The next morning our heads were pretty sore so we had a sleep in. After we met lots of fellow travelers who gave us some fantastic advice and we also read our lonely planet book. Everything it said not to do in the book we had done the previous night in regards to the tuk tuk drivers. Oh well lesson learned. We thought lets give Bangkok a second chance. We found some temples and decided to take a bus for 7 baht each to visit them. Wat Pho temple is from the 16th century with the largest reclining Buddha . 45m long and 15m high. Stunning and beautiful.Then we caught a ferry over the river to another temple, Wat Arun.We had a really old Monk bless us and gave us wrist band to wear, apparently we will have good luck for a whole year. We are heading to Chiang Mai in a couple of days, hoping its a bit slower paced for us.
