The Chao Phraya river makes a great way to get around, since many of the major tourist sites are easily accessible from the river.The boat ride was excellent they take us around for 1.30hrs

Finally the Baiyoke sky hotel which has 84 floors the view from top of the building was fantastic.They charge about 90 Thai bhat and it is inclusive of a welcome drink.

I know the pangs. I am not a 100% vegetarian but South Asian Food generally gives me the shivers seeing that most of the dishes are uncooked and / or raw. Thai food is usually OK as they tend to use lots of veggies and I really like the spices they use. I hope you enjoyed in Bangkok.
