After a long flight which i only got about 1 hours sleep i got into bangkok around 5pm and got to my hostel around 6pm. Was pretty tired when i got there and i did have an idea of trying to get some sleep but i decided to go out with my room mates instead. So a sky train journay later i was having beer and bowling, did do too bad at the bowling and at around 10pm we all headed back to the hostel.
At the hostel i decided to try out the bar and for 100bht (just over 1 pound) we had a big bottle(s) of Red Horse. A couple of those later and me and irish guy and an english guy heard a rumour of even cheaper alcohol elsewhere at a soon to become legandary place called cheap charlies. A 20 min walk later and at around 11pm we found the places hidded down a side alley, it was a small funky shack and it was only 60bht(90p for a double scotch and coke or 80bht for a big bottle of beer. We stayed there for a while before heading to another bar to try some yager bombs before retiring to the hostel at 1am.
We then played pool and listined to music till 6am, unfortunatley i had a tour booked for 7.45am. Which i did still manage to go on, although 3 hours sleep in 2 days is not recommended. The tour was of the outskirts of bangkok and it lasted all day, i got to do some thai cooking, went on a boat trip, visited an orchid farm and met several Thai people of various crafts.
