Simply an arrival day, or should I say night, into the capital of Thailand-Bangkok.
After a ten hour flight from Seattle on Korean Airlines, we made my way to customs. Be sure to ask Adventure Life for a quick-pass through customs as the queue is about two hours. We grabbed our bags, cleared security and found our guide eagerly awaiting our arrival. Typically, traffic in Bangkok, a city of ten million, is bumper to bumper but arrival into Thailand at 11pm and exiting the airport around 1:30 am allowed us to quickly navigate the desolate streets. Our hotel was perched on the banks of the Chao Phraya River which flows to the Gulf of Thailand and then onto the Indian Ocean. Riva Surya is a beautiful hotel perfect for our first night in Bangkok.
