We’ve been in Bangkok for three days now and it’s been fun being back. I've blogged about Bangkok twice before (if you're looking for further information check out my first entry from 2011). There were only two reasons I decided to come back. One was for Alberto as he had never been, and secondly it serves as a hub to move onto Malaysia. It's a chaotic city and most people will only want to visit for a couple of days. On a side note, I must admit I'm finding it a little difficult time wise to keep up with blogging so you may have noticed by now I'm relying more on pictures than words. Thank god I hear you cry. Some of my earlier entries have definitely been on the longer side!
Sightseeing has been a little light as we’ve been enjoying the night time activities instead. Jeanette (aka USA #2) from Xi’an and Shanghai also happened to be here as the same time as us so we’ve been partying it up with her.
On Thursday night we took part in a little compulsory sing-song (as is now tradition)…
Friday evening was spent at the Khao San Road, Thailand’s version of Temple Bar, only much wilder. You'll spend your evening telling the locals you don't want a Tuk Tuk, lady massage or a ping pong show. And being asked repeatedly if you want laughing gas or a spider to eat.
The Macerena was in full force again...
We discovered that Blackberry phones still exist
The Thais like their drinks large
Tequila shots bring you good luck and fortune
There are always fun randomers to chat with
Getting drunk is compulsory...
Somehow, we managed to get ourselves out of bed today to visit the Grand Palace. No visit to Bangkok is complete without it. The palace was built in the 18th century during King Rama 1st's reign and is one of the most impressive architectural attractions you can find in Asia.
That concludes 11 nights in my favourite Asian country. Tomorrow we fly to Kuala Lumpur for the first leg of Malaysia. I'm looking forward to getting back into uncharted territory. Kop Khun Khrap Thailand, we love you long time!
