We have finally arrived in Thailand, the country that I wanted to visit the most! (Aaron). On the flight over to Bangkok we were sitting next to burping Barbra - A middle aged Asian woman who burped about nine times throughout the flight..After the third loud burp I (Aaron) put my earphones in but could still hear her over my music! Ha ha. Just the …
... Because it was in
stone, rather than covered in gold leaf, it had a more organic and ancient feel
Then we boarded a river boat for our buffet lunch and the
two plus hour trip back to Bangkok. The
buffet was fabulous and Bill and I stuffed ourselves and paid for it throughout
the night but were ok by the morning. I
loved cruising down the river and seeing the shanties bordering the river with

We crossed the river on our motorbike and climbed up to the top of Monkey Mountain to the Hanuman temple where Alice got attacked by monkeys. We finished our tour with a trip to an old chapel on top of a hill. From the top the boulders were precariously balanced and dotted around the landscape, it was something else. ...

After a bit less than an hour exploring Wat Saket, I crossed the Ong Ang Canal and walked onto the grounds of Wat Ratchanatda, home to the unique Loha Prasat (Metal Palace) with 37 spires.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Thong Lor is a busy area in Bangkok where there are mid/up market bars, restaurants, shops, mixture of stalls, lots of bridal shops, hotels and busy roads.
Thor Lor wasn't the best of areas we have been to in Bangkok due to the bars being a little out of our price range but there looked to be quirky, interesting bars/ restaurants, it was still enjoyable being in the lively, vibrant streets of Bangkok.
We did stumble across a great little restaurant called Sit And Wonder doing a lunch special though and I (Aaron) had my favourite meal of my travels so far..Red Thai Curry! Oh wow, it was so good! It was nice also to have food in a restaurant as we haven't experienced that since New Zealand!
After walking up and down the street taking it all in, it was time to head back for the evening.
