Arrived in Bangkok on 8 December, sweating hot at 9 in the morning. After our 21 hour, 2 flight trip and our first barter later, we were dumped in the famous Khao San Road. Here we slumbed it for 3 nights in Khaosan Palace Inn, which was bang in the middle of the strip. Tuk tuk rides, the SkyTrain and Subway to the Lucky Temple, Standing Buddha, Nana and Silom district before enjoying the Kings Birthday Celebrations taking place in front of the Grand Palace were our highlights as well as witnessing the lunar eclipse. Our first taste of the thai life for the next month with Singha, Chang and Sangsom Buckets by the gallon! Lovely!
After an early morning and a 2 hour taxi journey we have today arrived in Hua Hin which is a little fishing village. There's not much here but we are only here for a night and then getting the train in the morning to Chumphon and then the ferry to Koh Tao to do some diving where we will be for about 8 days.
Will be back again soon with an update on our next trip (and loads of photos)!
