Our last few days in Bangkok

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

I'm fine = Sabàay dii
Excuse me = Khãw thôht
Please = Karuna

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.
