Asia Travel Part Three: Bangkok and Chiang Mai
On another note, Bangkok was pretty fabulous also. The Grand Palace, Wat Arun, and Wat Pho were beautiful and unlike anything I've ever seen. Bangkok feels different from other Asian cities I've visited. It has so much character, which is saying something in a world that increasingly feels like "anywhereville" where cities can start to feel interchangeable because of outside global influences. The tuk-tuks, temples, and ambiance make it memorable and unique. Next stop, Krabi, for some quality beach time.
