Back in Thailand again...

...staying in Bangkok, where it is raining every day, just as it was in England for the whole 2 months I was there. It is of course a lot warmer here than it was in the UK.

I am lucky enough to have had a few days free of my ongoing website work recently, and I did the "tourist" thing, exlporing Bangkok properly for the first time despite having been coming here for over 4 years now - I never had enough spare time before. I have to say that I think it is one of the loveliest cities in the whole world - the royal palaces, the Buddhist monasteries and the floating markets are wonderful to see, cruising around the river and the canals is really relaxing and fun, and there are so many excellent shopping areas that even I (pretty much a confirmed "non-shopper") enjoyed browsing around.

Here is a really informative website to visit if you want to know more: www.bangkok.com
