Im in Bangkok!! It pretty amazing here...everything is so different to home! I was amazed even at how pretty the airport was. we got taxis to our hotel where we were treated like princesses with the bell boy carrrying all 3 of our bags for us and everyone bowsto us!
We met a nice local on the first day who gave us an idea of what to watch out for so we dnt get scammed etc! then we walked into the town and tried to cross the hectic main road (where they have timers on their traffic ligts...how cool?!? ) and we came across some big old white fortress with canons sticking out of it :S we then had a main meal for 2quid and went to bed about 8 o clock...the jet lag completely caught up with us!!
Today was our first main day..we got up really early (again...jet lag) and had our free breakfast! then we got a boat ride down the canal to Wat Po temple which was STUNNING! actually never seen anything quite so amazing! we walked around there and visited the reclining buddha and had to take pur shoes etc off. Everything was covered in gold and there were monks all over the place. after that we walked around the markets and got the boat back up the river or canal whatever it is and sunbathed by the old fortress.
so all in all ive spent about 14quid and for that ive got :taxi transfers from the airport, paid tips, dinner, loadsa bottles of water, 2 boat rides, entrance to a temple and lunch today.... its sooo cheap here!!
Tonight we are getting the overnight train to a national park
