Via Vai Soi 8 Sukhumvit

Weekend Bangkok May 2016 Weekend Bangkok May 2016 included visiting new restaurants, sky bars & shopping malls. It’s nice to have a break from Pattaya which is where I live 2 hours south of Bangkok.

Dinner at Via Vai

Weekend Bangkok May 2016 My friend Hamish Elton and I in Soi 8 eating Italian food which was ok without making you want to rush back.

Via Vai is opposite Monsoon which is one of my favourite Bangkok restaurants.

The Game sports bar

Weekend Bangkok May 2016 On Sukhumvit beside Nana station this bar has lots of screens showing all the sports. A separate smoking area overlooks the footpath which spares the drinkers inside the bar. The header to this post is a favourite shot of mine that was taken at “The Game”, I call it Minnesota Fats racking them up. 🙂

Beef stew at THE GAME.

At best it was barely average, next time I’ll try something different.

Now if it’s good food you want…..

Pirate Chambre

A terrific new Bangkok restaurant, the Pirate Chambre at Chidlom. Hard to find but worth the effort. The fabulous lamb shank was only B480.

Put this excellent restaurant on your bucket list.

 Signing the waiver

Weekend Bangkok May 2016 Sign before you ride, the guy didn’t last to long in the saddle, they just pump up the speed and it’s all over rover.

When the Hooter’s girls saddle up it’s a much gentler ride.

Here is my hotel in Soi 11 Weekend Bangkok May 2016
