The next morning we woke up late - nooo we had missed the free buffet breakfast by 45 minutes! gutted! We went downstairs to see if any of the others could smuggle us some food out but they had already taken it all away....
Went and sunbathed for a bit then went and got our bags sorted to leave. We were now officially on our own...no more Nicole to do everything for us! Exciting!!!
We had a hostel booked to we got a bus to downtown Bangkok. We had really wrong directions to get there so a French bloke had to help us. The bus was boiling and there were cockroaches arghh! Its really rude in Thailand to put your feet up on stuff as the feet are the lowest part of the body so I had to leave them on the floor for the roaches to run all over me...rank!
After 30 minutes of melting and bugs we got off - found out we got off too early so we got the Sky Train - its a tube but in the overground. Pretty nifty. Got off found our hostel, bit dark and hot but okay - we went from a plush hotel with a swimming pool to a hot, sweaty dorm room in one day!
Didnt have time to hang around we were off to the airport to meet Chi!! To get to the airport we had to get a Sky train then a bus to the airport then a shuttle bus...Missions!
Met Chi at the arrivals hall was quite funny waiting for him coz we didnt know if we were in the right place.. He came through and we had to do the same mission with the busses to get back to the hostel.
Chi dropped his bag off and we went to find some food and have a wander around downtown Bangkok, we found a nice cafe and had some nice food then the fun started haha every single street and alley we walked down was aimed at sex tourists! There were ppl offering us ping pong shows left right and centre, prostitutes lined up outside all the clubs and we found one street which looked really pretty with loads of fairy lights and found out it was the gay street with loads of boys in tiny pants standing around everywhere! haha it was too much we wanted to get out so we left to find the night market. Walked around a massive park for about an hour getting all aggy with eachother because we couldnt find the market and it was hot and humid and dark... then we found it back where we started - always the way!
It was worth the walk though because it was the biggest market i'v ever seen with a concert tent! we walked around for a while then got a beer Chang (Thai beer) and went and sat in the concert tent to watch Thai boys/girls murder George Michael songs. After that it was back to the hostel (great! lol)
