Thailand – Day 6

After a lazy morning relaxing and doing some urgent laundry I headed towards Chinatown with its bustling maze of narrow streets and stalls. First stop was a temple where I witnessed various religious rituals. A visit to a restaurant was followed by a journey on the ferry boat downstream to the Shangri-la hotel and a closer inspection of my favourite building in Bangkok – an unfinished colossal high rise (which I can remember from my previous visit). A quick visit to another Chinese temple was followed by another ferryboat trip back up the river to a beautiful restaurant overlooking the river for a proper feed and some drinks. A very cheap taxi ride brought me all the way back to the hotel after a wonderful day in the city. Okay, so it looks like I’m not going to make it to Cambodia – not really bothered as I am having a wonderful time in the big smoke!
