Bangkok day 2

Him indoors had previously dismissed jet lag as "poppycock" and "new age nonsense" so I think it was a bit of a shock for him to be wide awake and craving a Sunday Roast at 03.45am.

Decided to have a nice chilled day today went for a swim in the roof top pool and then sat in the Jacuzzi tanning (I am ginger so for "tanning" see "burning") while sleepy head tried to come round.

The hotel has a complimentary tuk tuk which drops you off at the metro stations.

We headed over to the big shopping mall MBK taking the sky train which is very cool riding high above the traffic.

The mall was like a gigantic Arndale centre market full of everything you can possibly imagine, and then some.

We ate in the 5th floor food court which turned out to be a real rip off. We had virtually the same meal as the night before but the price was triple.

After lunch we both had the most amazing foot massage in a beauty salon at the mall. Only 300bhat (7€) for a full hour. Was wonderfull, we floated out of there. Those are Jason's hairy legs by the way!

We learned a valuable lesson today, if you go anywhere sanitised and Western you will pay hugely inflated prices. We need to get stuck into the street food carts, not in Bangkok though its too dirty.

We are off to Pattaya tomorrow by bus to stay in Bang Sare with Dave and his thai family before hitting the islands.

More than happy to be leaving Bangkok its like a different planet.
