Southeast Asia Report 3: Railway from Bangkok to Vientian

At the Bangkok station

At 3 am, I finally got to Bangkok, but one of my Thai friends didn’t turn up. I decided to stay over the night in the airport, before going into the city at 7 am by bus. After exchanging 50 US$ for 1600Bahts (1$ = 31B), I took a shuttle bus for 150B, which was a bit expensive for me. In the bus, I saw an Italian man with a big blue backpack. He was going to Pakse in Laos.
