One Night In Bangkok

We're now on Day 4 of our trip (with Day 1 being that evening in Patong Beach, Phuket). Currently, we're in Bangkok. A cancelled flight and a slight delay later, we scrambled to check out Wat Pho and Wat Arun. The Grand Palace will have to wait for tomorrow (with an itinerary change so we've decided to axe the Floating Market).

Days 2 and 3 involved going to Phang-nga Bay and Phi Phi Island, respectively. Quite nice.

But after our one night in Bangkok (while trying to stay on top of hustlers looking at tourists like walking cash registers), tomorrow is the official start to the waterfalling portion of the trip...

We'll try to keep you posted on the latest of this adventure.

Finally, before I sign off, I'm sure it seemed scary about the whole PAD and the airport situation last month. Now we're here and discussing with some of the locals what went on, it seems that there wasn't any danger as the protestors were totally not targeting the tourists. In fact, they tried to accommodate and apologize to them. We're still keeping an eye out for latest developments, but with a better understanding of the situation and the local sentiment, we're less worried than we were a week ago...
