Day 10 – Thailand and Ladyboys
Last night we arrived in Thailand and stopped in a small town called Chang Khong where we went out for another group meal. A few of us decided to go and find a bar so we followed signs for a British pub and ended up trawling through dodgy back streets and alleyways until eventually finding a nice little place. We ended up meeting some other backpackers from Holland, Germany and Spain who were all travelling the world. Not just Asia. We ended up having some shots together and playing some pool. The walls were covered in writing from the past few years from travellers all over the world. There were a few quotes which I really, really liked!
This morning we headed to Chang Mai and visited the white temple along the way. The afternoon consisted of a bike ride from a local tour guide here who showed us around his village in the countryside.
This evening we headed out to the local markets or otherwise known as the bazaar. Had an evening meal then went to watch a ladyboy show which was absolutely hilarious and great fun. Our guide for us front row seats and table service. I have some decent photos from the first 15 minutes but many of the videos and photos we all have are definitely NSFW from the rest of the show. If anyone has me on Snapchat – you’ll see what I mean!
Tomorrow I’m heading into the jungle with another traveller to do a day of zip lining and high ropes with Gibbons so very much looking forward to that.
Tomorrow evening we have an overnight train to Bangkok where the tour ends so we will all be having a massive night out to all say goodbye to the family we have created over the past 2 weeks (and almost a month travelling for some of the group). Luckily I’m staying a few extra days in Bangkok and a few others are as well so we will explore what it has to offer and relax after an action packed trip before flying home next week.
