So after five days in Bangkok it’s time to move on to Myanmar (Burma) in the morning. As a place to start Bangkok has been pretty easy. The public transport system is convenient and cheap, everyone speaks English and the hostel is clean, air-conditioned and pretty quiet.
Navigating through the crowds of Chinese tourists makes it a challenge but the Grand Palace complex is worth seeing. As of course is the Songkran festival which is still drawing crowds into the city. Khao San Road is like a Thai version of Kuta, lots of tourists and lots of stores and stalls catering to travellers.
Tomorrow I’ll arrive in Yangon mid-way through the Burmese version of New Year including their own water festival. Should be fun!
