Tarvelling: Thailand - Bangkok


First days of our trip through Thailand after a 12 hours flight we spent in Bangkok, the amazing city which strikes with its colours and culture from the ever first second. As I wrote on my Instagram profile (fashionbridge) if I were a designer I'd definitely choose Thailand as an endless source of collections' inspiration. I can't stop marvel at the beauty and the colourfulness of the country.
I expected worse from Bangkok, but besides a China Town which was quite impressive with its business and chaos the city is very clean and organized. 
We did all very tourist-ish things: we went to the temple comparable with its beauty and size to St. Peter in Vatican; to China town to enjoy spices and craziness of the market over there; took a tuk-tuk ride; ate traditional food and went for a thai massage. In the evening our feet (to be more precise a taxi) brought us to a new business district of Bangkok full of chic restaurants, bars and cafes. The difference between old city and the new areas are truly striking if not to say mind-blowing. However overall Thai people are incredibly friendly, sweet and definitely are the great music fans.
Now we are in Chiang Mai the second biggest city of Thailand. I'll keep you posted about the trip here on the blog and on Instagram (@fashionbridge).
Stay turned!

Два первых дня нашего путешествия по Тайланду мы провели после 12 часового перелета в Бангкоке, невероятно красивой столице страны, поражающей с первого взгляда разнообразием красок и богатством культуры. 
Как я писала в инстаграме (fashionbridge), если бы я была дизайнером, я абсолютно точно выбрала бы Тайланд в качестве бесконечного источника вдохновения. Не могу перестать удивляться и любоваться красочностью этой страны.
Я ожидала худшего от Бангкока. За исключением суеты и хаоса Чана Тауна, город достаточно чист и организован. 
Мы провели наши дни как истинные туристы: посетили несколько храмов, которые по красоте и величаю могут сравниться разве что с собором Св. Петра в Ватикане; испробовали специи и попытались пробраться сквозь сумятицу в районе Чайна Таун; проехались в тук-тук и сходили на тайский массаж. Вечером наши ноги (а точнее такси) привели нас в бизнес центр города, полный модных и дорогих рестаранов, баров и кафе. Разница между старым центром и новым, бизнес центром Бангкока поражает, а то и заставляет врасплох с открытым ртом. Хотя люди везде приветливые, дружелюбные и внимательные. 
Сейсач мы в Чанг Майе, втором по величине городе Тайланда. Не отключайтесь, новый пост о Тайланде уже скоро!


I'm wearing: 
cream Sinequanone sequins dress, vintage ear-rings (present of my aunt)
white Massimo Dutti dress, bracelets: Ettika, Vanilia, vintage & bought in Thailand ones.
