Now that I've successfully beaten the worst jetlag ever (seriously, i don't know how travel buffs do it!), its about time I write about our world travels.
The travel plans we set up had us spending literally one night in Bangkok.
This was the view from our apartment. We found out that the building we stayed in was in the Hangover 2. #famous
We took a water taxi up the river to the city center. Since there are so many great temples to see, this was a great way to get a quick view of the ones we couldn't stop for.
|Wat Arun - The Temple of Dawn|
We went to Wat Pho, the largest and oldest monestary in Bangkok. It has beautiful temples and a gigantic reclining Bhudda!
I just loved the beautiful mosaics in this place. Absolutely gorgeous.
|I have this as my kitchen backsplash please?|
Tip: be sure to get a massage at the massage institute towards the back. it's a little pricey for Thailand's standards (about $18 USD/hr), but it was the best massage we had throughout our entire trip.

We planned our next stop to be the Grand Palace, which is right in front of Wat Pho. Unfortunately we were turned away because Torrey was dressed inappropriately! You see, he was wearing shorts (I was wearing a maxi skirt), and to enter the Grand Palace you must have your legs covered. They do provide covers, but the line was so long we didn't want to wait, so my slutty husband and I grabbed a tuk-tuk to drown our sorrows in some noodles.
Not even capris are allowed!
This tuk-tuk driver (like most I assume) was insane. Weaving in and out of lanes, inches away from cars, speeding through lights- I was holding on for dear life!
The rest of the day was spent shopping at Chatuchak Market, one of the world's largest weekend markets,
where freaking monitor lizards roam free!
|and the world's your oyster..|
I'll never forget our time in Bangkok.
Post of Ao Nang coming soon <3
