First Adventures in Bangkok, Thailand

We made it to Thailand

28 °C

Hey to all our family and friends reading, its Margaret here. We have just spent our first 5 days in Bangkok the capital city of Thailand. What can I say about Bangkok, it is hot, loud, and the pollution is out of this world. Our first weekend here we decided to check out the Chatuchak weekend market. It was remarkable to walk around and see the different items people were selling such as puppies, birds, fish, jewelry, antiques, rice, curries, noodles, insects (no we did not eat any, gross!) and the list goes on.
There are 9,000 different stations to choose from, which is crazy, it is impossible to see it all in one day so we did spend Saturday and Sunday walking around, still not getting to see all it has to offer. Keri got a little nervous with all the shouting and weird noises the sales people were making, to try and get our attention. It was very neat to see and I suggest if you are ever in Bangkok to come and set your eyes on it.

We are staying at a wonderful hotel, the Baiyoke Tower II, it is totally cool. It is the largest tower in Thailand and the view from the top is so incredible. It is about $50.00 CAD per night so not that expensive. Well we are off on our next adventure here in Bangkok and Bev is kicking me off the computer…so goodbye for now.
