22nd – 25th January – 29th January – 1st February

Alison (our friend from home) has a school friend, Rhiannon, who is currently working in Bangkok. She has an apartment right in the centre of the city, a world away from the usual traveller haunt of Khao San Road. We were looking forward to seeing a real piece of Bangkok, and avoiding the Khao San altogether. This wasn’t to be however as the bus from Ko Chang dropped us in the heart of Khao San – after all, what person who just came from Ko Chang would want to go anywhere else!

After trekking across Bangkok, we made it to the apartment and met Rhiannon. The place was amazing – our home for the next 3 nights was one of the nicest places that we have stayed so far on our trip.

See the next post for details on what happened next!

10 days later, and Rhiannon still had house guests. Sam had made herself at home in the plush apartment, hit the shops with the credit card, and provided housewife services to Rhiannon. When Ady returned to the flat from his little 5 star holiday, the girls had to get used to having a man about the house again!

After Ady recovered we spent the Saturday out and about with Rhiannon. It was a day of firsts where we took Rhiannon for her first ride on a local bus! We also took a trip up the Klong (canal) on a commuter boat, another first and will give Rhiannon a new way to get to work! To end the evening we had drinks (Ady’s non alcoholic!) at the Vertigo bar, perched 61 stories above Bangkok city skyline. The view was amazing as you can see in the photos!
