Bangkok Again

Bangkok travelogue picture
Once again I find myself in Bangkok. I guess it boils down to the fact that Bangkok is central base for travel in SE Asia and relatively cheap to get to. I have been 3 previous times and enjoy myself greatly on every occasion. It is an easy place for a solo female traveler to navigate and explore. Since I have seen all the basic Bangkok sites on previous trips I did some exploring. Did a lot of walking! Hit the ChaChauk sp? weekend market again. Exit the skytrain at MoChit station for the market. Spent two days exploring the river areas and warehouses. I found it easy to just enter a warehouse along the river and walk around with no one saying anything. I traveled from one to another and eventually found myself directly across from Wat Arun. Great photo opp. Found some interesting herb shops along the way. I hit the Ambassador Hotel for lunch one day. I remembered that they have an excellent lunch buffet for $6 US. So much variety and even sushi. Great deal if you are hungry.

Favourite spots:
Forensic Museum in Bangkok is great. Not for the faint hearted. Just walking the riverfront in and out of alleys. Hiring a boat for a relaxing trip on the river. Of course, the weekend market. $6 all you can eat at the Ambassador Hotel for lunch.

What's really great:
