Asia » Thailand » Central Thailand » Chanthaburi December 23rd 2009

Early morning start. Another tour with tong. (name of the business) We had a guide named Lily. She was upbeat and very friendly. From the moment we got in the van she started telling us heaps of things about Thailand and Bangkok. We had plans to give some food in the morning to the monks. I spent around $500 baht ($25 australian dollars) and fed 19 monks. Absolutley amazing experience. I do not have a photo of me doing it but I did manage to get one of Mark. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to give something back. Hard to explain but those that want to know more, feel free to ask me. We then got back into the van and headed to the railway markets. My favorite part of the day. They have ... read more

The third day of our trip. Still in Bangkok, We were lookig forward to this day as we had no tour booked and we were just going to do some wandering around and head back to China town for a second look.

I waited an hour with Zoe until Mark came back and told us it cost him $40 australian to have one wisdom ... read more

Hello everyone! I trust everyone is all ready for Christmas? There is christmas lights throughout the hotel hear so it really feels like christmas here. Flight seemed like a day and a half. My advice. DO NOT think, that staying up all night before a flight is a good idea. Lol. I did not sleep at all and thought I would spend the entire flight sleeping. Could not of been more wrong!! We arrived at night time in Bangkok and about 5 minutes before we arrived. It hit me. I am almost home. Strange isnt it? I couldnt help but feel that pull at my heart, like I do about half way through my flight to Canada. A fimilar but great feeling. Home? Thailand you say? Well come on now, I may have Australian and Canadian ... read more
