Quick journey to our hotel which is located away from the city; it's maybe a bit too far from everything but we have our next hotel booked for Tuesday and that's in the perfect location. The hotel itself is great though; big room with air con (THANK GOD) and the staff are really nice and helpful.
After we settled in our room we decided to go out for a walk around and just as we did the heavens opened and it hammered down - monsoon style.
We went to the Sunday market which is extremely large and really popular with tourists and locals. We left the hotel at around 9am and the heat was crazy and just kept getting hotter.
We've had loads of advice from everyone back home and they've all said how cheap Thailand is... It's ridiculous. A bottle of water cost 20p and dinner for last night was £7 (the portions are not small).
We also went to Khao San Road which is an infamous backpackers hang out. We wandered through the market and had a look around a little temple and then had lunch, we'll definitely be heading back there once we've moved into the city!
Today we got strung in to going on a Tuk Tuk, it was fun but the guy driving kept taking us to places we didn't want to go so he could get commission!!
Tonight it looks as though we're heading into Siam to watch the football!
