Back to Bangkok

Monday – February 21, 2011 –

Today was my last full day in Thailand and I wanted to make the most of it. This morning, I woke up around 10 a.m. at my resort in Pattaya.

After walking my beach on the Gulf of Thailand, I came back to the hotel for some breakfast. It was a fantastic Thai and western continental breakfast. Then I checked out of Siam Bayshore and took the second bus back to Bangkok after missing the first bus of the morning.

Bangkok's Golden Mount

Bangkok’s Golden Mount

Upon arrival at the airport in Bangkok, I left my luggage at left luggage before traveling into the city to tour Khao San Road for some shopping. Then I visited the Golden Mount, a Buddhist temple in central Bangkok covered in gold and overlooking the rest of the city. The views were spectacular! I met a Ukrainian girl and her Russian friends and we had dinner together. I was able to practice some of my very bad Russian, but they spoke English pretty well. I have met some interesting people during my travels and it’s probably one of favorite surprises and memories from all of my travels.

After dinner, I headed back via taxi towards the airport around 22:00 p.m. Upon arrival at the Silver Gold Garden Suvarnabhumi Airport​ off On-Nut Road (seriously, that is the name!), I took a shower and packed up for Tuesday. The hotel had air conditioning, a shower, minibar, satellite television and an airport transfer for only $20 a night! Try to beat that value in any major western city. I went to bed for the last time in Thailand around 23:30 p.m. I will never forget this amazing trip!
