Hitting the town!
After several days of “wat-hopping”, we decided to take some time to wind down and do some shopping. What better place to do that than Bangkok? Some friends that we met at the hotel were talking about Siam Square and the Pratunam area. We decided to check it out and all I can say is- shopper’s PARADISE. With market stalls, malls, and shops as far as the eye can see, it’s hard not to walk away with something you love at an amazing price. Erin bought some gorgeous silk scarves, Sherri found amazing sapphires, rubies and jewelry, and I bought some new designer jeans and tops at an amazing price (Diesel jeans for $15CAD!!!) and a (not-so) designer knock-off bag. We spent the afternoon on a raft on the klongs (canals) off the Chao Phraya River looking at the floating markets and grabbing some local cuisine.
Last night we went out on the town. We went down to Pat Pong which, along with great shopping of course, had amazing nightlife. The people are so friendly here and we’ll be sad to go. On the other hand, I can’t wait to see what Phuket has in store for us!
