We finally arrived in Bangkok after a delay of one day due to the immigration mishap at the Thai/Malaysian border. The Thai train was due to arrive at 7am but was delayed till 1pm.
The traffic in Bangkok was really bad. It turns out the distance between the railway station and the hotel was really small, however due to the traffic jams it took a long time for us to get there. So I arrived at the hotel feeling a bit grumpy.
But all the grumpiness dissipated then Hotel Vie upgraded our 2 rooms to sumptuous suites. There are lots of space with a living room and an enormous walk-in shower. After a day of using the train shower over the squat toilet, I was truly looking forward to this luxurious clean shower room.
That evening we went to watching Percy Jackson 2 at the Enigma Theatre in Bangkok. This is a very special movie going experience. Expensive but what a treat! My good friend Tim who is a frequent traveller to Bangkok told me of this. The ultimate luxurious cinema going in Bangkok – sofa beds with cushions and duvet plus waitress service! A hot meal, drinks and pop corn is included in the price. This is definite far cry from my local Vue Cinema in London.
