Traveling day, left Krabi in the morning. Arrived to Bkk Souvarnabhumi at noon. Same hasle with touts again about further transport into Bangkok. Now I have received my room at the Rajah Mansion. This room will be my home until the end of April.
After a rainy morning which excluded any longer ercursions. In the afternoon, after that the weather became better, I spended two hours at the hotel swimming pool. Freezing cold water. Maybe it is good, because the weather service forsees that the hot season coming early this year. They expect temperatures around 40 degrees before the end of this month.
A rainy day. A light rain fell over Bangkok almost the whole day. Only indoor activities, like visits at a couple shopping centers.
Visit the Night Bazaar. Not only a market, it is also an eating and drinking area. Rather pleasant.
Another day along the Chao Phrya river area.
Visited the Grand Palace. It gave me a feeling that I was inside in a fairy tale story. Much gold and many imaginative figures, statues and buildings. Shortly after the palace visit, the rain came.
Stayed mostly in the Sukhumvit area. Daytime I spended some time around the swimming pool to catch some tan. Weekends means also a lot of football watching. I saw some games in different sport bars.
Due to some sunburn, I have to be a little bit careful. Stayed away from the sunshine so much as posible, only visit some travel agents in the near neighbourhood, for info about further trips. At the evenings I tried to figure out, which beer are the best Chang, Singha or Tiger beer.
Tour on Bangkok's canals. To travel on the water-ways gives a completely different picture of Bangkok. The tour included visits to an orchid farm, fish farm and a small zoo, with a snake show. Unfortunately it don't became so many photos, because my camera run out of memory space.
