I have made it Chiang Mai after going on the over night train that I thought would never end! It was an hour late and finally left at 8.30 last night then didn't get in until 12.30 today - it was meant to be a 13 hour trip max!
Bangkok was good - busy and hot! Very hot! I met a girl at breakfast and we went for a walk around the city. We were on the street for no longer than 5mins before a local came up to us and looked at our map then told us the best places to go and she bundled us into a tuktuk and sent us on our way! They are all so helpful! We saw the several temples and several Buddha's - so many names to remember! And just as we had seen all them another local did exactly the same thing and we were off again! It was good fun! We then went back to the hotel and I checked out and went to the one where my tour started from - very nice place!
That night we went out to dinner with the group - nice group, only 5 of us but more joining us on the way. The next day we went for a canal long boat trip, saw the reclining Buddha and the Grand Palace! So cool! Will post photos soon. Then that night jumped onto the never ending train!
I am off to see another temple in 5 mins so, will update you all more when I have time!
