Where I stayed
Tong chai guest house
Bangkok in the light of day is slightly different, still nice but very quiet and extremely hot and the sun in not even out.
Took a quick walk round again, then headed to the train station on our first bus in Thailand, bus was still a bit of a banger in western standards but compared to India it was a dream, we got seats and everything, not one person standing and seats not in use as well. The drivers are just as crazy here, I think they forget they have breaks, after a bit of confusion as where about we had to get of and with the help from and man and women we got to the train station.
A helpful tourist information was set up right outside and got told exactly where we needed to go, got the ticket, yep as easy as that, doesn't feel like real traveling having it this easy
The station had its own food court with some amazing food, Phil got a sausage wrapped in a cheese pastry and bacon cheese pastry with a really sweet glaze, I went for the really healthy option and had a croissant and a glazed donut, ow it was soooo good!
The train was ok sitting with all Thai people, we got a seat which was nice, but it was so hot and the breeze from the window didn't seem to help.
Got to our destinaton after about two hours, straight into a tuk tuk and to our guest house, how how can it be this easy!
Room was clean and cheap so ticked most boxes one down point the toilet is a hole in the floor!
We went for a walk and found the bicycle rent place and got two bikes, the lady was so nice and helpful, we went back to the train station across the river bikes in tow, got our ticket sorted for tomorrow nights train, then cycled around this side of the river and saw lots of different wats and buddas which was pretty cool.
Had the most amazing shower ever, only because we had both been sweating ridiculous amounts all day, and with the moisture in the air its the only thing that cools you down for more than two minutes.
