Travel Blogs from Bangkok
So finally after hours of travelling we have made it to our first destination. We arrived in Bangkok yesterday and after a 25 min taxi ride to near our hostel we handed over our first Thai Baht (350) equivilant to about 5 pound. Bargin.
Anyway we arrive at this swanky hotel with porters who open the taxi door. Han and i don't really look …
... Jakarta next morning early to see friends for the weekend, and then come back to pick up his new
clothes. Now there is an original chap, that son of ours, having his tailor in Bangkok!
We enjoyed the good food and the views over the hustle and bustle of the little boats on the water. The staff even offered a spray against mosquito-bites! Service is no vain word.
... and restaurants. I bought a new bag as my old one is on it's last legs. We went to a Indian for tea and was given a unusual mixture of cardamom and aniseed to freshen out breath after the meal. We haven't got much planned for tomorrow and are planning to enjoy a day around the pool. We have had a fantastic holiday but are looking forward to being on our way home tomorrow. Jill ...
... etc throughout Vietnam and Cambodia so the only privacy you get is going to the toilet! Got other friends passing through Bangkok for flights so will be good to catch up with them. Other than that, can't wait for Sydney!
P.s had a good old 'backpacker scrape' today to get rid of the grime that builds up under the flipflops. We are now grime free!
... English. With the aid of the taxi driver, his mobile phone and locals who were keen to help we eventually managed to buy a non refundable ticket but we later found out it was for the wrong day. Oh well I know what we will be doing tomorrow. Shopping amongst the protesters was interesting. They only protest some of the time and otherwise go into the shopping malls with their whistles and t-shirts ...
How has this hostel rated in the past?
TravelPod Member ReviewsDiscovery Lodge Bangkok
Discovery Lodge has addiquit facilities and the rooms are spacious. We have a double bed a tv room and bathroom all in an appartment all to our selves which is nice. Only downfall is it is a bit of a trek from the centre of Bangkok so for our first night was a little daunting as we appear to me some of the only forigners around this area. All good though.
