A Travellerspoint blog


sunny 36 °C

Well after 13 hours of travelling by plane and succesfully negotiating the streets of bangkok i was able to check in to my hostel in bangkok. The hostel itself was actually really nice for $4 a night and was perfect for the time i was there, anyway shortly after arriving and having a nap to try and get rid of some of the jet lag i was out on my first night in bangkok!

I managed to have a chang beer and pad thai noodles for all of $2!! in a restaurant which was crazy and bloody nice. after that i took a walk down the night market onto the khoa san rd which i can only describe as something like the malia club strip, packed to the brim with street food vendors, bar and night clubs. i quickly discovered that the irish bar was the place to be and got stuck in, i was quite nervous at first but i met two guys from eastbourne of all places and got chatting, had a few beers with them until we called it a night at 2 o'clock.

On my 2nd day in bangkok waking up with a sore head, i braved the heat and tried to do a bit of sightseeing/walking but got bored quite quickly as there aint much to do in bangkok to be honest, except get drunk!! so in the evening with some of the people from my hostel we went to the muay thai (thai boxing) championship fight night, which was brilliant!! The atmosphere was brill and the thai people were going nuts for the underdog every time! After a few drinks and some brutal fighting we headed back to the khoa san Rd and to the irish bar were lots of chang beers towers and cocktails were consumed resulting in a night out clubbing! which was awsome and very messy!

on my 3rd and final day in bangkok waking up with a very bad hangover and a recollection of pretty much nothing! I chilled out around the hostel with everyone and prepared myself for my trip down to the islands of Koh Phang Nan on an overnight sleeper train. The sleeper train was an experience to say the least but was ok as i slept pretty much the whole way.

So now im in Koh Phang Nan writing this blog with a stinking hangover in 36c, sweating my tits off! but last night was the full moon party which was epic! but ill tell you all about that next time, were ill be writing from the island of koh tao.
