With a grueling overnight bus ride and unbelievably slow “express” ferry, we’ve finally arrived in our next destination - the island of Ko Phangan - after spending a crazy and sweaty 5 days in Bangkok. From visiting countless markets, to exploring random back alleys, to becoming experts in local public transport (including boat), to eating our weight in pineapple and watermelon, to partying with the locals (and tourists), all in temperatures hovering around 100 degrees, we felt like we had gotten a good amount from the city. It was great fun, awesome people, and overall a delicious, sweaty experience.
One great way to escape the brutal heat and humidity: 100 baht for day access to a nearby pool. We knew that was too expensive, and we didn’t care. It was worth it.
