Travel Blogs from Bangkok

What a journey this has been.
Words cannot describe the amazing things I have seen and the experiences I've had over the past 5 months...

A nice, clean, decent budget hotel. Caters to Asian guests. Rooms are tidy, if old, sheets were new and clean. Mattress was the firmest I've ever slept on. Aircon was noisy but effective. The bathroom did not smell. Breakfast was same each day, but enough variety to satisfy. I supplemented it with khanom krok from a street vendor around the corner. Staff was friendly, although the doorman gave up very quickly trying to get me a taxi when I checked out.
