Visiting Bangkok, Thailand felt a bit surreal. It’s a city that has been a “bucket list” destination for both Andrew and I for many years. I reckon the jetlag played a bit of a factor in the pinch-me-I’m-dreaming awe.
We found the city to be easy to navigate. Transit is straightforward: there are motorbikes, tuk-tuks and taxis along every street, and city buses along main routes. You can even take an Uber. The SkyTrain system is quick, efficient and inexpensive (and was our preferred means of travel).
Thai people are fantastically friendly. We did not find the language barrier to be an issue, although we will be sure to brush up on some more Thai phrases before visiting the country again.
The main highlight of our stay was the food. There were delicious, flavourful foods and fresh fruits everywhere- in restaurants, cafes, food stalls and carts.
We’ve packed our bags, and are hitting the skies again. Next destination: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.This entry was posted in Thailand
