The first part of this journey didn't give me a safe feeling, but neither does this second part. Not because of the bus or the road, both are in splendid condition, but because of the driver. This guy is a kind of Ralf Schumacher on speed! How fast can a minibus go? When I look at the dashboard I see the needle tremble beyond the 170 mark...
Touchdown is 2,5 hours after our departure. Must be a new record. We decide to head for the New Siam Riverside. It's more expensive than the New Siam II, where we stayed before, but this hotel has a great pool next to the river. From the 5 days we have still left before we will be flying back to Holland, we want to spend 4 days somewhere on a beach, so we can only stay 1 day in Bangkok. Exactly the time we need to do some serious shopping.
