Bangkok

A journal entry from: Southeast Asian Adventures!

It was a long overnight journey from Ko Lanta to Bangkok to meet Alan. I arrived in Bangkok at 5am to find out all of the guest houses around Khao San were full. I drank a million cups of instant coffee, people watched for 4 hours and read Catch-22 until a room was finally available.

Alan arrived in Bangkok Feb. 7th and we decided to explore the city for a few days. We spent some shopping on Khao San, visited the Grande Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun. Wat Pho was definitely my favourite, with the huge gold reclining Buddha. Wat Arun was also very beautiful, and the river taxi ride there was a lot of fun.

Due to my expiring visa and Alan's peanut allergy, we decided it was time to get out of Thailand and head to Cambodia!
