Bangkok in 3 days


Great Post!

Taking to the Open Road

Mad, loud and congested, Bangkok takes some getting used to. Like all great cities, though, there are many layers to Bangkok, and like a sultry seductress, the city does not give up her secrets easily. We spent a short three days there over Christmas, squeezing in as much as we could, including a daytrip out to the train market, floating market, an elephant camp and the Bridge over the River Kwai.

Day 1

Bangkok’s manic traffic ensnares us with her claws and we sit in a couple of hours, inching along like a snail from the airport towards our hotel. Motorbikes zoom in between cars, riding on the edge of danger. School children walk home in herds. On every other corner there is a shrine, brightly coloured, draped in flowers, set with offerings. Finally we reach Siam Kempinski, our base in Bangkok, a welcome oasis of luxury and peace.
