Back to Bangkok

We headed back to Bangkok to rest up and get ready for our trip to Burma/Myanmar. Mostly, we laid around reading and watching movies and tv shows on the laptop, but we did do a few cool things.

The first cool thing we did was head back to Terminal 21 mall. This place is so fun, both for shopping and for eating. I bought some new clothes and we ate sushi and Mexican food and more Mexican food. It was bliss.

We did some more shopping and happened to catch a boisterous and colorful celebration for Chinese Lunar New Year, complete with confetti, firecrackers, and drums. It was exciting!! 

Another cool thing we did was go have a fancy (and expensive!) drink on the rooftop bar of Lebua Tower. It's the highest outdoor bar in Bangkok and the views were mesmerizing. It was fun to get dressed up (in a new dress!) and wear make up for the first time in months. It was a nice respite from the grungy backpacker look I usually sport these days. :)

  1. What an amazing view from the tower - wow! Definitely worth the new dress and makeup :) I think it's great to get 'dressed up' when you're a backpacker; makes you feel like a princess :)
