Bangkok train week
Walking across Singapore, train stations turned into hotels, Japan nomad visas, and more travel reads.
Greetings from Phitsanulok. I got the train here from Bangkok, rounding off a train-themed week. After a month in Hua Hin I went back to Bangkok to attend a rail conference.
Hua Hin was great for a month but it does feel like it earns its retirement destination vibe. I feel re-energised coming back to Bangkok and being around opportunities that arise from networking with people here.
Phitsanulok is about halfway to Chiang Mai, so it’s a good place to break up an overland trip. There is also a plan to build a light rail here, so I am here wearing my Future Southeast Asia hat.
I have a new article about Bangkok coming up, so that will be out next week. Until then, here is this week’s round-up of travel reads.
“Magic Eraser lets you buff the randos from your beloved vacation snaps. But you’re losing something valuable in the process.”
