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 …
... were allowed inside but we saw a huge golden structure with an emerald Buddha at the top. At the end of the palace tour we were taken to a precious stone factory which included a look around what was boosted as the largest jewelery shop in the world.
After the tour had finished we had the chance to be dropped off back at the hotel or at the MBK shopping centre, we choose the later and spent the next few ...
... time so the flight went pretty quickly. Once we arrived at the airport, we went through another 3 security things before going to find Grandad and Kitti. It wasn't hard to find them since they were waving at us, we grabbed our bags and went to the taxi. It's really easy to get a taxi in Bangkok, they were everywhere and you just had to wave at them if you wanted to be picked up. We didn't have to wait long until we were at grandad's ...
... so map in hand, I determinedly tackled the bustling streets and the boiling sun to reach Bangkok's infamous Khao San Road. It certainly looks different in the daylight! I strolled up and down the market stalls, smiling fondly at the familiar sights and snapping multiple shots to send home to an envious Han and Em. I grabbed a couple more souvenirs, then wandered back up the road to the nearby Wat Pho; the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.

... had fresh prawn spring rolls, a lychee ice drink and some fresh mango. The food here is amazing! It's really fresh and you can taste so many flavours! It's also really nice to be able to eat street food as it wasn't really safe to eat in India. After shopping, we treated ourselves to a manicure and pedicure (that cost less than £10 for both!) and then headed out for a night on the town. We went to Khoisan Road, which is famous for nightlife in Bangkok. We saw ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCentre Point Sukhumvit Thong Lo Bangkok
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.
