Second day, the Big Mango; Bangkok

The second day of our trip brought us into Bangkok.

After an early start this morning, out of Prachuap Khirikhan, we headed first for Cha'am, for breakfast, which was just under an hour away.
How much we liked Prachuap, how disappointing the hotel was, the aircon was leaking in such a way that the whole area in front of the bathroom was drenched with water, which was rather not very safe and enjoyable with the kids.

Cha'am is very near to Hua Hin and I like the feel of Cha'am, although we just had breakfast there, definitely a place to look closer into. Just for the record, Cha'am is a beach resort, popular with both Thais and Westerners.

Around noon we entered Bangkok and it took us a while to find our way to Legacy Suites in Sukhumvit, Soi 29, with all the one ways, no right turns allowed and other traffic rules around Sukhumvit, but we managed at last.

The day followed up as predicted yesterday, with lots of shopping at Siam Paragon an upscale shopping mall and Central Chitlom. At Paragon it would have been nice to visit the Aquarium at Siam Ocean World but we just didn't have the time.

Tomorrow we're off to Samut Prakan and the three headed Elephant or Chang Erawan, so keep your eyes posted!
