We've arrived!! After a very long journey, 2 flights, a busride and 18 hours later we got to our hotel the Viengtai hotel in Banglampu, Bangkok Thailand at about 1.30pm local time.
To our surprise its a lovely hotel and considering it cost us 25 pounds for a 3 night stay i have to say im impressed! We dumped our bags and decided to go check out the local area. A 3 minute walk down the road and we found ourselves on the famous Khao San Road, a big hotspot for travellers from every walk of life!! Its one long road of stalls shops and bars selling everything you can imagine, i couldnt possibly make it to the end of the road without buying something, 2 pairs of shorts to be exact...i needed them!!!
After a walk arounf we decided to get a drink.We stopped at one of the many bars and got a couple of cokes and watched the world go by, however the "world" (and his brother) wanted to sell us lighters, maps and some sort of wooded frog!?
Anyway we were starting to get hungry so we brought some noodles from a street seller for 15 bhat (25p) and just walked around eating them.
About 5ish (local time) we decided to head back to the hotel for a shower and then come back out and treat ourselves to a Thai massage after all our travelling....didnt quite make it as we fell asleep and slept for 18 hours solidly...tired....much!!!!
Anyway we got up the next day for breakfast, i had eggs ( a little snotty for my liking but cant afford to be fussy!!) and today we are going to try and go to the Golden Palace and the Zoo.
