Day 91 - Leaving Bangkok
This will be my last day in Bangkok, at least for now as I will be travelling through here a few more times on my way to Chiang Mai, Myanmar and Malaysia.
I went to get my train ticket for the evening train to Vientianne, Laos, and headed to do some more sightseeing after spending the last days mostly in touristy areas.
One of the first temples on today's list was Wat Traimit to see the Golden Buddha, helped by the fact that it's very close to the train station and Chinatown, another place wanted to explore.
After wandering around Chinatown a bit and through the market street there we arrived at the last stop, the Wat Ratchaburana temple.
After having a parting beer with Tom, I headed to the train station to get my 20:00 train to Vientianne. It was nice spending the time in Bangkok and with Tom but I am glad to be on the road again and headed towards new places.
Bangkok is a great place but for me it lacked the chaos and craziness of Hanoi for example, even the more seedy places are well run and organised.
