Bangkok, city of smells, hot hot heat, amazing street food, pretty lady boys, noodle soup breakfasts, speeding Skytrain, seedy red light districts, swank hotels, and did I mention humid hot heat?
We had saved up some errands for Bangkok as anything and everything you could ever want is available. For cheap. For us, that meant haircuts, sidewalk seamstress, and even the dentist. A nice break from touring and we got to experience the streets of Bangkok like a local.
We did also get out to see the main tourist sights of Bangkok: a hot and quick tour of the Grand Palace, Wat Po, Khao San Road (had to walk through for the spectacle), the river, and some fab rooftop bars, where we contemplated a city of 8-15 million people, depending on who you ask.
We also had a great time meeting up with Jen’s friend from an internship in Bangkok, who showed us artsy hipster Bangkok, including an awesome crab broil dinner at a fun restaurant! So fun to catch up with him.
Jen was in heaven to be back in Thailand, her favorite place. Plumeria flowers, thai food, thai smiles, and incredible scenery. Speaking of, onto the beaches!
