So Thailand appears not to be for tall people but it is for the lazy! You can taxi or tuktuk anywhere! There are any number of very friendly people offering directions and transport! My room is just off kho San road which is the main tourist trap...you can tell any sort of t shirt, little trinket, tarot, suits tailored you could ever wish for is here! You can eat from worldwide fast food chains and chocolate covered bugs for the brave (not me I'm afraid)! Today I have walked for miles around the main sights of the city. In so many ways I have been reminded of India...temples, statues, flower garlands and the smells!
It's a Buddhist country predominantly and the temples are very peaceful. I have visited around 5, all beautiful with gold shimmering decorations that I am sure my photos don't do justice. I am off on the tour tomorrow so have to venture to China town...then I am off to Cambodia.
