When I choose a destination there certain things I have to particularly make sure their covered. Good street food, good night life and many other travels. On this trip I chose Bangkok to be my stop over in between other cities and other neighboring countries. I have been to Bangkok before so time I chose to have my $25 apple martini on the Sky Bar. The view was definitely one to kill for:)
On one of my days in between my non touristic days, I chose to take a day off alone to Ayutthaya the historical city. While traveling alone as a backpacker everyone at home assumes I will be spending the whole vacation by myself, in reality the days you get to seat alone or just enjoy doing your own thing without having the same conversation with different people is very rare. Don’t get me wrong I am happy to have all this new people I meet but when its time to take a time out, I usually have a great time :). I therefore took a train out there and got a tuk tuk guy to take me around for half the day.
My evenings in Bangkok ranged from wild drunken nights to mellow walks on the river or just a street and back massage for less than $5. You know when the statement its a small world comes to play; I bumped into a friend who I had last seen 3 years ago in Malaysia. It was great reconnecting and having some good Bangkok time together shopping and having our traditional hookah evenings.
We all know Bangkok is well known for lady boys, street boy streets and go go bars. I may have passed on the ping pong show but that didn’t mean didn’t get my chance of having to see tiny Thai girls working the poles as we passed by the bars.
Bangkok was so different as I reconnected with friends from places I had visited before and made life long friends. having amazing street food and just chilling all day is just the best way to spend my vacations:)
