Arrived into Bangkok after quite a bumpy ride and thankfully found our hostel and a room quite easily. It was raining when we arrived but still 30 degrees! Luckily our room has air conditioning.
We went to Jim Thompson's house today which is a museum of traditional Thai houses whihc an America Jim Thompson made into his home. He then mysteriously disappeared and his house became a museum. It was very cheap- just remember to bring proof that you are under 25 ( its half price).
We bought our train tickets up north to go and see Cat and we leave on monday night and will be there till thursday before heading back down. Looking forward to see cat and the kids that she teaches.
Today we went with the two guys to the grand temple and Wat Arun to must sees. We went on the ferry which was am experience. It was very crowded but great to see Bangkok by boat and very cheap. The grand palace was so beautiful and so colourful with gold buildings covered in coloured glass and stones. We saw the emerald buddah which was awe inspiring.
Wat Aru was also worth seeing, but just as we left it we were caught in a massive rain storm which soaked us to the bone.
