It must have been the best overnight bus ride ive taken in Thailand yet.
There wasn't any dodgy smells coming out from the toilet air vents, and the driver managed to control the air conditioning temperature (a miracle)
13 hours after leaving Phuket i arrived at Bangkok at 6am.
All rooms at the hotel i went to were fully booked, but the receptionist said i could crash in a spare room until someone checks out.
I entered a room that looked like it was designed for Austin Powers (yeah baby, yeah)
The dimly lit room had mirrors everywhere, with a circular bed, and circular pink, orange, and yellow lights above the bed, with fake looking wooden wallpaper
In the corner of the room was a contraction that was a cross between a reclining leather chair,and a torture device. It seemed to have leg restraints either side of the chair!! (Dont ask me what this contracion is used for!)
Luckily i only had to spend a few hours in there before they found me a proper room to stay in!
The following day i took a bus trip to the former capital City of Thailand.
Ayutthaya. I visited nearby crumbling temple ruins managing to get some good statue shots.
For the following few days i spent in Bangkok making final preperations for my departure.
