The bus to Bangkok surprisingly turned out to be a rather posh one complete with a hostess who provided us with blankets, snacks & drinks. Arriving at Bangkok bus terminal was just pure insanity even at 6am this place was heaving with people. With a lot of effort we finally found our stand for bus 3 & it was off to Khao San Road!

The Emerald Buddha & grand palace was 500 Baht to enter (around £10) This was tourist attraction like no other & the crowds were insane but this place was worth it. It was breathtaking to see such beautiful buildings covered entirely in tiny mosaics glistening underneath the sunlight. The Grounds were huge & it was easy for the hours to slip by but definitely time well spent.
