Goodbye From Bangkok

Our last few days in Bangkok

30 °C

Sawat Dee (Hello) from Bangkok, well this is our last night here in Bangkok before we move on to Chiang Mai. Yesterday we took in the greenery at the Lumphini Park. It is like the Central Park of Thailand. There are so many different activities that go on at the park like outdoor concerts, aerobics classes, tai chi, and jogging. We had a very nice and peaceful picnic for our last day in Bangkok.
It was nice to get away from the loud bustling city and just sit back and relax, watching the culture around us. We got through the first leg of our trip just fine and thanks to some much needed Thai phrases that got us through some good bargaining. Here are just a few words and phrases that we learned to use well…

    Yes = Chái
    No = Mâi chái
    Thank you = Khàp khun
    No, thank you = Mâi ao khàp khun
    Hello = Sawàt dee
    How are you? = Sabai dee rue?
    I'm fine = Sabàay dii
    Excuse me = Khãw thôht
    Please = Karuna
    I do not understand = Mâi Khâo jai
    I cannot speak Thai = Poot passat Thai mai dai
    Can speak a little Thai = Poot passat Thai nit noy
    How much? = Thâo rai or Kee Baht?
    I don't have much money = Mee nguen mai maak
    Can you discount a little = Lot rakka dai mai
    Too expensive = Paeng Pai.
    You must be joking = Poot len naw
    I want it cheaper = ow thuuk
    1 = Neung
    2 = Song
    3 = Saam
    4 = See
    5 = Ha
    6 = Hok
    7 = Jet
    8 = Paet
    9 = Gow
    10 = Sip

Well it’s off to Chiang Mai in the morning. We will be updating everyone on our voyage through Chiang Mai soon, goodnight from all of us.
