Write for us

The Streets of Bangkok is open to guest posts on daily life, local culture, interesting activities/attractions, and anything else that seems relevant. Want to tell us about your corner of the city, which streets are good to wander along, where to get the best pavement-corner som tam? Fancy writing a walking tour of your favourite district, reviewing a venue, or talking about an event you're involved in? Drop us a line!

Stuff that doesn't often get much coverage is especially welcome. If the The Streets of Bangkok has a mission statement, it's to celebrate the ordinary, and seek out the extraordinary in unexpected places.

If you have an idea for a post, please email thestreetsofbangkok [at] gmail [dot] com. If your idea is a little different from the suggestions above, try it anyway - TSOB is open to all sorts of stuff. With that in mind, there are a few caveats. Guest posts should be:

Well-written. This blog aims to celebrate and inform, so posts should be engaging. Creative language is welcome, but is just one option - simple and clear writing is good too.

Real. This isn't for advertising. For example, writing about a volunteering project or interesting event that you're involved in is fine, as long as you have something informative/interesting to say about it. Writing about a place or event solely for the purpose of getting customers is not.

Respectful. This is vital. Once more, this blog aims to celebrate. Disparaging remarks against any group of people, whether for their ethnicity, culture, sex, orientation, gender identity or disability, are entirely unwelcome. Not even in the guise of "edgy" "humour". Plenty of English-language venues for writing about Thailand tolerate that crap to some degree, so if you have something to say along those lines kindly take it to the nearest expat forum and don't come back.

Still with me? Email any questions to thestreetsofbangkok [at] gmail [dot] com. I look forward to hearing from you, and will endeavour to answer all email as quickly as possible (unless you send me blatant advertising or anything hateful, in which case I will happily ignore you).
