So far so good......
We have been in bangkok for two days, just trying to adjust to the new time zone and weather. Today we went on a tour of the Grand Palace and temple and for a boat ride along the canal. Everyone in our tour group seems awesome. So far the food seems ok, managing to find veggie options. Our hotel is right in the heart of the backpacker district and next to KhaoSan road so at night its very lively, lots of street stalls and open air bars lit up by lanterns and fairy lights.We are constantly being asked if we need a tuktuk or a hand made suit (also one offer of a ping pong show) but otherwise Bangkok is a lot of fun, a blend of temples and markets and very busy!
Tonight we will be on the overnight train to CHiang Mai so 16 hours, plenty of time to get to know everone and catch up on our sleep!
