Phaya Thai, Downtown Bangkok. Our first experience of South East Asia – it turns out we chose a relatively dangerous time to arrive in Thailand with mass of protests going on. Thai people seemed to be fascinated with us and continuously took photos of us on their iPads! It was a very surreal experience sitting on a monorail with all locals heading to work whilst we had a our 100L back packs on.
First lesson: learning to say thank you: “Khob Khun”. (Kop un Ka pronounced)
