Despite a love affair with Bangkok, we have decided to live in Cambodia – Asha has got a good job, we have found a great apartment and we really love Phnom Penh. We needed to do a Visa run – leaving Cambodia so that we could re-enter with business/NGO visas.
What better excuse to spend a week in our favourite shopping/eating/getting massaged destination Bangkok. It also meant we could again hang out/mooch off our favourite Bangkok resident Hendo, and swap stories with Anna who flew in from Melbourne to say hi.
We flew from Phnom Penh to Bangkok to spend a week doing all of our favourite things – eating great Thai food (and a lot of Japanese); doing lots of shopping (Cambodians don’t seem to like cotton) at MBK, T21 and CentralWorld; going to the food court and iMax at Paragon (the Batman!); having massages (5 massages in 7 days) and spending time with friends. We also visited the Backpacker ghetto of Khao San road, took a boat trip along the river and managed to avoid buying drinks for some super friendly prostitutes at a bar in Patpong.
