It's a long story why I went there so let's make it short. I decided to go to Thailand this summer.
Day 1 : cloudy-rainy
Flew with China airline. It was the cheapest. To Bangkok via Taipei. It took me about 6 hours (flying) in total to get to Bangkok.
I landed in Bangkok at 4pm. Pretty big airport and it's new. It was so weird that when I was waiting at the custom, I didn't see many asian people, I saw lots of western people. I've been to some asian countries but this was the first time seeing that much western people at custom. No wonder why it's a famous place for traveling/partying.
Went to Khaosan road by bus and walking around a bit, had dinner (Thai noodle!) and smoothie :) I was waiting for drinking fresh juice in Thailand!!
Our train to Chiang Mai was at 10pm. We got to the station about an hour before. Looong journey was waiting for us! 15 hour train ride to Chiang Mai. Though it was a night train so I could sleep most of it.
Got on the train just before it leaves. Our beds were close to the bathroom and it was stinky. Everytime people open the door, they don't close it! One girl who was next to the door always closed it with her foot.
My bed was tiny but enough space to sleep.
I so wanted to take a shower. Had to wait til we get to Chiang Mai :P I didn't even go to the bathroom. It was dirty lol
