Bangkok - Our Last Day in Thailand

October 20

We spent the last day of our Thailand adventure in Bangkok which was perfect since we got to meet up with our awesome friend, Dawn, that we met during the Everest Base Camp trek.  She's from Texas but has been teaching English in Bangkok for the past two years and is loving Thailand (no plans to move back to the US any time soon)!  Dawn and her boyfriend, Donovan, met up with us at the Chatuchak market where we spent the day checking out the shops and having some of the amazing local food.  Chatuchak is one of the biggest markets in the world with so many stores selling everything you can imagine.  It would seriously take days to see everything there!

Just one of the many delicious vendors at Chatuchak

There's a pet store section of the market with lots of puppies, kittens, and some interesting pets for sale.

Yes, that is a squirrel for sale, and he has a collar around his neck!

There's also rows and rows of vendors selling pet clothing / outfits.  I wish I had some pictures to show, the outfits are seriously ridiculous and it seems like there are more pet clothes than human clothes if that's even possible in the market this size!

These little guys were so tiny, they almost look unreal.  So cute!

This store was pretty funny, in the art section.  They were selling life-sized monks for your home.  Kind of creepy when you walk by for the first time because they look real!

Afterwards, we went to happy hour at the Doubletree Hilton.  This is the view from our bedroom window.  Haven't been in a city this big in over a year, so we're experiencing some culture shock.

 And of course, this is the beautiful pool at the Doubletree which unfortunately we didn't get to use.  The hotel just opened a few months ago, so all the amenities are sparkling new and barely touched.
