When we finally drove off the highway into the streets of the city it was crazy to see the contrast between the rich and poor. There would be people on the streets selling items for close to nothing and right beside them there was a massive building with business people walking in and out. And one other thing, the streets are HECTIC! There was scooters driving in all directions – remember that game Temple Run? That’s exactly how I pictured myself walking around. Definitely made myself a little mental note “Do not get lost, or worse, get run over by a scooter”.
When we finally arrived at our hotel Ad Lib, my bf and I unpacked. By this point I was beyond starving. We ended up walking around the streets exploring the night markets while on the hunt for some local Thai cuisine. I’ve heard from several people that the Thai food would be really good, and for all those who raved about the food, it was BY FAR the highlight of my entire trip.
