Thailand wasn’t in our itinerary initially but it’s the route we had to take in order to reach Cambodia.

 

So off we go.

It took us a while to reach the train station as none of the tuk tuk drivers knew what train means. It took us a lot of hand gestures to finally make them understand.

And this station is like 40 minutes outside the city so you better get a head start.

We were lucky to grab the last 2 sleepers’ class ticket.

It’s an overnight journey so…..

Don’t worry, this train was a short 5-minute journey to the border of Laos.

Getting through the immigration was easy and straight forward……you’ll figure out the reason I’m saying this in the next post.

Hello Bangkok!

We booked a hotel 10 mins away from the train station.

I forgot the name of this hotel; the interior is clean and modern, a comfortable one night stop.

We didn’t really know what to do so we decided to hit the malls.

After being in Laos for 5 days, Thailand seemed so modern in comparison lol.

Little did we know that the ground outside the mall was one of the major places for the riot.

It was like a riot bazaar; there were a lot of booths selling souvenirs.

Such opportunists these people *applauds*

Ordered green curry and seafood tom yam for lunch.

The Thais certainly know their food; I would so go back for these.

We decided to watch a movie to kill time. And we thought since we’re already in Thailand, why not watch a Thai movie?

Chose a soapy love story and bought the combo popcorn + drink + cushion just for the fun of it.

I still have that cushion btw.

Nothing aggressive; just a talk given by one of the politicians.

We walked to the train station at 4.30 am to catch the 5.55 am train to Aranyaprathet; it wasn’t really scary, the city was pretty much alive by that time.

Now this was when the fun started.

 

To be continued Winking smile
