Ella’s Travel Diary

Friday, 20 Apr 2007

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

MapI woke up at 6:15am today and packed all my stuff up. I am not staying here every night when I can find a hostel for 200THB per night. Who needs A/C and all the perks??? If you have seen my place in London, you will know that I can slum it.

My tour bus picked me up at 7am and we headed out to the floating markets. On the way we stopped off at a coconut sugar making joint... the sugar was so strong and had the consistency of cloudy honey thats been in the fridge!

The floating market was very touristy and seemed to have lost a lot of its old charm. But the fresh fruit was delicious and I ate rambutans, mangos, pineapple and some red fruit that was white on the inside with black seeds... mmm.

Then we drove to the bridge that crosses the River Kwai and visited the WWII war museum. It was really interesting and made me think of Pa.

Another hour long journey and we arrived at the Tiger Temple... Yes, I grew some balls and patted Tigers... nearly crapped myself and the photos are hilarious but I did it.
