Wednesday, January 10, 2007Hey guys! Came back from Bangkok yesterday and had an absolute ball! It felt really strange though, because it felt like a second home to me (or if you count Dubai, a third home), only I couldn't speak the language. When I was 6 years old, I lived here for 3 months with my mum and brother, and met up with the relatives, and didn't really appreciate the place, but 16 years later it's much more interesting than I remember. And the people are so sweet!
The first day we were there, I didn't really do much. It was pretty much sleep, eat, get a massage, sleep some more. The next day we had to fly to Hong Kong and back. We couldn't go out, which is a real shame, because I've heard great things about the city, and we had a whopping 5 hours at the airport, so we just spent it in the Airline lounge sleeping on massage chairs eating free buffet food. Being a Flight Attendant is hard work!
When we arrived in Bangkok, I signed up for a tour, and had the best time.
The speed boats that took us to the floating markets in Damnoen Saduak.
Some of the items on sale
The floating markets at Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. It was very surreal, and you wondered how they managed to pile on all those souveneirs onto a tiny rickety boat. There were also quite a few boats that were selling Tom Yum soup, and cooking it right there with their own heat source on the boats. 1 comments
