1st chance we've had to get on the internet since we got here so time for a quick update and a few photos from our first couple of days away...
We've had 4 days in Bangkok, and tonight we meet our tour and leave for Siem Reap in Cambodia first thing tomorrow morning. We've been in Banglamphu for the last 3 days in the Viengtai hotel, a couple of streets over from the Kho San Road which is possibly the most mental half mile strip of land we've ever walked down! The hotel itself was pretty good, weather has been stifling. We were expecting thunderstorms having listened to weather forecasts but our first couple of days were 36 degress torture with humidity like we've never known! The hotel had a swimming pool so yesterday we took the chance to chill out and have a bit of a dip when from nowhere the skies blackened, thunder rumbled, lightening struck, and raindrops the size of golf balls pounded us in the pool!
Food and drink have been awesome. We've mainly been eating in the resaurants and getting a 2 course meal each plus 3/4 drinkgs for 15-20quid. We've stayed away from the english stuff and dove straight in to Thai cuisine.
Hope all is well back in the UK. Will update again soon when we get the chance. X
