Singapore is perfectly located to travel around in Asia. Since I had some days off, I spontaneously decided to visit my friend in Bangkok. I met Parn and Sebastian in Australia – Parn and I had some classes together and I owe her a lot for pulling me through all the assignments and exams. I enjoyed the days with them showing me around their hometown, trying all the food [yes, I ate the maggot, but the face I made was not appropriate to put it online].
One day I went to the Great Palace on my own, where I met three boys who accompanied me on that day. We tried to escape the very touristic centre of Bangkok and crossed the river by ferry. A friend of mine told me that I could find a local market over there, which we did and where we had lunch. As our ways parted, I strolled around the streets on my own, but as I got annoyed by everyone trying to sell random things, I asked a guy to give me a ride back to the ferry on his scooter.
