Where I stayed

Once more, I took the overnight bus to Bangkok. I dont remember stopping at the border for passport control. When we arrived at Bangkok, it was still dar, they dropped us off in the middle of nowhere but there were taxis waiting for us! One of their stupid little tricks to milk some more cash out of the tourists. It seemed that they have a deal with the taxi drivers, who probably pay the bus company money so that the bus company drops the passengers in a predetermined (with the taxi drivers) point where no other taxis, moto-taxis or rail stations are near by. So you either take the price the taxi driver gives you or leave it and stay in the middle of nowhere with your belongings after a 8 hours or so of tiring trip.
