I took a 1:00 a.m. nonstop flight from Bengaluru and arrived in Bangkok around 6:00 a.m. today. The Bangkok airport was not as visually appealing as Bengaluru’s, but it was very convenient in some practical ways. In short order I had withdrawn some Thai Baht from an ATM, purchased a local SIM card for my mobile phone, and boarded the shiny airport train going in the direction of my hotel, Wendy House.
Still recovering from a recent bout with the Common Cold, I had little energy to do any sightseeing. I checked into my hotel, then spent some time wandering around the Bangkok Art & Culture Centre near my hotel, where I saw an exhibit of the work of Japanese artist Chihiro Iwasaki.
Below are some views of Bangkok from the Chao Phraya River (photos taken by me on a boat).
