Bangkok…the best bits

A train official in a smart uniform came and made up our beds, pulling out bunks, tucking in sheets and clipping on curtains. Hey it was only 9pm but we were excited to be on our overnight train to Bangkok and seeing ‘The Big Mango’, so we got into the spirit and our comfortable births for the night. The only hazard of the overnight train is the danger of rolling out of the top bunk with the bumpy journey, but we survived, arriving to early morning Bangkok before 7am. To our surprise, only a few days after the military coup, there were no soliders to be seen at the train station so after a strong coffee we made our way to our accommodation in Silom.
