After Dark Bike Rides in Bangkok

July 6, 2011 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under:

Believe it or not, but a few days ago Khiri Travel went on an evening bicycle tour in Bangkok from 6pm-10pm, organised by Grasshopper.

Although not much biking was done (more walking & talking) we felt it was a special experience because we could visit places such as Wat Arun and Wat Po without any other tourists being around. All the temples were well lit by spotlights and looked stunning. The guides were good too.

Another highlight — strangely enough not mentioned in their website description — was the Pak Klong Talad flower market, which is always very busy at night and very, very colourful. Just walking around there with the guide, taking in all the different flowers, fruits, decorations and smells was the highlight.

For a refreshingly different insight into Bangkok after dark, let Khiri book your clients on a Grasshopper tour.

New Tented Camps in Laos with Shangri Lao

Dr Paul Neis, a well known French Indochina explorer who later became the French consul in Canton, led an expedition to the Laotian highlands in 1883. Dr Neis left Luang Prabang on 11 October in that year in two light boats going up the Nam Khan river.

He travelled up the Huay Sae (“Nam Sae”) and set up camp along the Huay Sae, a mountain stream ending in the Nam Khan River. Visitors today can now travel back in time and relive those exciting days when most of Indochina was unexplored territory for outsiders. The new journey has been made possible by German entrepreneur Markus Peschke. Markus is a long time Lao resident and the founder of Tiger Trail, the Indochina Spirit restaurant and, more recently, the Elephant Village. His new project is called Shangri Lao (www.shangri-lao.com). Shangri Lao will consist of two tented camps, one nearby the current Elephant Village, where Dr. Neis and his entourage set up camp in 1883 along the Tad Sae River and one at the Tad Huay Khot, close to Xieng Ngeung village.
