Day 197 ;

Woke up late, woops, had meant to go back to the hospital early and get it all out the way, ah well, twelve o clock we were back , ready for some serious sightseeing...

First off we walked to the grand palace, spent over an hour in there, saw the emerald Buddha as well.
Then to Wat Pho, mainly for the reclining Buddha which was pretty gobsmacking at first sight, also took a good wander round the grounds there, all the different little buildings and structures was pretty cool, not really a touch on some of what we saw at the grand palace.

Then tuk tuk back so every one could get out of the hot clothes and get a quick shower, no rest! Walked to the chao prayha pier near us, took the boat along to China town, walked to the pier to a temple I now can't remember the name of but anyway, to see the golden Buddha which again was impressive, over five tonnes of solid gold, in a shrine right at the top floor of the temple, and for once the inside looked different to all the rest!!!

Taxi back from China town and then down to khao san road so Lucy and lauren could get tattoos, it was eight or half eight by the time everyone was finished. Lauren had to try and numb the pain with a few beers, top of the foot seems a painful place!!!
Mmmm after that was our last dinner together as the group, down by the river, wasn't so great and Claire was already starting to get a little upset about the thought of them leaving....
