The Bangkok Trap

THAILAND | Wednesday, 7 January 2009 | Views [789] | Comments [1]

After our last visit to Bangkok when we barely left the Khao San Road area and drank most of the time we resolved that this time was going to be different, we would see the sights, tick all the boxes in the attractions section of the book and then head off to Cambodia. We managed the first day (after my last blog post) and headed off to the Moon Bar (on the 59th floor)and wandered around Siam Center.

After getting a very expensive meal at Siam Discovery and trying (in vain) to buy some compression sacks we headed back to Khao San Road and back to the room about 10:30 pm. This is when the determined plan falls apart, I wasn't tired and rapidly got bored of being sat in the room. So i figured I'd go out and have a beer of two, come back and sleep getting up early the next day to visit the Grand Palace, etc.

After a few beers in Center Khao San I headed back, only to get waylaid by spring rolls and a VW bar, cue finally getting leaving only when the rooster began to crow, and then sleeping for a frankly ridiculous 14.5 hours! Basically totally writing off yesterday! Ah well, we'll try and escape Khao San Road tomorrow for Cambodia, having once again failed to visit the Grand Palace!

For now I think i'll just see what Alan's up to and head off for a beer, or maybe two.....
