Our Farewell to Thailand
From Ko Lanta, we returned to Bangkok for a couple of days before coming home. Our second hotel was probably the nicest hotel we’ve ever stayed at.
Monks are highly respected in Thailand. Lisa spotted this sign on the (elevated) subway in Bangkok
A canal in Bangkok
A massive food market we had dinner at
We visited the neon market after passing it in a cab during our previous stay in Bangkok. We missed many of the large markets during the first stay, so we were determined to make up for it.
We found a small enclave of bars and restaurants called “Co-co walk” that seemed to be popular with locals (mostly younger people).
Crazy Bangkok traffic
We passed by a club called “Rock Pub” near our hotel a couple of times, and had to go in. We were glad we did. Where else are you going to see a local (original) band from the country of Bhutan playing rock/metal?
The view from our corner-suite hotel
We went back to the Chata Chuk weekend market, this time on the weekend when everything was open.
We were determined to have Khao Soi one last time. We found this delicious place that specializes in it.
Locals were feeding cats on the rooftops in this neighborhood near the river.
One last Chang to share. The view from our dinner spot was pretty nice.

Our last view of the sun in Thailand
It was sad to leave and return to the real world, but we were glad to have had a last full day in Bangkok. The return journey home was something else (leaving at midnight and traveling around the world), and by the time it was over we were (kind of) happy to be home.
