China town and Bangkok nightlife!

Today we visited China Town in Bangkok. It took us a while to get there as we somehow managed to direct a taxi half way across town in the wrong direction! Oops! But we made it there and enjoyed some tasty spring rolls at a restaurant on the river before venturing into China Town!

China Town was crazy! Soooo many people! But it was great to look at all the stores and all the random things that were being sold there. Jo manged to find a stall that was selling only material patches so stocked up on all the country patches she needed to adorn her rucksack on getting home.

Keeping our fingers crossed our visas would be granted, we made our way back to the Vietnamese embassay. Success!! That was much easier than we both anticipated :-)

Back to the hostel to get ready for a night out in the city...

Evening antics:

First stop...the nightmarket. Bustling, busy, noisy...pretty awesome!! Our main mission was to buy some shoes that weren't flip flops or trainers so that we would be let into the fancy Sky Bar (see below). Mission accomplished, we enjoyed a beer on the edge of the market which was a great spot for people watching.

We then went to the Sky Bar which is located on the 63rd floor of the Lebua hotel (and featured in the film "The Hangover Part II"). It was awesome! The views of Bangkok are incredible from up there and totally worth the extortionate price of a G&T and having to buy a new pair of shoes!

Back to the nightmarket where we went our separate ways for a short time to buy each other a Christmas present. The theme for these gifts...tat! The tackier the better. I for one can't wait to unwrap mine!!

Then onto a couple of bars where we drank a bit too much, made some British friends, danced like crazy people (and yes, some Gangham style was involved), convinced some nice Dutch men to escort us to a Ping Pong show, went to said Ping Pong show (where a rogue ping pong hit a mortified Jo in the arm) and then ended up in a McDonalds! By the time we got back to our hostel the sun hadn't started to rise...it was fully up! I'll let Jo explain the hangovers from hell we experienced that day...
