Thalia in Thailand #1: Bewildered in Bangkok

So for a couple days earlier this month, my family and I visited Bangkok and tried to fit as much as we could into a 48-hour visit. Mum, Keir and I flew for seven hours back from Perth and Dad met us from London, having flown for twelve hours. Meeting half way was rather awesome - we'd somehow managed to plan it so Dads's flight from Heathrow was due to arrive a mere ten minutes before ours, however, as his was delayed, our genius plans went to shambles. Fortunately, we managed to have a mini Fairweather family reunion in Suvarnabhumi airport before going to explore the city.

I've got a collection of photos from the two days we were there which I've just put into a photo diary. As we weren't there for that long, our aim was just to see as much as we could; not spending too long in one place. The end result was a lot of rushing, sweating (it was very hot) and adventure. Bangkok was undoubtedly the most fast-paced of our Thai trio, yet was the perfect place to start off our experience. I hope you like the photos!

I'll be back tomorrow with my next installment of Thalia in Thailand, when we went further north to the beautiful city of Chiang Mai.

Have you ever been to Bangkok? If so - what did you think of it?

P.S the title 'Thalia in Thailand' simply had to be a thing. Having spent the first six months of owning my phone not to autocorrect my name to Thailand, I figured the similarity was too good to miss.

    Auto correct always tries to change my name to Thailand too!
