lumpini night bazaar, bangkok, thailand

out of all the bazaars i ended up visiting here - i liked this one the most. the quality of the stuff on sale was good and it had an outdoor entertainment area and also a ferris wheel i got to ride.

the 'roue de paris'

if i remember correctly, a go on the wheel costs about 100 baht and you get to go round 3 times. there are fantastic views of the bazaar and bangkok

me on the wheel

out of all the buddha images i've seen on sale to tourists these were my favorite ones and the lady working on the stall was super nice. i will return here when i go back to bangkok to take my flight and purchase one.

the people i ended up sharing a tuk-tuk home with. they were from Bali and there were 5 of us in one tuk-tuk including the driver. they were super-friendly and told me i should go and visit Bali - they were sight-seeing aswell and were staying at a hotel that was posher than mine in Khao San Rd.
