Me again......

Not long now before one visits the 'Land of Smiles'.....I have started putting an itinery together which looks like......

From Thursday 26th November to Monday 30th November will be in Bangkok, and hopefully will be visiting some of the following, what I don't get to do, I will visit when I return to Bangkok on 7th December for 6 nights...

  • Erawan pay my respects
  • this bar many times on video's so thought I would go take a look
  • Ayutthaya by river...a little cruise which takes about 8hrs there and back, to see the ancient previous capital of Siam
  • Damnoen Saduak floating market...never visited before
  • Khlong's of Thonburi tour...a tour around the small rivers of Bangkok
  • Soi Rambuttri...more commonly known as 'Khoosan Road'
  • Klong Toey market...fresh food market close to the Klong Toey slum
  • Eat bugs

On 30th November I will then travel probably by taxi or train to Hua Hin for 7 nights, which is about 3 hrs travel time from Bangkok, it's a beach resort famed as the holiday destination for the King of Thailand. Just a few things on my list to do...

  • Visit Platoo a great TripAdvisor write-up
  • May do another Thai cookery course
  • Will sunbathe on 5th November as most places will be closed all day, as it's the King's birthday
  • Visit Hua Hin railway station, really old and beautiful (bit like oneself)
  • Hua Hin night bazaar
  • Eat bugs

Then back to Bangkok for 6 nights before go home, a few more things I am hoping to do...

  • Visit Kanchanaburi, which is famed as the location of 'bridge over the river kwai'
  • Hangover 2 tour
  • Take photo of train going through Mahachai Samut Sakhon Market (video on YouTube)
  • Meet my friend Glen and his brother Gary, as promised to buy them both a few beers and a lovely Thai meal
  • Eat bugs 

Thank you for reading........
