We finally made it. After a four hour weather delay in Hong Kong we made it to Bangkok. Of all the airports to be stuck in Hong Kong is probably one of the best to be stranded. On top of that, we did the unusual and upgraded to business class on Cathay Pacific. Cathay’s Business Class Lounge in HK is incredible. Anything you want they’ve got it.
This morning we woke up and headed down for breakfast. After breakfast we toured the rest of the hotel and settled down at the pool for a few hours. Our original plan was to lounge by the pool all day but we got a little anxious and decided to head into town for some shopping and massages.
After lunch we headed for the obligatory Thai massages. $7.50 for a one hour massage can’t be ignored. As soon as we left the spa we were caught unprepared in a tropical downpour. We eventually dried off and headed to a restaurant called Cabbages and Condoms, a restaurant highly recommended by some friends. Yes it’s a strange name, but the food was delicious and we will head back again before we leave. Then it was time to jump back on the Skytrain and head back to the hotel. It was a long and surprisingly busy first day. Tomorrow’s agenda: the pool.
Posted below are a few assorted photos from today.
