OK, day 2. Breakfast was a real surprise - a huge buffet offering Thai specialities, cereal, ham, cheese, breads, eggs (boiled, scrambled), fruit, etc and amazingly bread and butter pudding with custard! (Warning, such a vast buffet can be dangerous for those who lack self control when it comes to food resulting in an uncomfortable 'overeaten state').
After breakfast we proceeded to get a tuk tuk to the river (it should be noted tuk tuks and there drivers are unpredictable beings and have been known to take you from A to B via a route comprising of A C D E F G to B, you get the picture, therefore not advisable if your in a hurry - take a taxi, they are cool, safer, friendlier and not too expensive). Finally we reached the river from where we took a ferry up to the temples.
Got the fab sky rail back to Silom - a good opportunity to get a different view of this amazing city.
