    Eating Chinatown again, and this time I decided to do a full 24 hours in Yaowarat and Charoen Krung area so I booked myself into W22, a kitschy, partly Chinese-themed hotel apparently owned by a Harley-Davidsson lower.

    Jerns burgers allege to be the best burger place in Chiang Dao. I don’t know, but it was surely unexpected that it would be so great.
