After a fun filled week, it was time to say farewell to our friends Crystal and Matt 🙁

Our tourist visa was due to run out, so it was time for us to make our way to the Tha boarder. Unfortunately because of the time of year all flights were booked out, so we decided to catch a bus from Phuket to Bangkok.

The journey took 14 hours and was very squishy. We had booked VIP seating, but were scammed by the man who drove the taxi, so had to ride in coach.

We arrived in Bangkok at 6am and caught a Tuk Tuk to Town in Town Place Hotel. We had a friend living nearby, so thought it would be great to catch up with her.

The room cost us 800 baht per nice, this gave us a really nice room with bathroom and air conditioning.

At 3pm we caught up with our friend Lek and her daughter Satamp. They showed us around parts of Siam and pointed out things that we should do for the few days that we were here.

After coming from Koh Tao and even Phuket, our minds were blown with Bangkok, all the technology and lights. It was so much different to the other parts of Thailand that we have visited.

Over the few days we did a river cruise, which showed us Bangkok by water, hired a Tuk Tuk driver who showed as around The Big Buddha, Royal Palace and suit shop 😉 , bought backpacks for our backpacking trip through Cambodia and Vietnam and went to one of the coolest bars ever with Lek and Satamp. Sky Bar is the highest open air bar in Bangkok, bragging panoramic view of Bangkok and incredible cocktails.
