I am back to my desk to feature a traveller who hails from the city of Bangkok in Thailand. A very good friend of our family, a very bubbly couple, Kwan & Denchai. My family and Kwan's first met in Osaka, Japan when I was on my Asian tour. It only took us few minutes to talk and exchange ideas and we all realized that we became comfortable to each other. And because Bangkok is included in my itinerary, Kwan invited us to give her a call as soon as we arrive in Bangkok. And we did! I remember Kwan's few words when she came to our hotel with her very loving husband, Denchai. "We will be your tour guide for the whole day and whole night.... and don't worry, it is for free," she mused. The gesture is very touching especially coming from new friends like Kwan and Denchai. True to her word, the couple did not leave us during the tour until late at night. We literally painted the town red.
Denchai is a quiet guy. Obviously, he lets Kwan do most of the talking. He is a man of few words.
