-adsorbing cloth, in case you fall into the water. You don’t have to bring many cloths in this trip; on thrilling adventure like this, no one is going to notice you wearing yesterday shirt. Bring comfortable clothes and may be an extra sweater for a cool night. No sunglasses, you will lose it. Also, it is important to wear shoes while you are in the river because you might step on sharp rocks. (I personally recommend sandals with straps.)


The Journey

Other places you should visit There are some culturally-significant in Nan that you should visit while you are in the province. For example; the murals in Wat Phumin, Wat Phra that Chae Haeng (the must visit for people born in Rabbit year zodiac) and Nan National Museum.

如何到那里呢? 汽车:从曼谷出发 - 高速公路32号到Nakonsawan,然后换 17号至Phitsanulok。通过沿着11号公路穿过”Prae” 再转向 101号,直到你看到(Nan)南省的欢迎标志。 从清迈出发 - 上高速公路106号,再左转到11号。沿着路线 开,之后切换到101号,直到你到达南省。 公交车:每天都有从MOCHIT客运站离开的(曼谷)空调巴 士。 飞机: “Solarai” 提供从曼谷到南府 - 1.5小时的飞行时间。

还有一些其他地方可以去看看 南府有些富有文化意义的象征~例如窟壁画, Wat Phra that Chae Haeng(出生在兔年的人必须参观)和南国家博物馆。。

How to get there By Car: From Bangkok - Take the highway no.32 to Nakonsawan then no.17 to Phitsanulok. Go along highway no.11 through Prae and turn to no.101 until you see the Nan Province welcoming sign. From Chiang Mai – Take the highway no.106 and turn left to no.11. Drive along the route then switch to 101 until you arrive at the province. By Bus: There are air-conditioning buses departing from Mochit 2 Bus Terminal (Bangkok) everyday. By Plane: Solarair provides 1.5 hour flight from Bangkok to Nan.


Forget Travel Planning: Embrace Serendipity


Travel tips

While it’s tempting to pack your vacations full of exciting events and interesting places, sometimes the best vacations are the ones you don’t plan. Vacations are about discovery, not accomplishment. The more you plan, the less you give yourself the opportunity to find out more about yourself and the world around you. Before you sign up for a package tour and lock yourself into a set itinerary, decide to follow your bliss. Make your next trip serendipitous. The following 5 tips will show you how:

1) Location, Location, Location. Like real estate, serendipitous travel is all about location. To find a great jumping off point, start with pictures. Try National Geographic Magazine, or spend some time on Flickr searching for things like “the best time of my life, relaxing, exciting, or unforgettable.” You’re much better off searching for an emotion than a specific place. As you look at the pictures, you’ll get a stronger sense of what you like. Next, modify your search to include more specific language like beach, rock climbing, or show. Once you’ve narrowed down your alternatives, start writing down the names of specific places that appear in the pictures. You’ll probably end up with a list of 10 to 20 practical locations.

2) Chose the best time to travel. Oddly enough, one

of the most common mistakes when planning a vacation is choosing the wrong time to visit. While it may seem like a great idea to visit Yosemite in July, once you arrive, you’ll probably spend more time in traffic than you do on your daily commute. Why would you put yourself through that kind of stress? On the other hand, if you’re going to Rio de Janeiro for Mardi Gras, there’s really only one time to go. Before you select a specific time for your vacation, try to imagine what it would be like at that time. Again, doing photo search for the time and place where you are planning to visit will give you a good idea of what the real thing will be like when you get there.

当你收拾你的行李,满心欢喜准备着去旅行,但有时最好 的休假是去那些你从没想过要去的地方。假期是探索, 而不是一项成就。你的计划越多,等于少给自己一些机 会去找出更多自己一面和周围的世界。在您报名参加旅行 团后,就等于把自己锁到了一套行程里,不如跟随你的幸 福。使你的下一次旅行遇见偶然。以下有5个技巧会告诉 你如何~ 探索自己:

1)地点!!地点!!地点!! 像是买房子, 就算是随意的旅行也是关于去哪里好?

不如找一个起点,搜寻相关图片。或者试试国家地理杂 志,或在Flickr上寻找喜欢话题,像是”我最棒的生活, 放松,兴奋,或令人难忘的“。你最好多找一些情感化 的,而不是一个具体的地方。多花一些时间在上面。当你 看到那些图片,你会得到你的结论哦~ 接下来,修改您的搜索,加上更具体的语言,像海滩,攀 岩,或表演。一旦你缩小你的搜索范围,开始写下出现在 图片上的地理位置。您最终的名单可能会有10至20个位 置^^。

2)选择最佳的旅游时间。奇怪的是,在规

划一个假期时,最常见的错误之一,是选择了错误的时间 去旅游。尽管在你心中可能看起来是一个很好的想法,在 7月份前往优胜美地,但当你到达时,你可能会花更多的 时间比你在日常间通勤交通>< ! 为什么你又把自己挤进那样的压力里呢?另一方面,如果 你打算到里约热内卢庆祝狂欢节,真的只有依照着时间表 去。 在您为您的假期选择一个特定的时间,试着尝试想象当你 到那里时,会像什么样子。再次,做好时间和地方的图片 搜寻计划,将会给你一个好主意,当你到达那里,所看到 的真实影像哦~

3)留下您的废物在家。 如果您在假期带来了DVD播放机,你不是去度假的,那就 是跟呆在家是一样的。请你帮个忙,如果不能放进在你的 旅行袋里,那就不要带着它。除非你打算“与星共舞”, 你真的不需要带着3件晚礼服或12双鞋。轻装上阵会给你 机会来改变命运。如果您需要购买任何工具,当你到达那 里,你唯一需要的就是~您的信用卡。


Travel tips

3) Leave your crap at home. If you need to

bring a DVD player on vacation, you’re not really going on vacation. You’re staying home somewhere else. Do yourself a favor and unplug. If you can’t fit it in an overnight bag, then don’t bring it. Unless you’re going on “Dancing with the Stars” you really don’t need 3 evening gowns or 12 pair of shoes. Traveling light will give you the opportunity to change direction at a moment’s notice. If you need to buy gear when you get there, the only thing you need to pack is your credit card.

4) Find the crossroads. It’s virtually impossible

to catch a whim at a hotel or restaurant frequented by visitors. You’ll just end up doing the same things everybody does when they come to town. When you arrive at your serendipitous location, you’ll need to find the crossroads: typically a place where life happens. Some great places to start are farmer’s markets, festivals catering to ethnic groups, or places with outstanding architecture. In foreign countries, often the best place to start is a city park on a Saturday afternoon. In a pinch, try taking a ferry, train, or bus by following people who look interesting to you. You never know what may be around the next corner.

5) Start Walking.

Sometimes a great vacation starts with a great walk. Start somewhere central and follow the crowds. You’ll never go wrong following a wedding procession or a marching band. If you get lost, always choose the largest street when making a turn. Sooner or later, you’ll find to something familiar. If all else fails, flag down a cab and head for a major landmark.

6) Say Yes. Nothing exciting is ever going to happen to you if you don’t say yes. Serendipitous travel, like improvisational comedy, is based on the premise that anything can happen. Possible starts with yes, not no. If someone invites you to their wedding, say yes. If you see a weird story in the local newspaper, go see for yourself. If you’ve heard about crop circles or alien abductions, why not have a look? 7) Put away your watch. There’s no reason you have to get up

at 8 in the morning or eat dinner at 6. Eat when you’re hungry, sleep when your tired. If you want to spend 10 hours at the beach, then do it. Serendipitous vacations are all about the id, not the ego. Become a hedonist. Sate your senses. Fill your memory with things that are worth remembering, like sunsets, cobblestone streets, and mountain air, not traffic jams and two for one coupons. While serendipitous vacations can change your life, they’re not for everybody. Your willingness to let go of the predictable and venture into the unknown comes with its own problems. If you’re not comfortable with the idea that you could be sleeping on someone’s couch or sitting up all night in the airport once in a while, then you probably won’t like this mode of travel. Like anything, serendipitous travel involves both risk and work. But if you can handle the ambiguity of not knowing what’s going to happen next, you will find a whole new world of opportunity open up to you. Great things could be just around the corner. Why not give it a try?


Travel tips

4)查十字路口- 几乎不可能心 血来潮的赶在游客经常光顾的 酒店或餐厅。你只是跟每个人都做了同

样的事情。当您来达一个偶然的位置,你必需要 找到十字路口:典型的发生偶然的地方。你可以 先去参观当地的农贸市场,迎合各族的节日,或 是有着优秀建筑的地方。在国外,这里往往是最 好的地方- 在一个星期六的下午,先去城市公园 走走。在紧要关头,尝试坐坐看渡轮,火车或公 共汽车。你永远不知道在旁边的角落里会发生 事^^。

5)来来~散步吧! 有时候一个伟 大的假期由一个伟大的步行而 启程。从某处的中央开始或跟着人群走。你 永远不会因为跟着婚礼游行或是军乐队走而出问 题。如果你迷路,总是选择最大的街道继续。迟 早,你会发现到一些熟悉的东西。如果一切都失 败了,拦下一辆出租车,直奔一个当地主要的里 程碑。

6)Say Yes! 如果你不说”好”时,平平淡淡才会永远会发生 在你身上。偶然的旅行,喜欢即兴的意外,基于 这个的前提下,什么都可能会发生。可能是个开 始,不是”没有”。如果有人邀请你参加他们的 婚礼,请说”好”。如果你在当地报纸上看到一 个奇怪的故事,请自己去了解探索。如果你听说 过关于麦田怪圈的外星人绑架事件,为什么不看 看呢?

7)收起你的手表或闹钟~,您没

有理由必须在早上8点起床起床或晚上6点吃晚 餐 。在旅游时,饿了去吃饭,累了就去睡觉。 如果你想在海滩上玩10个小时,就去这样做。偶 然的假期是休闲娱乐 ,而不是自我约束。成为 一个享乐主义者吧~满足你的心愿,该放松时就 放松,拥抱大自然,抛开凡俗的一切,做自己! 记住你的美好又值得记住一辈子的回忆,像是日 落,鹅卵石铺就的街道,山间空气,没有堵车和 灿烂的天空~!

虽然一个偶然的假期可以改变你的生活,但不是 适合所有的人。所有的问题是看你愿意放手进入 未知的世界吗? 如果你感到不舒服,你可以睡在 别人的沙发上或在机场坐上一整晚,那么你可能 不会喜欢这样的旅行方式。任何事情一样,旅行 涉及风险和准备工作。但是,如果你能处理危 机,不知道接下来会发生什么,你会发现,这将 会打开一个全新世界的机会。美妙有刺激的旅 程,指日可待。为什么不给它一个机会呢?

Singapore’s Spectacular, Must-Try Street Foods

来到新加坡~您必须尝试的街头食品!!

A

rguably the food capital of Asia, Singapore mingles flavors from Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Thailand and every region of China. While there are plenty of elegant restaurants to choose from, it’s the street food that’s the real highlight of this dining destination. No one can sample it all in just one trip, but here are five dishes that must not be missed.

Satay Satay is the quintessential Singapore street food, so much so that the first curbside gathering of street food hawkers was known as the Satay Club. This simple dish is made by threading bits of marinated morsels of chicken, beef, mutton, tripe or pork on bamboo skewers and grilling over high heat. Singapore satay leans either of two ways: toward Malay, with a spicy, curry-oriented marinade, or toward China, with a marinade that is sweet and salty. Sauce is often served on the side, in flavors ranging from sweet peanut to fiery Thai to spicy pineapple. It’s not uncommon for a satay vendor’s fame to rest on his secret recipe sauce. To sample the best of this ubiquitous dish, look for a stall that’s been in business for a long time, as their recipe has probably been handed down for two or more generations. 可以说这里是亚洲美食的大本营,新加坡混和来自 马来西亚,印度,印尼,泰国和中国各地区的口味。虽然有 很多漂亮的餐厅可供选择,但是!!它的街头食品,才是餐饮的 真正亮点。没有人可以在短短的一个行程品尝到一切,但这 里有五道菜,一定不能错过。

沙嗲 沙嗲- 是新加坡最典型的美食之一,以至于被称为 沙爹俱乐部。这个简单的菜是由腌制鸡肉,牛肉,羊肉,猪 肚或猪肉,串上竹签,再用猛火烧烤。新加坡沙嗲分为两种 方式: 对马来人- 辣,咖喱卤汁,对中国,是甜的,咸 的。这些酱汁通常就在桌子旁边,当然也有泰国口味- 从甜花 生到辣菠萝酱,应有尽有。有些摊贩的名气在于他的秘方酱 汁。做了很久生意的摊主表示,他们的配方可能已经被两个 或两个以上的代流传下来。

Chili Crab Of the many dishes that claim to be Singapore’s national dish, chili crab rates highest with most tourists. And what’s not to love? Crab steamed in the shell in a delicious sauce and eaten, messily and with gusto, without silverware. Those who don’t love spicy food should not let the name deter them. The dish is not hot and the overall flavor blend is spicy-sweet. The sauce is tomato-based and other ingredients include fermented black beans, ginger, garlic, a sparing amount of fresh chilis and mild chili sauce. The sauce is so delicious that toasted bread is served with it so diners can mop up every last bit.

辣椒螃蟹 声称是新加坡的国菜,大多数游客都喜爱这道菜~谁 能不爱呢?使用美味的酱汁蒸熟蟹,这道菜的整体风味混合着 辣和甜。加上番茄酱和其他的材料,包括豆豉,姜,蒜,新鲜 辣椒和温和的辣椒酱。酱汁是如此的美味,再加上烤面包的无 限供应,所有的食客可以扫荡每一个每一滴的菜肴。

Hokkien Mee Hokkien doesn’t refer to a province but to the dialect spoken by the enormous number of Chinese who immigrated to Singapore from the end of the 19th century through the first half of the 20th. They brought their cooking style with them, and today hokkien mee can be found throughout Malaysia. The Singapore version is distinctly different, and is served as a stir-fry instead of a soup. The base of the dish is a combination of egg and rice noodles in a sauce of coconut milk, onions, cardamom, cinnamon, curry, ginger and garlic. Adding to the delight are prawns, or prawns and chicken, and hard-boiled eggs.

福建虾面 在这里- 福建并不是指一个省,而是因为,从19世纪 底到20世纪的上半年,数量庞大的中国人移民到了新加坡。 他们带来了自己的烹饪风格,今天的福建面,可以被发现在整 个马来西亚里。新加坡版本的面有着明显的不同,它是一个炒 菜,而不是一碗汤。这份菜是由鸡蛋和米粉混合在椰子牛奶, 洋葱,小豆蔻,肉桂,咖喱,生姜和大蒜酱的组合。添加的材 料还有虾,鸡肉和煮鸡蛋。


Neighbor focus

Rojak It’s hard to describe this delicious mélange of fruit, vegetables and crunchy fried dough. Think of it as Singapore’s version of bread salad. Typical ingredients in vegan rojak are pineapple, cucumber, jicama, bean sprouts, deep-fried tofu and fritters. The dressing consists of shrimp paste, sugar, lime and chili. Non-vegan versions of rojak contain fried cuttlefish or squid. To sample this dish at it’s best, look for a stall that’s preparing batches as orders come in rather than one with prepared dishes waiting to be bought.

啰喏 (食时浇辣椒酱的马来西亚 色拉) 很难形容这种美味的水果,它是由蔬菜和炸得粉粉脆脆 的面团混和而成。你可以把它当成是新加坡面包沙拉的版本。素食 主义者的啰喏是菠萝,黄瓜,豆薯,豆芽,炸豆腐和油条。辅料由 虾酱,糖,石灰和辣椒。非素食主义者的啰喏版本包含炒墨鱼或鱿 鱼。要品尝这道菜最好最好买刚做好的,而不是买现成的^^。

Chicken Rice Along with chili crab, chicken rice is most often named as Singapore’s national dish. The name isn’t showy, but chicken rice is comforting and subtly addictive. The dish is made by steaming chicken in scalding water with garlic, ginger and onion, then serving over rice cooked in chicken stock with garlic, ginger, and fresh cilantro. It sounds simple but the tenderness and succulence of the chicken leaves most people craving more.

鸡肉饭 除了辣椒螃蟹,鸡肉饭是最经常被命名为新加坡的国 菜。这个名字是不怎么吸引人,但是等你吃过了鸡肉饭,真的会吃 上瘾。这道菜是由热气滚烫的水煮熟鸡肉后,再加上大蒜,生姜和 洋葱,再服饭煮鸡汤,大蒜,生姜,新鲜香菜。这听起来很简单, 但看那嫩嫩多汁的鸡肉,让你欲罢不能啊!!

Grazers and tasters should note that Singapore street food isn’t found on the street but in food courts, locally known as hawker centers. What the system lacks in old world charm it makes up for in well-maintained cleanliness and the convenience of finding huge variety of food in one small space. Some of the best-known hawker centers are Golden Shoe, Old Airport, in and around Chinatown and on Beach Road. Don’t worry if a center isn’t air-conditioned or modern looking. Singaporeans look on such frills with suspicion where street food is concerned, and the best fare is usually found in plain centers with large crowds. 素食主义者和美食评论家应该注意一点,新加坡的街头 食品不是在大街上,而是在美食广场里,在当地被称为小贩中心。 它在维护良好又清洁和方便的空间里,您可以找到种类繁多的食 物。一些最知名的小贩中心在旧机场,唐人街,或是在海滩路都可 以看到。不要担心,如果这里没有空调或看起来不现代化。但是别 担心太多,最合理又好吃的美食通常都被发现在小贩中心包围着大 量的人群lol。
