Day 2 (Thursday, September 29)
It was already 5 o’clock when I fell asleep. As a result, I was woken up by the sound of knocking on the railing outside the door at 8 o’clock in the morning. The hostel did not book tickets for the bus and boat (the language was also a bit difficult), so I went out to book tickets to Tao Island first. Find a travel agency, two choices: 1. Train sleeper + feeder bus + boat 1090 Thai baht; 2. Long-distance bus + boat 900 Thai baht. Because the long-distance bus could not lie flat, I finally chose the train sleeper. (There are still two trains to choose from. I followed the recommendation and booked the one at 7: 30 p.m. And the other half at more than 10: 00 p.m.) (Later, I found out that we were too impatient to reach Kaoshan Road, and the price I booked seemed to be slightly higher than that of other travel agencies.)
Scheduled the itinerary, centering. Wandering around Kaoshan Road, the streets are full of small shops selling clothes, and most of the restaurants are western pizza. At a restaurant on a nearby road that seemed to be run by local people, they had lunch with curry fried shrimps and mixed vegetables, totaling 380 Thai baht.
In the afternoon, I went to the Jade Buddha Temple behind the Imperial Palace. I didn’t invite a tour guide or do my homework, so I basically took a cursory look and sighed at the resplendent and magnificent scenery and ended. There is a Buddhist temple in which monks chant sutras. Many locals sit and pray together. There is also a hall in which the king’s throne or coronation is not allowed to be photographed.
The palace ticket also includes a place called Cloud Palace (valid for 7 days). The people in the consultation office said it was beautiful, but it was already over 3 o’clock when we came out and the place was closed. Because our later schedule has been decided, we will not return to Bangkok until the last day, so we have to leave regrets.
I went back to Kaoshan Road to continue my stroll. I found a very pink, tender, bright and Q Thai fast food restaurant at the corner of XXXX and XXXX. The two dishes I ordered tasted very good and the price was very cheap, but the quantity was slightly less.
I went back to the hotel to take my luggage and took a taxi to the railway station. The road was very blocked, 80 baht.
Thai trains, especially sleepers, are really “adventures” to me. I didn’t know where to go with my ticket. I was scared silly when I finally found our carriage after asking N station staff. It is clearly a non-air-conditioned hard-seat car 10 years ago in China. Where is the sleeper? Below is a face-to-face single seat, above is a similar storage box opened by how. By the way, we bought the “upper berth” to save 50 Thai baht. Beibei said that your luggage was placed on the luggage rack, so it was called “Upper”. My heart said no, it was clearly “sleeping”. But do you sleep with the two straps hanging above? Isn’t that the kung fu of Yang Guo and Little Dragon Lady? ! Listening to the conductor’s promise of “yes, yes, it will be done for you within an hour”, he sat nervously and waited silly. As a result, after the train left, Iraq really turned the hard seat into a soft sleeper one by one from one end of the carriage to the other! Its magical degree can only be compared with the “cool Kaka” Transformers’ large deformation. I can’t describe it. Watch the video.
