... baht (about 80p)...we should have known this was all too good to be true. WE were dropped off at a pier in the old streets of Bangkok where they were offering us a tour on a boat down the river for 2000 Baht - 37 pounds.

For those who didn't, if you were endowed with a derrier like Kim Kardashian you'd be fine on this journey! It was short term pain for long term gain however as the views from the train are stunning and to visit an area like the 'Death Railway' or The Bridge on the ...
