Woke up with the sun just creeping over the mountains in the north of Thailand - beautiful scene. Entered Chiang Mai just 2.5hrs later than expected!
Siem Reap, Cambodia to Bangkok - taking a whole 55mins in the air! Even got fed and managed a quick nap! :) Bit of a bizarre set-up to reach Hua Lampong train station - took a train and then walked (fully loaded in roasting smog) up and down random pavements and across train lines to seek out the subway - eventually made it to the station. Caught my overnight train to Chiang Mai. Very interesting watching the Thai lady set-up all the bunk beds on our carriage - she reminded me of a well-built Russian - not the typical Thai frame! I have to say I've never felt so cold on any public transport in my life! I suppose the A/C blasting keeps any foot/BO smells to their lowest!
