Yes, after all the Cambodia drama, we decided to skip Kratie, Siem Reap, Angkor Wat and Phnom Pehn and just cross the border into Thailand (across the Mekong from Vientiane).
It took us a few hours in a minivan (which ended up smuggling suscipicious merchandise across the cambodian border and using us as a cover while making deliveries in the suburbs of Pakse, but that is another story altogether), one night bus, one ride across the Lao-Japanese Friendship bridge and one night train, but we made it to Bangkok.
The best of Bangkok? The Chatuchak weekend market, the largest market in Southest Asia, and the street food. People rave about street food and food courts in Singapore, but what about Bangkok?
We love it and can’t wat to come back.
By the way, any idea what’s in that picture?
