After a comfortable 11 hour flight, a respectable amount of sleep and some sort of chicken, we arrive safetly in Bangkok. Collect are oversized backpacks and hit the road. 150 Thai batt to Silom, bus AE3.
As I sit on the bus, Chris asleep, trying to take in new surroundings, I quickly realise this isnt anything like we are used to. Health and Safety dosent exist, scooters weaving in and out of traffic, organised chaos. Onto the highway and above the sea of corrogated iron roofs you can see the temple spires splitting the riples of the houses.
Last stop on the route and as we jump of are moving bus, Chang a skinny glasses thai/chinese man decides to show us are hotel. He waits for us and tells us were to watch the football. Chang leads us through busy tourist streets and down dark back allys. Eventually we arrive at a bar, get a drink, quickly scaning the room its obviously out of some sort of mafia red shirt establishment.
Half time of the Chile versus Honduras game, we use it to escape, however Chang tells us about a sweet deal he will get us on a bus trip to Koi Chang. arriving at the tourist shop, first impressions, not great. The guy has most of his buttons out on his shirt yet still made the bold fashion statement to wear a tie. The offer wasnt great he made either so we left and told Chang we would call him tomrrow. Unfortunatly Chang will recieve no phone call, but im sure he will find new western people to show around.
We made are way back to the hotel, pure luck we found it. Good first day, time for some shut eye.
