Just a few lines to describe our journey from Bali to Vietnam. We left Bali on the mid day flight to Bangkok, no problems at all, everything on time and good flight. We now had nearly 24 hours in Bangkok so had booked into a hotel near the airport with pool. The three of us shared a very comfortable clean room and also the shuttle to and from the hotel was included in the price, 30;00.. Kirsty I think this is where you will stay, but don't eat across the road at the market, we loved it but you would be spoilt for choice!!!
That evening Amy wanted to go shopping in central Bangkok so we set off in a Taxi. The driver didn't know how to get to the Sky train station that we wanted, he kept stopping asking people, saying sorry sorry, he was genuine and we didn't mind.We got to the sky train eventually and then into the shopping district. Amy wanted to buy an Apple I Pad 2 as it was going to be much cheaper in Bangkok, only problem was everyone wanted one and they had sold out everywhere. Money still burning a hole in her pocket.
We eat in a shopping mall, huge choice of food but very cold air con.. Remember if shopping in the malls in Bangkok take a jacket...
We went back to the hotel by skytain and then a very unscrupulous Taxi Driver,, Amy being the geographer soon knows her way around and she knew the taxi driver was going the wrong way, therefor going to rip us off!! Oh no,,not with Amy in charge.She insisted on only paying what she thought to be the correct price,, bit of an argument with the Taxi drivers controller on the phone but no she was not going to pay anymore!!  Don't worry Kirsty,, you can use the shuttle,,organized by the hotel..

The next day before our flight we made use of the pool, had a relax read our books then checked out at 13;00 and got the shuttle to the airport for our next flight. Arrived back safe and sound at Amy,s unpacked, had a take away and early night.
