There's 2 things you can do with a map of Bangkok.

1)Wipe your arse with it.

2)Burn it.

Now burning it isn't the best option because it's already very hot here. Wiping your arse with it is no good either because the toilets here can't handle the paper, and NO ONE needs a blocked toilet in 38 degree heat.

I got lost 4 times on my first day in Bangkok, so it's just better all round to hire a local tuk-tuk driver to take you where ever you want to go. Of course always negotiate the price first and make sure he knows not to take you to one of his brothers tailor shops.

Boxing is a massive sport here, and I don't mean that girly stuff Mike Tyson does. Thai boxing can be vicious, with elbows, knees and high kicks all trying their best to loosen teeth. We bought tickets through our hotel to go see a fight. It was a bit expensive, and when we arrived we discovered why. We had VIP ringside seats, close enough to get covered in blood and spit. When I pointed this out to Cailin she wasn't too happy.

As the evenings entertainment began, we watched the fighters wee 12 year old brothers come down and enter the ring. Then I realsied that these were the fighters. 4'10" of pure muscle and rage. I wouldn't mess with them. And I fight tigers for a living.
