Ohh our last night there we went on a dinner cruise down the Chao Phraya river. My first dinner cruise! That was also fun. We were being incredibly vain and dressed up and spent about an hour each on oour hair and make-up! *hides* The food was delicious. The Grand Palace and all the temples along it (though we'd seen them before when we went to the Floating Market) looked amazing lit up in the night. The music was pretty dire though. Lots of ABBA and Celione Dion! But that just made us laugh mainly and the band was good (when the singer took breaks) - especially the Sax player.
Other interesting things we did:
Anyway back here til Thursday then off to Penang for the weekend. YAY!
P.S. *cries* Everyone is talking about new Dr. Who! Not fair! I want to watch! </ end whine>
ETA: Oh i forgot to mention - Thai Taxi Drivers! Wow I've never come across a more useless group of people in my life. They don't know where anything is. Seriously. When we were trying to get to the Grand Palace - which has to rank pretty high on the popular tourist attraction list, three taxis turned us down because they didnt know where it was. The really funny thing was it was only about 10 mins away from the hotel! And no of them ever knew where our hotel was, despite the fact that we had it highlighted on a map, with Thai directions! At worst it took us asking 8 drivers and the last one just kinda took pity on us and took us to the right area, then we got a tuk tuk! LOL! You have to wander how these people make a living :D
