Bangkok

Pre and post Myanmar, Bangkok was a place to recharge. Traveller comforts abound, with 'easy Thai' street stalls around Khao San Road, cheap beer (and anything else you might need) at the multiple 7Elevens, and more tourists than locals (at least in the traveller's ghetto where we mostly stayed).

Bangkok proved to call all types to its streets, with people a lot like us, and people who couldn't be more different. There was no one type, which was endearing and at times, a little entertaining as we people watched over a beer from a street side bar. It was a great place to refuel (and as it turned out for us, wait out the worst of a killer cold), but after a week we were ready to move on. 

 

We hope these photos of the streets of Bangkok speak for themselves and show a city that is full of energy, offers some amazing food and more tourists (not travellers) than you can shake a stick at.

Had lunch in the CBD while waiting for our Myanmar visas to be processed. Ate with the locals, and mixed our own flavours in our pork and chicken soup. Best lunch ever!!
