View Great Escape to the East! on Tam-Jo's travel map.
A nice early 7am flight to Bangkok for us today! Needless to say our brains weren't fully engaged at 5am when we left our hostel which made it difficult to sort out the double booking that had been made by the hostel for our taxi to the airport! Oh dear.
On route to Bangkok we had a couple of hours stopover in Kuala Lumpur airport which was most productive! Jo managed to work out how to change her flight home in March having decided to extend her trip by two weeks to go to the Philippines, buy a Clinique chubby stick in the shade she's been after for a while(!), and locate a Starbucks for us to get our iced coffee fix for the day. I bought some new sunglasses as an early Christmas present to myself. We boarded the flight to Bangkok very pleased with ourselves!
On arriving at our hostel in Bangkok we were pleasantly shocked at how nice the hostel was. So modern, a huge bedroom and a fancy bathroom!! We feel like we're in the lap of luxury here :-)
This afternoon we went to the MBK which is a gigantic shopping centre...8 floors! The food court was amazing...there was a food station for each type of cuisine you can imagine. We opted for a random mix of Greek and Italian food! Yummy!
Our evening was spent on some much needed grooming...exfoliating, facials, foot filing etc....we now feel a bit more human and ready to face the bright lights of the city!
