There are lots of interesting statues

There are lots of these beautifully painted tiles

There are long paintings showing a continuous story around the walls

Has he fallen asleep on the job?

It's like a fairy land.

I can't believe this is my last entry, it's all over so quickly.

You can probably guess from my last entry that the trip to Bangkok was hard work, 24hrs of climbing hills with backpacks, buses, ferrys and taxis with a continuous hangover. I was very sad to say goodbye to all those beautiful beaches and head to a busy polluted city. Actually compared to India Bangkok is neither crowded nor polluted.

We only had two days in Bangkok but as they were my last two days we cramed in as much as possible. We visited the very sparkly Grand Palace and Ocean World, which is a great acquarium under an incredibly posh shopping centre in the midle of Bankok. We had a brilliant time there and it's so much better than the fish shop posing as an acquariam that we went to in India.

We also went for our last night out clubbing (where I drank too much and had to be fed an emergency burger by Lucy) and found a brilliant night market to go shopping in. We literally shopped till we dropped which was then perfect timing for a full body Thai massage. After an hour of being pulled and pummelled I floated off to chow down on a yummy green thai curry. If any of you go to Thailand you must eat from some of the street vendors it's fantastically tasty fresh and cheap food, all the locals eat at these.

Then sadly it was time to get my 3am flight home!

Hope to see you all soon,
