Arrived in Bangkok

Here we are in Bangkok, at the start of our winter adventure.
Started off slowly by checking into our hotel, (£16 per night, compact and bijou, surprisingly good location) and slept for the first three hours.
Our hotel is about 100 metres from an amazing shopping mall and we have just eaten our tea at a great table overlooking the Asoke train station.
It is so built up around here that it is difficult to work out where the ground is.
We are about seven stories up in the photo although the shopping mall also seems to have a couple of floors underground. To get here we crossed the road by walking up loads of steps and through the station which is directly above the road. It is like a street in itself and above that this is another raised walkway leading to I know not where.
