One Night in Bangkok

One Night in Bangkok

One Night in Bangkok.  Do you remember that song?  It was 1985 and I thought about it as I’m writing this post.  What a wonderful city Bangkok is.  The people are magnificent.  Do you know that they bow and press their hands together as they say thank you….. and everyone does it.  They’re truly wonderful and respectful people.  

Well we didn’t experience much of the city today because we got here shortly after 2pm.  Thunderstorms abounded and actually caused the delay of our luggage at the airport.  Fantastic hurls of lightning and the boom of thunder.  Oh yeah, and it’s still 85 or so degrees and very humid.  

We’re staying at the Royal Orchid in the middle of the old town area.  It’s beautiful and right on the river.  Here are a few photos of the area.

Since it was raining, we decided to have dinner at the hotel in a wonderful, authentic old Thai restaurant.  Here’s what we had… a small amuse bouche from the chef – fried cod, a medley of satay, very spicy hot and sour soup, spicy shrimp, and pork wide noodles.

 

All in all, a great way to conclude our first night in Bangkok.  Check out that song.  

In the meanwhile, I’ll end tonight’s post with this dance video from our night at the restaurant….. lovely.  Good night and follow us again.

  1. I love the tree with the hat lights? and the colorful elephants in the hotel lobby. Special things you don’t see everywhere else in the world make your experience unique. How’s the food?

    1. I loved those hat lights too – very cool. We had several Belgian beers there – who would have guessed. The food is very good. I stick to the local dishes and Rich sticks with things he knows.

  2. P.S.- One Night in Bangkok is one of Faisal’s all time fav songs⛩??
