let me preface this post with saying thailand is one amazing place. as i sit here jet lagged from our flight back to the states i am already finding it hard to narrow down the highlights of this trip as there are so many. why not start with bangkok?
after a 45 minute taxi ride into central bangkok we arrived around midnight and hit the town due to the adrenaline rush of finally arriving. side note: the taxi ride cost 360 baht…approximately$12…45 minutes….awesomely cheap!
bangkok is truly a city that never sleeps. i can say this confidently as we were up at all hours due to adjusting to the 14 hour time difference and it is amazing how many people are everywhere, all the time, anytime.
a few items we found entertaining the first few days:
- straws, 7-elevens, & hot pink taxi cabs
- street vendors
