Thailand - Day 21 - Bangkok

Day 21

Our last day in Thailand. We didn't get much of an opportunity to explore Bangkok so we decided we'd take the few hours this morning to have a look around and do some shopping. We found some cool graffiti.

An excellent example of Thai wiring. This is actually fairly tidy.

A minute after we took this last photo the security guard came over to talk to us. All of the guides and everything say not to let people come up to you and try to get you to go places and buy things. We didn't really follow that rule very well. He was telling us about what we thought was a market and he drew us a little map of how to get there, but then his wife, who doesn't speak English, came up to us and next thing we know we are follow this Thai lady through the streets of Bangkok. We were walking and weren't asked for any money so we followed but were a bit cautious. Before we knew it we were at this massive jewelry store. She left us out the front and it was only just down the street from our hotel. We went in and the took us on a little tour and we picked up a few souvenirs then headed back to our hotel. We may have mentioned this already, but our hotel is connected to the MBK centre. A massive shopping centre. We spent the next few hours bargaining. Then it was time to pack up and leave. We made our way to the airport for our long flight home.

We got in around 7.00 this morning and didn't sleep on the plane so today and yesterday are kinda the same day. We are both very tired, so I'm sorry if this post is a little off.

Stay tuned, we have one more post planned.

Night all,
