Welcome to Redcat Travel. I’m Stefan and have been living and working in Bangkok and traveling around Thailand during the past 16 months. I hope you have fun with my entertaining, informative and sometimes crazy stories about Bangkok and beyond.
- Yesterday was the 86th birthday of Thailand's revered king, his majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. This day is celebrated throughout the country as Fathers Day (Wan Poo, วันพ่อ) and obviously the biggest celebrations take place here in Bangkok. To be more precise, at two places in the old town near Khaosan Road: At the Sanam Luang (Royal Plaza) and Democracy Monument.
It was the first time for me to join the celebrations - ...more
- Bangkok is such a cool city, there’s always new things to discover and places that seem pretty standard and unspectacular in most countries that you know can be set up pretty awesome right here in Thailand’s Big Mango. One of the best examples for ordinary places made extraordinary are public bathrooms in Bangkok! No joke, if you have spent some time here you probably know what I’m talking about and ...more
- Most people traveling to Sukhothai, the first real capital of Siam, don't know about the various other significant historical towns in the region. Kamphaeng Phet is one of them and its historical park is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Historic Town of Sukhothai and Associated Historic Towns".

So if you come here you won't be disappointed and that's not different with activities after sunset, I was surprised ...more

Very excited about the upcoming 14 days, I was curious if this statement really was true. I decided to visit the so called "big four of Myanmar" which are: Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake.
I picked some ...more
- Kamphaeng Phet literally means "Diamond Wall" and this refers to the former military significance during the Sukhothai and Ayuthaya eras, when the strong city walls served as a prospective barrier against attacks from Burma and Lanna, roughly from the 13th to 18th centuries.
Today Kamphaeng Phet, located 293 km north of Bangkok, is often overseen by travelers that rather give Sukhothai or Phitsanulok a visit halfway on their journey from Bangkok ...more
- No matter how much we all love Thailand, there's always things you hear foreigners complaining about Thai society. Sometimes it's funny or weird things Thai people do like putting ketchup on the pizza and sometimes you hear people telling you characteristics they think Thai people have. One such thing you might have been told by some Farang is "Thai people are so lazy". I think that's not just a pretty general ...more
