I also went to Bangkok after the trip to Bali.
The flight from Denpasar to Suvarnabhumi Airport was at 1 a.m. I was exhausted by the time I got through Customs and everything else. I found another AirBnB and ended up on the 42 floor in this amazing high rise condo! I had an insane view.
The first stop there was a coffee tasting. I think all in all, I might’ve drank a pot of coffee. I got really sick. I was so over caffeinated that I was not well for another day.
I also went to the Floating River Market that was maybe an hour outside of Bangkok. That was… eh. I got on these boats with these suped up engines and went from stall to stall buying trinkets and stuff. A second part of the tour was going to see elephants. I was told it was a sanctuary, but nope. I was in tears when I saw this huge beautiful majestic animal chained and prodded with a bull hook. It was hard to participate in and we both were sad afterward.
A cool thing I visited was the Giant Leaning Buddha at Wat Pho. It was incredible! I had to dress respectfully by wearing a long skirt. There were so many Buddhas. The temple was also filled with really playful cats.
I went to see a Muy Thai fight which was really cool!I ended up in this packed stadium watching dudes beat the crap out of each other with live music.
I also get the opportunity to hang out with my roommate Lucas and some of his team and a translator one night. We went to a packed club. Super packed. It was a wild gin soaked night. Very fun!
I liked Bali a lot more than Bangkok , just because I was a little overwhelmed in the city. It was like going to Manhattan but in Thailand. Here is the funniest part of the trip though. Ready?
