Day 1 - doing the tourist bit

sunny 33 °C

Hello!

Bangkok is one crazy, hot and exciting city!

We brought a day ticket to hop on and off boats along the river Chao Phraya in Bangkok, a visit to an enormous flower and produce market started the day. Mountains of chillies, ginger and coriander lined the narrow alleyways with more flower heads and petals than you can imagine. A stop for a strong thick almost chocolate tasting coffee before upriver to the infamous Khao San Road. Busy, brash, backpacker heaven, every nationality catered for in the bars and clubs that line the road. Stalls selling baggy trousers and T-shirts, tuk tuks touting for business and street food on every corner. This, however was nothing compared to Bangkok's China Town, the mecca for street food, that's if you can negotiate the narrow souk style alleyways filled with wares and avoid being run over! A pleasant temperature of about 33 degrees, sweating profusely which necessitated in regular Singha stops 🍻

Looking forward to to a few more in the rooftop sky bar shortly!

I have put a couple of pics on but nothing much of us as we are sweaty messes sporting a few mossie bites (Simon)!
