A Day Around Town on a Mobike
With the introduction of Mobike bikes that you can scan to unlock, cycle around and then leave on the roadside for another person to pick up, we thought we’d find seven places to visit in a day, all on the saddle of a Mobike! Just don’t forget your smog mask…
Gopuek Godam (Breakfast)
If you agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then Gopuek Godam has a breakfast menu that you shouldn’t miss, serving Thai and Vietnamese-style dishes such as pan-fried eggs and a local take on pho.
