Bangkok: First full day
Slept till 11am - totally exhausted after yesterdays flight. Me and Jill met an Aussie guy called Rob and we all set off to Wat Phra Kaew - often listed on the top things to see in the world. Have to say it was pretty impressive. Within the same grounds was the Grand Palace - totally amazing. Spent a couple of hours touring the sites before heading back to the hostel. Rob went off to watch Thai boxing and me and Jill went to meet up with her old family friends - Susie and Pete. They were staying in the VERY plush Hilton so we went and met them there and had a nosy in their room - which was incredible. There front wall was a window overlooking Bangkok - and the view was incredible. We took the hotel boat across the river to a really nice Thai BBQ restaurant by the river where we cooked our own food at our table on a big frying pot thing. Very tasty indeed and we had a really great night - Susie and Pete were totally lovely. After dinner me and Jill headed to Pan Pong - notorious sex district. We went to a couple of ping pong bars. Blimey - the things these girls do is quite incredible - bananna's, darts, knitting needles, ping pong balls.... pretty unreal and some very nasty madams too...quite an experience.
Totally top day!
