Thetraveljunkie.org – One of the things that we love most about traveling is organising foodie routes in all the different cities that we go to. It’s the best way to get to know restaurants and cafés. We felt drawn towards the Blue Elephant Bangkok, a very cosy Thai restaurant. The restaurant is gorgeous and the food is to die for.
We will definitely be going back and we hope that it will be sooner rather than later.
