Bangkok street photography: city, people, faith, food, night life and fun photos with a story.
Bangkok at night reminds me of the “Sin City” neo-noir movie without the violence: the suspended highways right through the city, the sound of sirens, the strange-looking skyscrapers with a hint of gothic, the shanty places, the red light neon signs and the ladies of the night, the stray dogs and stray people in dark alleys.

Flying for the first time with the Taiwanese EVA Airlines was a pleasant surprise. Everything is done with the customer in mind, starting with the service and ending with the branding.
The cute, mignon stewardesses were running up and down the aisles in beautiful dark cyan uniforms. When there was time for serving the meals, they will wear pastel coloured aprons. “Watch out! The cart is coming!” Read More

“Whiskey Saigon” was my first blog, created in 2010 in order to keep in touch with my family, friends and coworkers during my four month Asia & Africa adventure.
More than 10 years ago I bought the domain name whiskeysaigon.com. I was looking for a good name, something catchy, exotic, that I can use it or sale it.
It happened to be the name of a well-known club in Toronto, no longer in business.
The “100 Travel Stories” is a continuation and revamping of the old “Whiskey Saigon” travel blog with the addition of new trips and stories. Read More
It was a sunny, but windy day up into the mountains, and the colourful prayer flags were winding against the backdrop of the blue skies with few white clouds. Down in the valley the rivers were flowing between the naked peaks. The flags bring colour and dynamism into the composition. Read More
Down the road I met many wonderful people, locals and other travellers, making my trips very enjoyable. Local people are more open to interact with you while travelling alone. A local friend is a treasured companion. He knows the culture of the place and he is your best guide. You also can find your friend online, before you go. Gifts from your country of origin are much appreciated. Read More
The border crossing between Vietnam and Cambodia was like being in an old movie: dragging my luggage for kilometers on unpaved, country road, along the Mekong River.
In the evening I arrived at Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. I took a walk on the streets and visited a market. No foreigners at all. I tried some grilled fish under the incredulous eyes of the locals. Not bad. I stopped for a beer and a chat with the locals on the side of a busy road. It was funny to see women wearing pyjamas on the street in a central area of Phnom Penh! Read More
