Today we chilled by the pool most of the time, it was really hot so we sat on the swinging chairs in the shade. We got ready about 4.30 and went to a restaurant I had found on the internet. It was called Thai Pling and had really good reviews so we thought we would treat ourselves to a tasty meal. Well you can call the evening a disaster, we got taken to the restaurant by Tuk Tuk which was cheap enough. Had our meal, starters spring rolls & crispy pork (very nice) mains Adam had noodles with chicken & mushrooms. ( he enjoyed it ) I ordered pad Thai chicken but I didn't realise it had seafood in it, I couldn't even tell you what bits of fish where in it so I had to pick at the chicken and noodles. After dinner we got a Tuk Tuk & to cut a very long story short he basically took us to the wrong hotel 3 times before finally getting us back to the Novotel. It cost us around £9.00 and we were in the Tuk Tuk for 1 hour 20 mins!! We were annoyed because we were only an 8 min ride from the hotel when we got in the Tuk Tuk, the driver clearly had no idea where he was going & took us to the other side of Bangkok. We did have the chance to get out but the driver still wanted the full £9.00 so we thought we may as well stay on it as it was night we wanted to be safe. We feel as so we have seen the whole of Bangkok now!
We went back to the room & I managed to Skype Mummy Abbott as she was online. After looking back at the restuaruant on google we then realised we didn't even eat at Thai Pling & that the first Tuk Tuk driver just dropped us of at some random outside restaurant. The reviews said that it was a good place to eat as all Thai people go there and they only eat the best food, when we sat down there was lots of Thai people. We had no idea we weren't at Thai Pling, so lesson learnt tonight is no more Tuk Tuk rides & we are going to eat in the hotel for the next 2 nights as the food is really nice & still a great choice of Thai food.
