When the rain begins to fall. Thailand Rainy Season

So. Here comes the rain again. And it’s here to prove that thunder doesn’t only happen when it’s raining. And I’m sure I’ll be able to add some more rain and pop music related references in this article. Shout out if you found all of them. via GIPHY Blame it on the weatherman Let’s be serious for a moment. Rainy season sucks. Big time. Yes, it’s important to some point and we’re happy to get a bit after the hot summer, but Thailand doesn’t f..k around when it comes to rain and…

Breaking: Winter hits Bangkok; covers city under heaps of fresh air; citizens shocked

As the American East Coast is hit by record breaking blizzards and people start to list Igloos on Airbnb Asia also sees its fair share of winter wonderfulness. Laos and Vietnam see snow and the north of Thailand shivers under temperatures around the freezing point. But that’s not all! While those poor people outside our capital should be used to living on the (climate and economic) edge the winter didn’t even stop from terrorizing Bangkok. When checking ones Facebook newsfeed one couldn’t help but seeing all the panicking posts of weather…

How hot is Bangkok?

How hot is it in Bangkok? That’s a question I’ve been asked quite a few times over the past several weeks.

Living with natural disasters

I‘ve received quite some emails on facebook and twitter asking how it feels to live in an area where natural disasters ‘happen once in a while’. Those questions, obviously, came after the flood hit Thailand once again and reminded many people of the past when earthquakes shook the Land of Smile or, remembering last year, when the most devastating flood of all times caused a lot of pain and desperation.

You can stand under my umbrella – rainy season

Here it comes again. The season of the year where you shouldn’t leave the house without an umbrella. Well, actually, screw the umbrella.

Another piece of advice regarding the rainy season in Thailand: Plan more time for your trips. As soon as it starts to rain most people run for cover since they know how heavy the rain will get at this time of…

Here comes the rain again – Rainy Season in North Eastern Thailand

Rainy seasonis coming closer and closer and so is the rain itself. Right now there are heavy rainfalls on an almost daily basis. Nevertheless there are days where the sun still shines all the time and makes it almost impossible to stay outside without burning instantly. On the other hand there are days where you have to be scared to be flushed away when leaving your house. One of those days just happened the other day and was – according to my colleagues – just the beginning. Rainy season yay!…
