Nov 15, 2006 - Laa Kawn Thailand

Pattaya definitely lived up to its reputation. I've never seen so many 50 year old (and older) men walking around with twenty something Thai girls. One guy who I suspected was in his sixties had a girl on each arm - living the dream I reckon. As long as everyone's happy, who am I to complain. Well last night finished with a completely above board hour long massage and a few drinks at the local Irish bar, Kilkenny's. It seemed to be the only place not packed to the rafters with working girls and the rear beer garden backed onto the Gulf of...

Aug 31, 2006 - Kanchanburi Province (Thailand)

Having been away for a few days to Koh Tao and settled back into Bangkok we decided to go for a cisit to Kanchanburi province where the Famous Bridge over the River Kwai is amongst many other attractions. Through a frend of Jamies we contacted a taxi driver called Mr Tee, funny guy talked a lot thouh and for me thats saying something. It took about two hours to drive there which wasn't too bad as we just chilled in the back with a few beers and good air con, dodgy tunes though he had a MP3 player conected to his radio which he was very...

YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE

May 21, 2006 - Back to bangkok- and civilisation!

After 3 days of rain on the coast we joked what would happen if the bus was full and we couldn't get out and back to bangkok. Well it was. So we had to get a boat for 4 hours up the coast. Highly amusing as it was a river boat not really built for the sea! And after 3 days of rain it was pretty rough! Once we got to our destination- the border of cambodia- we had to take a Songthauw (i.e. pickup truck with seats) for an hour to Trat(in the rain)- love it! We arrived at the bus stationa nd thankfully there was a late night bus to bangkok...

Feb 4, 2006 - Thailand - Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi lies on the path of a popular smuggling route from Thailand to Myanmar (Burma) and is the hme of the infamous Bridge on the River Kwai. It is also the starting point for tours to a monetary that we saw on a National Geographic documentary months ago. If it had been anyone else doing this not a monetary full of monks you would immediately label it a money making scam. As it is, it's just very strange! Their monetary, wat Pa Luanga Bua Yannasampamo is now more affectionally known as Tiger Temple because it is also home to around...

Nov 14, 2004 - Bangkok - Welcome to chaos and flyovers

The difference between Bhutan and South Thailand compared to Bangkok cannot be understated. Bangkok is a true Asian metropolis - sprawling, chaotic, open all hours, shopping galore and can appeal to all types of people. Oh and lots of roads, but horrendous traffic on all of them! We spent longer in Bangkok than intended due to Neha's burn and her restricted leg movements. Kiran managed to buy a new camera after drowning the last one. He pleaded his innocence at not sabotaging the camera to satiate his need to gadget shop and attempted to...
