From china we flew into Bangkok, and spent just over a week in the city.
On arrival it was so clear it was completely different to China. There was no spitting on the floor everyone spoke English and no children going to the toilet ion the middle of the street, a good first impression.
This half of our trip was based on the lower half of Thailand. From Bangkok we flew down to Phuket as it was somehow cheaper than getting a very very long train or bus!
