Thailand. I don't think I specified enough just how much I loved this country. It's not just the food, or the immense number of places you can go to, but also the nice people. The mere 24 hours we spent was definitely not enough.
Bangkok is one of those rare 'cities' you should visit. You know how, in most countries, you're not really interested in seeing the city area. You most likely wanna go directly to the beach and get the vacation started. Bangkok is not one of those cities. It's a culture shock every time, and a great starting point to any trip in Thailand. We got up early in the morning and, with our itinerary, went about seeing Wat Phra Kaew (Grand Palace). Upon getting there, we were told that it wouldn't open for another hour and a half, and the security very kindly called us a tuktuk to take us to the pier to go boating (which was not on our itinerary). After the awesome ride, which included seeing local life along the river and purchasing some things with the floating market sellers, we headed back to Grand Palace - only to be told by another kind man that it actually wouldn't be available to public until two hours more. And so he called us another tuktuk to take us to some other temples around the city - all cheap and free I might add, and haggled with the driver for us. Two hours only cost us 150THB, which is amazing!
We never did get to Grand Palace...hahaha...something for next time, I suppose. After that we chilled back at our hotel, W Bangkok, and only went out again to specifically visit one of the sets of the Hangover 2 - Lebua Tower, Sirocco Bar. My advice? The view is a definite must-see. I suggest coming earlier, so you could have a better seat, oh and the drinks are expensive, so get one, take pics, and then go - unless of course you have the budget then by all means it is an effing great view for cocktails!
Finally, the night ended at Calypso Cabaret, where we saw beautiful lady boys lip-synching and copying everyone from Beyonce to Marilyn Monroe.
Sigh, I am in vacation withdrawal again. It was so sad to go, but I have so much more pictures! So I'll see you soon
