Day fourteen our last day in Bangkok

It was a late night for some of us, as the Hash ended too early to go to bed and we were in Bangkok no less. Headaches were the order for breakfast, followed by a ride to the floating market, yet another fast boat ride and a stop at another Wat and a large orchard plantation. At lunch we visited a large market and ate at a Chinese noodle shop, and then we visited the Royal Residence, before preparing to leave for home.
We had a farewell dinner at a restaurant on the way to the airport, and as it was Loy Krathong, the holiday of floating candles, we placed our own upon the pool before leaving for the airport. It would be a long 17+ hour flight to New York, but we would all have many good memories to think about until we arrived. I would have gladly skipped our time in Bangkok for another day in Cambodia, Laos, Chiang Mai or Luang Prabang. It was a great journey that we'll remember for a long time. Thanks Tinker and Short Shorts, from all of us. I most enjoyed the culture, food and entertainment, and it wouldn't have been the same without all of our new friends and traveling companions....seriously!

Bangkok Hotels, Thailand said...

Many thanks with your good story. If i have a chance to visit in Bangkok again , i will go to Grand Palace and looking for the hotel around Kaosarn Road. I think that Kaosarn Road is good for young travellers. Around the street, there are a number of old buildings and temples, some of which have been transformed into restaurants and even tattoo parlours, although you will still find quiet family homes if you look deep enough. Aside from some interesting architecture, Banglampoo shows the mix of peoples and heritages that is the character of Bangkok. There are Muslims, Buddhists, Mons, and of course a great number of foreigners in this small area. All of this makes the area an interesting place for a glimpse of Thai life. Thais also appreciate the area for the many types of traditional kanom or Thai snacks and desserts available and the cheap clothing available in the Banglampoo Market.
