Tonight at the stroke of midnight I leave Bangkok and head to Sri Lanka.
I’m glad I spent my time in bustling Bangkok instead of heading as usual to the main tourist destinations… Phuket, Samui, Phi Phi, Chiang Mai etc.
Although Khaosan Road was not entirely unlike home in St Kilda, awash with backpackers and tour operators (and the damn hawker pests, they reminded me of the Great Wall of China) I spent most of my time on foot, roving the streets and alleys of the old district and along the river.
I’ve met some fabulous locals whom I would like to revisit, as well as ex-pats and tourists.
You just can’t beat the Buddhist culture… the sincerity and honesty is so refreshing.
Ok. Now for the next chapter….
