Bangkok Itinerary

Only me
Just a little update with my present itinerary for the first 6 days in Thailand, which will be in Bangkok.
As soon as I arrive things will probably change itinerary wise, but the following list is my initial one...

  • Lumphini Park...a relaxing park in the centre of Bangkok
  • Chatuchak Market...the mother of all markets, approx 7000 stalls, open on a Saturday & Sunday
  • Khlong Toey Fresh Market...up early one day as opens at 4am, hopefully chance for some good pictures...of all things strange!!!
  • Yaowarat aka Chinatown...never been before so need to take a look, more culinary delights
  • Live Shrimp...something also not ever done...eaten live shrimp, hopefully another chance to do something new! I would really be good on 'I am a celebrity..get me out of here, as I hopefully can eat anything!!! (As soon as I wrote that quote I realised that one day I may regret it)
  • Massage's...pedicure 1 hr for £3, oil massage 2 hrs for £5...bliss!!!!
  • Khao San Road... The backpacking place to be....
  • Boat ride on the Khlong's ... A private boat ride along the smaller rivers in Bangkok viewing the non touristic area's, showing how the Thai's live...
Yep..Bangkok is all to do with temples, shopping, food, fun, and more food... Probably one of the most diverse cities in the world...and certainly one of the most amazing...you have to visit to believe!!

Bang Kwang Prison, Bangkok

I won't be visiting Bang Kwang this year, however I did visit it last year....that's another story! This prison is also known as 'The Bangkok Hilton'...when I visited as a 'visitor' I certainly was happy to be on the outside again... As one of the books written by an ex inmate quoted...it was a place similar to 'hell on earth'...
