Jim Thompsons house and the BACC

This morning I couldn’t find any fruit stall ladies, so I breakfasted at 7eleven. The banana bread was actually really nice and I never think you can go wrong with chocolate milk. After this I headed over to the BACC, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. I saw an exhibition by Chalood Nimsamuer. It was a really interesting collection and beautifully curated. Technically you weren’t allowed to take photos but I found this one on my camera after I had left.

Back to Bangkok

So Im back in Bangkok and the weather is awful. I’m staying in my usual haunt just of Koh San Road. Its not that great, but is fairly cheap and remarkably clean unlike a lot of places in this area. I’m sure I could find somewhere a bit nice but I know my way around here and I quite like the noodle soup.

Nakhon Si – living it up as a local

Sometimes whist traveling you accidentally come across the most amazing places that most people would have no reason to visit. Welcome to Nakhon Si Thammerat. Apart from being one of the most ancient cities in Thailand there isn’t anything special about it here. Its quite a large town where people live and run their daily lives.

Oh my goodness. Im in love with this Island. Its one of the prettiest places I seen. Its big on diving here but I’v decided not to get my PADI license as I don’t really know anyone else who has one and  its really something you can do on your own. Also Im a little bit terrified of the idea of it.

The moon is full

So I have been on Koh Phangan for just over a week. Its a very pretty place. At first it seemed it blissfully quiet. I stayed in a Beach hut right by the sea near Tong Sala. It was beautiful, there’s nothing like the sound of the sea gently crashing on the sand to get you off to sleep.

I hate water fights!

So its the third day of Songkran now. Iv had enough of it. It was fun on the first day but now its just annoying. Its not the tradition that is upsetting me, its the fact that any Western dickhead with a super soaker will aim directly for your eyes and find it hilarious. Thai people are a lot nicer about it, and they have cuter water pistols!

Sawadee Ka

So I have arrived in Bangkok and its brilliant! The taxi ride from the airport to my hostel seemed like a dream. It felt so calm after the heticness of Mumbai. There was no beeping of cars and hardly any motorbikes. As i looked out of the window all I could think was “this city is going to be fun”.
