Day 2 27th March Time to Explore Bangkok Pt 1

Ferry to Wat Po

After a full breakfast of eggs and bacon we finally left the hotel.  The first thing that hit me was the humidity – from the coolness of the hotel it was like hitting a brick wall.  My older brother gave me a bit of advice about the heat – he said just accept it.  If you go around complaining about it the heat will get to you and you won’t enjoy yourself.  Just drink plenty of water.  So that’s what I tried to do for the next 3 months in South East Asia.
We found the city’s monorail and got on board and from there our aim was to get a ferry and explore some of the city’s temples.  It was clean and air conditioned – almost too nice to get off.  We made it to our first destination – a place called Saphan Taksin but didn’t know how to get to the ferry stop. Again our map was found wanting.  Once we had worked out which side of the river we were on – always a good start – we tried to take a short cut down a rather scruffy road.  It came to a dead end – all eyes were on us as we walked back.  This street was terribly dirty with numerous broken down cars.  One had no wheels and was literally crammed full of rubbish.
