TMBA 653: Bangkok, Thailand and DCBKK. They were excited.

podcast 37:51 | Download | spotify| stapler | itunes | Comment

The location-independent ‘post-COVID’ summer is beginning. We’re seeing more and more posts on the DC forum starting: ‘Who’s in Medellin this month?’, ‘Anyone in Poland or the Balkans?’.

Traveling and navigating new cities and regions is very much on the agenda today, which is a discussion for those planning to visit Bangkok, and Thailand in general, later in the year. And of course we are very excited for our first DCBKK event in three years, which will take place in October.

With that in mind, we asked Kyla Gardner and Jesse Schoberg – both have lived in Bangkok and elsewhere in Thailand, and attended a few DCBKK fairs – to share their thoughts.

We’ll cover: places to stay in Bangkok for great atmosphere and delicious food, where to consider going after DCBKK, how to manage your time at events like DCBKK, and much more:

“I don’t know whether to advise people to accept that you really just have to push yourself, you’re not going to sleep, you’re going to get tired, but it’s going to be worth it or to advise them to try and take some power naps…it’s so invigorating, so much fun.”

Listen to this week’s program and learn:

  • Where to stay in Bangkok to make your life easier and more enjoyable
  • After DCBKK: Chiang Mai or the South Islands?
  • Make connections at the event
  • Books to read before you go
