When we arrived in Bangkok we were greated by a lady from the i to i charity and taken to a guesthouse not far from the airport.
After the talk, myself, Jasmine and Konnie (our austrian friend) went out to a market in Bangkok. It reminded me a little bit of camden market. Full of colour and people. There was a lot of interesting foods available, lots of which i would probably run away from rather than eat! To get to and from th market we road a tuk tuk. This is basically a small cart which sounds like a motor bike with one bar at each side to keep you in. The drivers obviously like to have as many passengers in one day as possible and so to make more money they drive at what seems to be 100 mph. They also dare to take on moving cars and our driver decided to do a u turn infront of a moving car.
During the evening we went to Khao San Road, which is a famous road in bangkok lined with shops, restaurants and lots of people having a good time. We had a meal, which was lovely!!and then got on the overnight bus which would take us to the coast. This bus journey started at about 8pm and we got off at 5.30am. We managed to sleep a little as it was airconditioned and had reclining seats. After the bus was a 2 hour boat trip, which i loved. Luckily it wasnt too choppy and i managed to get some pictures of other boats in the harbour. It this point it was pretty cloudy and we experienced what thai rain feels like. It was really refreshing!
Bye for now!
