Thought I better drop a line and say I arrived in Thailand OK with only a day's delay (more on that later...) My second trip to Thailand and am having some deja vu experiences and some new ones. The former being the floral smell in the humid air and latter is the excellent airport train, cutting down the time to travel to the city from over an hour …
... is where we stayed for the rest of the evening. We had some amazing Thai food and had some drinks in really cool bars.
Such a fantastic first day, however we are now exhausted so going to get our head down ready for our flight to Phuket tomorrow morning.
I hope you enjoyed our first blog edition and we will be in touch in a couple days.
We have attached some photos below.

... charge me £3 outrageous, then my room as no signal so have to move but they pack and carry everything, so no big deal and I got my £3 back, you can take the guy out of Yorkshire but not etc etc. 11th Nov: Have a lay in as there's not really a lot to do in the city that I didn't do last night, booked out at 12 and took my bag to Cuckoos nest for safe keeping. Got myself a foot massage and its never been right since, they try and bend your foot always when your ...
... br> - Canal tour: I am sure there is a much cheaper way of doing this but we got on a boat with another random couple and had a one hour ride through some of Bangkok's khlongs. Rows and rows of shack-like 'buildings' with people going on their daily activities just by the river...fishing and bathing included. More than the obvious poverty we were particularly taken by how the Chao Praya river (as polluted as it is) plays such a massive role ...
... you the palace is closed, but hadn't bargained on getting there and finding that it was in fact, very closed. All because of the Queen's birthday. Still. So instead I went for a bit of a wonder, and a bit more of a wonder, and yet more wondering. Not lost, you understand, just wondering.

TravelPod Member ReviewsLilac Relax-Residence Bangkok
Everything was great - from the graciousness of accepting I would need to cancel the first night as delayed by a winter storm in Regina, hence missing my flights to Bangkok, to the relief that they were at the airport waiting for me after I cleared Customs, to holding my luggage the next day past their pick up time. I was so disappointed I could only stay one night due to my missed connections as they were full the second night I could have stayed so I moved to the Phoenix Hotel across the lane. The Lilac is a beautifully furnished hotel in lilac and white decor, offered excellent breakfast with a choice of breads for toast, eggs and the most delicious coffee along with relaxing music in the dining room. Cannot wait to stay there again!
