Only two days now and still a fair amount to do. Still have to sort some insurance out! I did however manage to get some travelers cheques (USD) and some Baht from the travel agents the other day. I also booked my accommodation for three days in Bangkok, staying at a place called Phiman Water View. Looking at their Web site appears to be a really nice place, cheap too, right on the water front.
Ill update once I get there.
