We enjoyed the taste of luxury in Chiang Mai so much there could be no looking back. We booked ourselves in Hotel J Pattaya for some R&R, alas the backpacker budget was blown wide open. We enjoyed 3 nights there before heading back to Bangkok for one last visit. This time only 5 stars would do (so Gem said anyway…), so the Banyan Tree was to be our home for the final 2 nights. Here we enjoyed stunning views of the city from our 46th floor room, not to mention the swimming pool on the 22nd floor. A thoroughly enjoyable experience topped off with an England win…at last eh!!
So after….6 Months, 25 weeks, 173 days, 16 flights, 9 overnight buses, 6 overnight trains, 5 boats, 56 rooms, 3 home-stays and 1 earthquake
