... ticket system and entrance and exit systems were identical. We really had no plan but to just get off somewhere and walk around. We decided to get off at the stop that connects to the Chao Praya River Express (this is a water taxi). We decided to take the water taxi north to see the city of Bangkok. I finally found my skyscrapers and the business district! It was so pretty. I wish we would have stayed in this area. Eventually, the ...
... evening. By day there trying to sell you clothes and food. By nights there selling fried insects, fried scorpions even friend tarantulas. And obviously alcohol is everywhere.
You could be sat down at a bar and people would be trying to sell you Tasers on the road side and offering drugs. No need to hide it, they laid them out on the table. Considering there is a death penalty in Bangkok for being in possession of drugs I happily declined. We ...
... I am being given an involuntary massage and soon her elbows are digging into my neck and her thumbs prodding up and down my spine. There is no stopping her and I am in danger of sliding off the stool or worse - spilling my beer. Not a professional service and not free but done for a tip. By the time a lady with half her teeth missing starts on John he is all ready with a note to pay her to stop! It's all in good fun, though tinged with blackmail.
... us in Surin and took us to another bus station to get our bus to Bangkok. It took 6 hours, toilet stunk and there was weird Thai TV shows/music on. Once we arrived in Bangkok we got a taxi straight to our hotel. Traffic was awful and took around 45mins but was only charged 120 baht!

They were protesting against the proposal of the government to give amnesty to former prime minister Thaksin, who lives in exile.

Spartain looking rooms with exposed pipes, richard Rogers style on the celing. I had a doujble room which could have been quite small for two but there was a second bed. The main bed was between tow walls so you had to climb in from the bottom. Low lighting which was a bit difficult to see at times. No bedside lamp but I guess they're not expecting guests to be reading at bed time. Showers, toilet and basins are communal and likewise a bit dark. Otherwise very comfortable with excellent staff. Handy to the busy sauna which takes up the bottom three floors. this has steam and hot rooms, a swim ming pool, bars, cafe and restaurant all extremely affordable. On the third flooy you can have an excellent massage - genuine and no funny business - if you wnat that, go to the steam room or cruise area.
