Tales from Thailand: Bangkok

I’ve been back from my wonderful Thailand holiday for almost two weeks and it’s been straight back into work so I’m only getting around to telling you all about it now.

Of all the places we went, Bangkok was probably my least favourite place in Thailand, but it was still great.. It was so busy all of the time, just walking through a market was a nightmare. And the traffic! Absolutely manic. It took quite a while to get anywhere, but it wasn’t too bad as we could have a look around. In total we spent around 5 days there; 3 at the start and 2 at the end.

During our first full day we had a day of sightseeing and it was incredible. We took the water taxi to see a temple with the steepest steps I have ever seen. The walls were decorated with china plates and it was beautiful.

We also went to see the Grand Palace which was just a little away from the river. Although the current King doesn’t live there, it is used for official events. I couldn’t get over just how beautiful the buildings were. Can you imagine living there?!

This is still only the first day… Are you still with me?! My favourite way to get around was by Tuk Tuk – I love those things! In Bangkok they’ll take you around for really cheap, but the deal being they’ll take you to a tailors and a jewelers (they get fuel coupons if you stay for over 10 minutes). Will actually ended up buying a suit so it was all good actually. Our driver also took us to a smaller temple which was by a school.

And here’s that dreadful Bangkok traffic to end my first post. Come back tomorrow for more tales from Thailand.
