Leaving Bangkok

on Friday, 13 August 2010

Today we are leaving Bangkok for Chiang Mai. We have to be out of the room by 12 and end up just spending the day at the hostel restaurant on the internet and a little bit of shopping around Khao San Road. We have to leave for the train station at 9pm at which point it starts to tip it down, the last couple of days have been dreadful and I just hope it is nicer when we return down south to the islands again. We get on the train and it is absolutely roasting, we only have a fan carriage and maybe it would have been more sensible to get air con in hindsight. The beds are fairly comfortable and not the worst we have been on, so it will do for the 15 hour journey to Chiang Mai.
