We have only been here a few short days but we have already done so much as you can see from the photos, feels like we have been away for longer
After a pretty uneventful flight which we both managed to sleep on, we arrived on Thursday evening. Quick check in at hotel and then out to walk the Khao San Road, decided to savour the atmosphere and eat there aswell. The following morning at 6.30am, Lisa woke, which is a miracle at that time of the morning but we decided to get an early breakfast and hit the MBK Shopping centre to buy a camera. Took our first tuk tuk ride, crazy! Labyrinth of a place, loads of floors and hundreds and hundreds of stalls and shops. Got sunglasses, shorts, flip flops etc, the prices are ridiculous, would take a long time to spend 20 euro on sundries. In the afternoon after a siesta due to our early morning, Lisa went for a foot massage and Paul decided to have his head shaved to blend in with the Buddhist monks. Out on the town again, there was a rock bank playing around the corner so sat in a bar and listened for a while and then saw a few more bars before calling it a night in the wee hours..
Today we decided to walk to the Grand Palace which is really only a short walk but in the humidity, traffic conjestion and pollution, it felt like a trek especially as Lisa is not too comfortable crossing 6 lane roads of speeding Bangkok traffic without the comfort of a green man
Had a quick bite to eat and then back to the hotel for another massage, Lisa had relexology again and Paul had a Swedish oil massage but was quite indignant from behind the curtain when the Thai lady told him to take off his pants (no photos of that thank goodness)...
Ever sense Paul has been uploading photos for your viewing pleasure and Lisa had her hair done!! Off out now to celebrate our last night in Bangkok, will definitely be back to Thailand at some stage, hitting Sabah, Malaysia tomorrow, will keep in touch...
