Where I stayed
My House Guest House
before the plane set off I arrived in the city of angels Krung Thep or
Bangkok. It was like going home to a warm welcoming with smiling
people, great food and parties that last all night. I shared a taxi
from the airport and found the hostel that I'd stayed at 4 years
previously with Sabine. I payed 160 THB a night (3 EUR) and for the
first few days just chilled out around the Kao San Road area. I then
decided to explore BKK and went to Wat Pho where the huge lying Buddha
spends his time and Wat Arun with its impossibly steep steps
dutch guy who I'd met once in Yangshuo, China and went around with him
and his girlfriend for the day.
That night I decided to get a tattoo and got a cool Mauri design on my foot...which by the way is quite a painful location.
The next day I planned my Thailand trip a little bit more extensively
than I previously had and decided to head for the beach to climb near
Krabi on a beach called Ton Sai. I booked a train / bus ticket for 660
THB (13 EUR) and caught the overnight sleeper train to Surat Thani
where I needed to Change for Krabi.
