... time I was in Bangkok I was basically like "get me outta here!". Ok well it wasn't that urgent, but it was big, dirty and the air was smoggy, things that aren't high up on my list of must haves. This time I came to realize that the pace and amount of people and cars was a bit much, but where I was staying was so convenient and surrounded by sooooo many great places to eat, get massage and people watch that I found myself loving it.

Another awesome day in Bangkok! But first I wanted to mention yesterday's tour company, Asian Trails. It is a great company. We booked the tour easily online, and they left a message with the hotel to remind us of the pick up time the day before. Our tour guide and driver were both excellent, and the vehicle was very comfortable. We were kept supplied with cold bottled water and cold towelettes. Great service.
