Day 11, Chiang Mai - Bangkok

View Beautiful Northern Thailand on Astreia's travel map.

A whole day off!! Well until 16.30pm. After 10 days we could finally sleep until at least 8am!!
That day we went shopping. There were a few shopping malls, and we visited both of them. First we went to Kad Suan Kaew, later to Central Aiport Plaza. It was fun The first ne was nicer, but it only had one floor you could actually shop. The second one was just too big....with a lot of the same things, but still very fun to look around.

So we got back to the hotel in time, and left with mini vans to the Chiang Mai Railway Station. The train was already there and we were an hour early, so we stopped by the 7/11 and got a few things to eat. In the train we got a dinnerbox, with a few sandwiches, a muffin and some fruit.
Our Dutch guide thought of a good April fool's joke...he told everyone the train had a 4 hour delay because somthing was wrong with the locomotive...everyone believed him (you would too if you saw the train) and no one thought of the date. So everyone was a bit down until he said it was a joke. We left at 6pm, back towards Bangkok where we would arrive around 7 am next day.

i wasn't hungry so that night i ate one sandwich...i ate the rest at breakfast the next day. At around 9pm we left for the ...restaurant...the wagon where drinks were served. Allmost the entire group was there except for a few who stayed behind at the sleepingwagon. W had a lot of fun and laughs, until the personnel kicked us out at 10.30pm. And so everyone went to sleep. Somewhat, or at least trying to. The sort of wake-up call was at 5.30...
Everyone was quite awake though...and glad when we could leave the train around 7.30 am. We had breakfast at a hotel closeby Bacgkok Railway Station and after that we got into the buses that would take us to our hotels, in our case Jomtien Grand Palace.
