Third full day in Bangkok and Damneon Sadeuk floating market

Woke up early to go to the Bangkok South Bus Terminal to take a bus to Damneon Sadeuk floating market. Taxi to the bus terminal was about $10, it was 40km away. There didn’t appear to be a direct expressway link as the driver spent most of his time on city streets, but . . . → Read More: Third full day in Bangkok and Damneon Sadeuk floating market

Second full day in Bangkok

Here are the highlights from our second day in Bangkok:

We took the boat from the central pier along the river; this was very cheap (Less than $1 / person). Our boat driver was very new and he had trouble docking us at the central pier! At Pier 15, saw catfish in the water. . . . → Read More: Second full day in Bangkok

Last day in Phuket

Our last day in Phuket was more laid back. There were no tours; instead, we rented a car for the day. I had to get used to driving on the left side of the road, and on the right side of the car.

Here are some of the sights we saw in the day:

Second day in Phuket

Our second day in Phuket was much more enjoyable than the first, which was ruined by that timeshare scam. We woke up very early at 7am to catch our tour bus, which was late to pick us up. It took about 20 minutes to bring us to Chalong pier, where we got on our . . . → Read More: Second day in Phuket

First full day in Phuket

Our first day in Phuket wasn’t as enjoyable as we thought it could be. We were kidnapped in the morning by a British woman on a scooter, who lured us in with a “winner” prize and the promise of a t-shirt.

Flying to Phuket

We had a long-ass plane ride to get to Phuket, connecting through Bangkok. This is what we had to do in order to not pay hundreds of dollars for the ticket. On the flight, we encountered a half-Thai half-Danish race car driver. He had apparently just won a race, and was carrying around a . . . → Read More: Flying to Phuket

Chiang Mai, Day 2

Day two in Chiang Mai was pretty interesting. We took a tour for most of the day, and our first stop was to see and ride on top of the elephants. That was pretty fun, except for the fact that the elephant cleaned out his trunk on us a couple of times! Our tour . . . → Read More: Chiang Mai, Day 2

First Day in Chiang Mai

Our first day in Chiang Mai was pretty relaxing. The first thing we did was take a tuk-tuk into the center of the city and look for a foreign exchange. We eventually found one and then walked around, exploring the different temples, looking at the ceremonies taking place, and relaxing. There was not too . . . → Read More: First Day in Chiang Mai
