First Stop- Bangkok, Thailand!

Well, yes, this may be our third city on our entire trip, but Bangkok really marks the beginning of our adventures together. It’s the first place that’s new to all three of us and boy, are we ready and excited!

And guess where we booked our hotel! None other than where they filmed Hangover II! Well, sort of. We didn’t pay the exorbitant prices for those rooms, but rented someone’s condo in the same building for pretty dirt cheap instead.

This is Bangkok!

Didn’t seem like much when we first arrived…

 

Bangkok has a much prettier night view.

But we had underestimated the view at night. =)

 

Can you recognize this place? It's the bar at the very top of our hotel.

Here’s the bar at the very top of our hotel. Do you recognize it? Those stairs are where they photographed the following:

From Hangover 2!

 

The stairs were closed to photo-takers at night so we missed our chance to recreate this moment.

So upon arriving and unpacking, we ventured out for dinner and sought our way to the backpacker’s district, Kao San Road. We started off by taking a $0.20 ferry ride… in the wrong direction.

It was a worthwhile detour. =)
