When I first heard about Sak Yant tattoo's during my many hours of deskwarming, reading travel blogs I knew that I'd one day find myself in the 'hot seat'. As I wrapped up my travel in Cambodia I realized it was time to plan for the next leg of my journey, soon finding myself in Bangkok. Through word of mouth and some online blogs I've heard such mixed reviews about the city so I really didn't know what to think or how to prepare myself. I also knew that I wouldn't be jumping right into the tourist attractions as I want to save those for when my friend Laura comes out to join me at the end of April. Ultimately I wound up with only one plan while spending my first few days in Bangkok and that was to make the trek out to Wat Bang Prah for my Sak Yant tattoo.
High on the tourist track for a reason, home of good food (mostly) happy people, rich history and culture. Thailand as many tourist soon learn is just easy. Easy to visit, easy to get around and even easier to stay.
