We visited the grand palace in 2006, the first time we ever visited Bangkok but decided it was well worthy of a second trip almost 8 years later.

It was just as we’d remembered it plus we seemed to notice more than last time probably because the first time you’re simply overwhelmed.

Later that evening we met up with some friends from Finland who we’d first met 2 years ago on Ko Jam. They’d had big trouble getting to the Kho San area from the airport, their taxi driver stopped at the first road block and told them they’d have to get out and walk, it took them almost an hour as they’d no idea where they were. I guess the aim to ‘Shut Down Bangkok’ is working.

We had a lovely meal together and did some serious catching up before saying our goodbyes and going our separate ways. Who knows? We may bump into each other again as they’re in Thailand for two months.

The next day we had a flight to Ranong, from there we plan to take a bus to Kuraburi and go to Ko Surin. A beautiful unspoilt island where there are no roads or buildings at all just tents along the beach.

Kyla needs to go to Grand Palace!
I showed this blog to Kyla and she was exclaiming loudly at all the statues at the Grand Palace. Might have to take her there some day!
