Khao San Night

Started off our trip on the right foot by checking out the huge weekend market --Chatuchak Weekend Market. This place is massive, with about 10,000 to 15,000 stalls spread over 70 acres!!!! After hours of wandering aimlessly, we threw in the towel and headed off for a much needed A/C break and a cold beverage.

On our short stay in Bangkok, we also took the boat down the river to Khao San Road, where we saw the most Western tourists on our trip so far!!!! It was pretty funny. The street was blocked off to most vehicular traffic and tourists were everywhere. We tentatively booked our diving trip and headed on down to the infamous Patpong area.

It was a short but good stay in Bangkok. This will be our hub for the next little while as many of the discount airlines fly in and out of here.
