Bangkok

Today is the 7th and second last day in Bangkok, Thailand. I’ll cross over to a neighboring country tomorrow. [The name the place literally means “Siam Defeated” according to Wikitravels.]

I am not posting here photos of high-rise buildings and glitchy malls of Bangkok in this entry. Will do that, may be, in next posts about the city. Lady collectors in the buses- beautifully dressed and some with their faces covered by masks- were new to me. (I liked traveling in airconditioned buses in Bangkok.) By today, I have traveled in buses, both trains (sky and underground) and over the Chao Phraya River in boat. Enjoyed that boat ride. But no tuk tuk yet. May be their turn will come when I return to the city again in a week. (More later.)

It’s 11:30 here and need go get some sleep. Looking forward to my first real Train ride in Thailand tomorrow.

  1. What a co-incidence, I was in Bangkok and Pattaya with my family this July and had a great time. Are you there on a journalistic mission? What all places are you covering? You may want to check out my blog where I have put some notes on Bkk/ Pattaya and compare notes (www.bhavenjani.wordpress.com), cheers and all the best on your trip. Bhaven (New Delhi)
