Got a good sleep last night and went off to breakfast a bit late.
     We are heading out to the kings palace today, we barter with  taxi driver (our daily ritual now) and off we go.
 
 The palace is Amazing! you have to dress proper like no shorts allowed, the king is like a god here and very highly respected and his palace portraits that, every building (and there are lots) are covered in Gold.
 

  I spot a tour guide with a group and we slip in for the free ride and information, we get to hear about the monkeys and dragons and how us Ferang (foreigners) pick off and steal the gold to sell or keep as momento's (must be the french)
 So many people grab out and want to touch and fuss over the kids and take photo's they mean o harm but it can get a bit irritating at times.
    I decide to take photo's of funny people and try to sneak in their photo's so I can point and laugh a bit to cheer myself up (it works)
The Palace is a must see the buildings are incredible and the architecture is fantastic.

  It's back to the hotel for a swim (ok I admit it we didn't even know the hotel had a pool until last nights party - oh we are such seasoned travellers)
  A local walk in the evening and a midnight meal at a roadside cafe (the best meal yet) and our day is done.
  

 Oh we also decided today where we are heading off to next 'Prachuap Khirir Khan' - now all we need to do is work out how we are going to get there and where to stay - We leave tomorrow
