Well, feeling a little better today, and generally had a more successful Bangkok experience. Booked a train to Chang Mai and managed to wander round Chinatown and go to a few temples without getting much hassle. Maybe it’s the ethnic shirt I bought at the market!
Highlights include the 3m Budda statue made of actual real shiny golden gold, and the simply huge reclining Budda statue. Ended up taking a landscape photo vertically to try and get the whole thing in one picture. Even managed to successfully use non-tourist transport! Okay, so it was just one bus, but it means a lot to me!
Basically, I’m glad to have plans, and to be moving on. Bangkok has been a bit of a mixed experience, but I guess that’s supposed to be part of the ‘charm’ of travelling. ;)
