Now seasoned Thailand travelers the kids were excited to be spending a layover in Bangkok, as long as it involved a visit to MBK, so they could challenge each other to Mario Kart!
Nothing like travelling half way round the world to play a video game! So off we went to Bangkok’s shopping strip for arcade games, watch shopping for the kids and lunch. They have completely rebuilt Central Plaza and Siam Centre since we were here last year. The burnt out shell of the riots has been replaced by an amazing shopping precinct that is bigger than ever. We were also on a mission to buy Robin an Ipad! Yes Marc, he has gone to the dark side! I am sick of trying to fight him for mine. Alas they were all sold out in Bangkok….. Five hours later shopping bags in tow we caught the new airport express rail. City to airport in 17 mins – very impressive! See you in Chiang Mai!
