Just very quickly: We’re about to board a plane to Penang, Malaysia after only 30 hours in Bangkok. Despite the short time spent here, we got a very good idea of the city: Big giant buddhas, traffic congestion, supreme mass of humanity, huge wats, upscale really is upscale, gaudy nightlife + old fat men, and breathtaking rooftop bars to rival those even in NYC.

We saw markets:

 

Reverence for monks:

 

Wat Arun:

 

Wat Pho:

 

The Royal Grand Palace:

 

And the real highlight: Bangkok’s rooftop bars

 

Rooftop bars!

Prostitution, vegas-style boulevards, "ping pong shows", and best of all: RANDOM ELEPHANTS!!!

 

I think Annah enjoyed Bangkok a little more than I did, so she should have more to say.

 

- At time of posting in Bangkok, Thailand, it was 32 °C - Humidity: 59% | Wind Speed: 6km/hr | Cloud Cover: few clouds
