Bangkok, Thailand II

This is our last set of photos from Bangkok. We spent quite a bit of time walking around the Khoa San road area but when we wanted a break we caught an express river boat (yet another way of getting around the city) to the shopping district of Bangkok. This was a completely different area than the rest of Bangkok. There are plenty of fancy multi-level malls, a sky-train, nice restaurants, and modern architectural buildings... and ridiculous traffic.

We did some browsing at some of the fancy malls, got some frozen yogurt and checked out some of their elaborate Christmas decorations. From there we headed to Chatuchak Park, which is a beautiful park with golf-course like grass. We were there right when the sun was setting and the light was beautiful. It was a nice way to spend the evening. 

Bangkok is a beautiful city. There is so much to see and do. The people are incredibly nice, the food is amazing... can't wait to go back.


Next up: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Some of the houses along the river, captured from an express boat.
This is what traffic looks like very day in certain areas.
Never been to a mall with more stories than the ones in Bangkok.
