Well the beginning of the 2 Beckys Travels was a bit of an adventure when we got dropped at the far end of Khao San Road in Bangkok to where our hostel, the D&D Inn, was. We got there about 6.30 so got settled in the room and then went for a wander around. Although the first time we attempted to go out we couldn't as it was totally chucking it down with rain!! Second time around was more of a success and we got out first taste of local food when we got some Pad Thai (fried noodles) and a spring roll from one of the street sellers on Khao San Road. Was delicious and only cost about 50p :-) Decided to have an early night as still tired from the flight.We had a bit of a lie in so was about lunch time before we ventured into the crazy city that is Bankok. We weren't sure which way to go so started wandering in the direction that we thought the Grand Palace was in. Found out from a Thai man that it was closed to the public that day and we were going in totally the wrong direction! After which we got our first taste of a tuk-tuk ride - not so bad apart from all the fumes! Got a really good deal from out nice tuk-tuk driver who took us to about 4 different places we wanted to see and all for 40Baht which is less than a pound! Saw the 45m Standing Buddha, a marble temple, fed some fish by the river which is meant to bring good luck and then went to the Golden Mount which has about 400 steps to the top.Did more sightseeing the next day, this time managing to find the Grand Palace and it was open. As it is a holy sight you need to be covered up to visit it. We had scarves to wrap around us but 'Tony' who was to become our tour guide said we couuldn't wear these. Cue us looking like complete tourists as we had to wear Haiwaiian shirts the whole way round!!!! Was even worse as it was a really hot day, but saw the palace and an emerald buddha with funny commentary from Tony. Then we got ripped on a boat ride that cost about 30quid to go around a local canal and then drop us off one stop down from where we got on. We then saw the huge Reclining Buddha which was impressive. All this touring around was tiring us out so we went back to the hostel and went in the rooftop pool! Onward to Koh Samui tomorrow.
