BimBim the busy Bangkok gal ...

BimBim enjoying Nangyuan Island, Gulf of Thailand.
I sense a real energy and passion for life with 27-year-old media relations and client executive, Jittrarat ‘BimBim’ Likhitkiatikul.

She's a busy, busy, busy Bangkok gal, putting in long hours at ScottAsia Communications ( But then, when work's done for the day, it's off to the movies, or shopping, or maybe just home (which is located near the Chaopraya River) to read a good book.

Bangkok has always been Bim's life. "I was born in Bangkok, one of the busiest cities in the world," she says. "But for me, Bangkok has its own charms. You will never have the same feeling everyday you wake up in this city. You can find and enjoy almost everything you want for your life here."

She's noticed a lot of changes in Bangkok in the past 20 years. "However, you can always find places to escape here. You can always feel the peace of Bangkok along the river-side."  

Her favourite part of Thailand, though, is the southern part. " I love it, especially the Andaman side like Phuket and Krabi. There are plenty of fantastic islands, beaches, cheap seafood, etc. People there are kind and have good heart. Every time I go there, I feel like I have escaped to another part of the world. I like to jump from the speedboat and snorkel with little fish around me. It is an awesome experience."

BimBim's top 5 from Bangkok and beyond ...

1/ Jatujak (JJ) market: "The biggest market in Thailand. I’m always happy when I can get stuff from fashion to pet snacks at very best price."
2/ Samsara Café & Meal, Bangkok: "A stylish wooden house decorated with painting and sculpture created by Thai artists. It is located at the river side at the back of Wat Pathumkongka, Song Wat Rd. This is the place where you can enjoy cups of tea or coffee in the afternoon. Or get some beers or wines after the sunset."

3/ Nangyuan Island: "A tranquil island in the southern part, located between Chumporn and Suratthani. There are only you, sea, and sand. A great place to escape from the world and freshen up your mind. 

4/ Baan Som Tum, Bangkok: "If you want to get the real taste of Som Tum and other E-Sarn dishes but not dare enough to try the street side kiosk, this is the place where you should go. On Sathorn Rd., in soi Pra Mual (next to Bangkok Christian School). Another branch in on Rama 5 Rd.You must try it!"

5/ Fisherman's Village, Koh Samui: "You won’t feel that you live on an island when you are in Samui. Samui is an island where you can have everything you need to make a perfect holiday. Go to Fisherman's Village if you like to get the feeling of islander. There are plenty of stylish boutique hotels and theme restaurants. A beachfront villa or bungalow would be a great choice for accommodation."
