Last stop

Finally. We are finally on the last travel post. We promise to return to being a boat blog after this...

We returned to Bangkok for the last few days of our trip. Since we had a taste of the good life in Koh Chang, we were in no mood to hostel it any more. So we stayed in the Asia Hotel, a real live hotel near the Skytrain so we could tour the city easily.

Bangkok is a city like many US cities. It's big, lots of shops, businesses, malls, towering buildings... so honestly we didn't take a lot of pictures. But we do have a few...

Lots of traffic... Still with lots of bikes... See the red number 79 on the left? That's the coolest thing. It counts down to the grren light, so you know just how impatient you have to be. And the big concrete elevated structures are the sky train "rails" that go all over the city.

This is the mall where we did some shopping... and saw The Chonicles of Narnia with Thai subtitles.

One of the things we did was take a water taxi up the river... just to see what there was to see.

Where's Waldo? Errr... I mean Tom... Where's Tom? (one hint: He's the white guy) It turns out lots of people commute by Water Taxi, so we weren't alone.

That's a pretty nice commute!

Lastly, we went to a few markets for some last minute souvenir shopping... I love markets.

This was my favorite souvenir. Unfortunately I had to return it before we left because it wouldn't fit in my backpack... oh well.

Trust me, I tried to get it in there...

Nope, she didn't have room either. It's OK though, we were just happy to be heading home. I mean honestly, after lugging those bags around for a month, wouldn't you be ready to go home?
