Day 17 – Bangkok

Not much to report and no photos during the day as we were on the bus headed from Siem Reap to Bangkok most of the day. Quite a wait at the border but once into Thailand the difference in wealth was apparent. Upon arriving in Bamgkok I couldn’t believe the different in the city compared to the last time I was here in 1997. Back then it was dirty, smelly and congested. It’s now a much cleaner city, fewer motorbikes and much less air pollution.

After check in at the Nuovo City Hotel, just a few hundred metres from Khao San Road, we headed off for our final group dinner with Theavy, and then to Khao San Road for a look around and a few drinks. We ended up at a bar with live acoustic guitar music which was fantastic!

Deb and Brigitte had to leave us to catch their plane, but we continued till the wee hours – a top night!
