Bye Bangkok

The neon lights were a blur as they raced through the traffic, swerving and dodging all vehicles on the road – pretty much sums up the group of 5 Tuk Tuks that took us to Khao San Road last night. The adrenaline was certainly pumping! 

 

Khao San Road was crazy. Live bands, Karaoke and DJ’s were spred along the straight the half a mile strip littered with stools offering everything from ‘Ping Pong’ Shows (use your imagination), deep fried insects to T-Shirts. We had one beer, soaked up the atmosphere and people watched – lady boys galore!

 

  This morning we caught a minibus at 08:00 and headed for Damneon Saduak Floating Market   about an hour away from Bangkok. We took to the water at speed taking a longboat to the market before transferring to paddle boat. The canal was full with stalls on each side and boats selling hats, noodle soups, which we had for lunch and deep fried bananas and packed with tourists in boats too – imagine the M25 in rush hour. 

   
   

  
This afternoon we headed to MBK Shopping Mall – José Mourinho was spotted there last week! I added Buriram United’s football shirt to my large collection of shirts. 

  
  
Tonight we are heading to the south and Samui bound on a sleeper train. 

Bangkok you’ve been a blast!
