We’re up and out early, locate the Skytrain round the corner and head off down to the river for some sightseeing.
The river itself is a surging brown flow full of debris (vegetation, coconuts, the odd plank of wood) with a rather terrifying current – you wouldn’t want to fall in. Activity on the river never stopped – it was just incredible. These boats moved really fast… I loved it.The ferry dropped us off at a temple. We were the only ones there; a little haven of peace and quiet.
After a long morning wandering around as tourists, we went back to the hotel for afternoon tea/cocktails then went out round Patpong market again all evening (endlessly fascinating – Neil told me his stories about the ping pong balls and razor blades).
Found a really good little restaurant – Ton Kao Surawongse – in Surawongse Road round the back of the market.
Still couldn’t make my mind up between the Jimmy Choo or the Hermes knock offs and decided to sleep on it again.
