A day of travel ending with an expensive hotel in Bangkok

Well today we spent 90% of the day traveling as we had to catch the boat back to Phuket at 9am, then a bus from the pier in Phuket to the airport in Phuket and then we had a flight from Phuket to Bangkok. We didn’t arrive in Bangkok till close to 7pm and had to stay the night there as our next flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai wasn’t till 8am the next morning. After quite a long deliberation between the 5 of us we decided to grab a hotel close to the airport rather than take the 35 minute trip into the heart of Bangkok for a cheap room. It cost us $30 each for 2 rooms(1 double and 1 triple room) and although it was pretty expensive, most of us were glad to have a really nice comfy bed to sleep in for the night. The Irish guys were really happy cus the hotel had a huge gym so they were able to workout for an hour and a bit before it closed for the night. We didn’t do much the rest of the evening though, we ate dinner at a restaurant close by and spent about 2 hours on the internet before going back to the hotel. It was a much needed relaxing night after all the craziness of the last 10 days or so.
