We moved on from our 5* hotel in the riverside to the area more known for its partying and tourism… Khao San Road!
It was also time for me to experience my first hostel! We stayed at Born Free hostel. Nice welcome and showed us to our dorm. We have a bunk bed and communal shower and toilet. Everything is clean and basic and the communal living lounge is really nice!
Full fast WiFi too which is good! We had a venture to Khao San Road… Even more people trying to sell things and get you in their bar! Surly if I wanted a hammock or a suit I would go buy one! My fave were braclets saying I love my boyfriend! Haha. Nkosi got blagged in to buying a magic trick too.
I then realised I left my iPad in the bed at the hotel we stayed at previously… So we got the water boat there although went up the wrong way of the river so had to go back on ourselves… However at 15 baht each (about 30p) to stay on it along as you want is not too bad… Wish our public transport was as affordable! Anyway got to hotel and got my iPad back… I know we are lucky!!
At night we had street food and some cocktails … To be fair they weren’t the best… At Kims Cocktail Bar! The best bit…they brought Kim out to meet me… Some really fat Thai man!! What a surprise. Not.
We met loads more people everyone is very chatty. Went to another nice bar and met two girls from Derry in Ireland; Nikita and Rachel and a man from Miami! We got drink together in a bar… Danced… Drank more…I had my first bucket.. They ate scorpion… Then went to a club called… The Club! Had a really fun night thanks ladies!!
Lesson for the day…
We move on from Bangkok tomorrow and I’m looking forward to leaving! Its very full on here, I’m not too keen on the constant sell and approach, and maybe not so cheap as you think either!
