Asia | South East Asia | Thailand | Bangkok – Touristy Thailand
To all you fabulous people out there….
What did you say about Bangkok, Darryl? Something a long the lines of ‘ it sucks you up, chews you up and spits you out!!!’ Yeah right, know the feeling. It’s hot, sweaty, smelly, polluted and crammed with millions of people and cars. The hotel I’m in is not bad – about a nought star, but at least it has aircon, and a fridge (Luxury!!!)
I have opened a bank account at the Thai Farmers Bank – pretty cool hey! So, now I don’t have any problems getting cash and avoid the 5% surcharge (cheeky buggers) that they seem to charge on all visa transactions. It was all really easy, banks worldwide should take note. Two nights here are enough for now. I will save sightseeing (and other dodgy things) in Bangkok for another visit. I leave tonight for greener pastures – Ko Samui. I have got a bus trip to the island and have already paid for 7 nights at a bungalow on the beach. Have emailed Paul – he runs a restaurant on the island – hopefully he reads his email regularly. I t will be great to have someone to show me around or at least give me some tips on what to do when I am not horizontal on the beach. Can’t wait to unpack my backpack and chill for a while. I am already sleeping loads which probably means I’m unwinding already – even if I am still in Bangkok!
If anyone feels a desperate need to talk to me Im staying at the Wanna Samui Cottage(dig the name), the number I have is 66 77 232 130.
