Bangkok, Thailand

A journal entry from: S/E ASIA March, 2011

After 20 hours of air-travel via Vancouver and Beijing, we finally arrived in Bangkok just before midnight (Tuesday morning) local time, however we had "lost" a day because it was still just 9am Monday morning BC time. So we were dealing with jet-lag, sleep-deprivation, and huge climate change -its over 30 degrees Celsius and about 80% humidity -We LOVE IT!! We took a river-bus down the "Chao Phraya" River to explore the Chinatown section of Bangkok -we have previously visited many of the Wats and Temples (see 2007 Blog). We will explore more of the historic sights tomorrow, and take the train to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand on Friday.
