I just landed in bangkok, I went straight from the airport to Chatuchak Market. The market is a nice place to kill a Sunday afternoon in bangkok.
While walking down the streets of bangkok i definitely noticed the different culture that they showed, the part of the city i was in was the slum part of bangkok with little children running up to me trying to sell stuff just to make a quick dollar to feed their family. I ended up giving them a few baht just to help them, and me not speaking very good thai i did not understand what they were trying to say but in the end i knew the money would be going to a good cause. The culture was different there were a range of brothels and prostitutes standing along the streets both men and women looking to make a quick dollar. I knew bangkok still had some beautiful sites and temples to see yet.
After the walk down the streets of bangkok and Chatuchak market place I therefore got off at Ari BTS Station to have a second lunch at Lay Lao. This place has only been open for a few years and has received a mixed response from Bangkok's foodies. Personally I liked it a lot, and I would go back anytime, just for the grilled squid.
After an exhausting afternoon in bangkok i decided to head to my hotel in the inner city of bangkok as tomoz i was going to go see a muay thai fight and go rent a scooter to get around bangkok to help give me more of a chance of exploring it.
I got up late next day to go rent a scooter for me to get around as tonight i was going to go to spend a night seeing an authentic match with world-class fighters in Bangkok at Rajadamnern Stadium. Before i went to see the fight i decided to head around bangkok and visit the famous Lumpini Park and decided to visit, get a bite to eat and go for a bit of a shop at Khao San Road, i found endless bars, shops, street food, international restaurants, vendors, locals, and activity all day and all night. I also found that it is a popular spot on the weekend for Thais. I personally like the quieter Soi Rambuttri, but Khao San is an awesome place to sit outside and meet other travelers.
After a long day out i went back to the hotel to shower up and get ready to go to the stadium to see my first traditional thai fight, i couldn't wait. As i got the the stadium it was crowded with anticipated fans waiting for the fight to start the stadium was huge with almost a full house. With beer and traditional thailand food it ended up being a an amazing unforgettable experience
At the end of the fight i ended up getting a taxi back to my hotel to come back to a freshly made bed even more anticipated for tomoz as i was gonna go cruising around thailand river on a traditional thai boat.
The next few days in thailand were amazing and relaxing being able to get away from reality cruising down the rivers in thailand and travelling down to phuket for a few days to lay back down on the beach and take in all the amazing scenery the beaches and the ocean were amazing sitting on a lounge chair surrounded by such amazing culture meeting a few new people and teaching me a thing or two in thailand. Some of the many memories of this trip that will never be forgotten and will be sure to return back to this place soon.
My last days in thailand i returned from phuket to catch my flight back to australia it had been an amazing trip getting to visiting the four corners of the world and seeing all the cultures, destinations and the people which made the trip amazing it's gonna be a long trip back to sydney but can't wait to see all the family friends after many weeks away last thing to say is it is a unforgettable trip with many memories and friends that will never be forgotten.
