THAILAND here I come - I fly out from Gatwick tomorrow evening and arrive in Bangkok Friday at 6pm. I've been primed to tell all the taxi touts crowding into the arrivals lounge that "No, this is NOT my first time in Thailand, it's my tenth - and I'm not taking any crap so f*** off", which seems a tad impolite, not to mention a downright lie, but hey. I'm booked into Big John's Backpacker Hostel - it's cheap and sounds cheerful - and I've been told how much the taxi fare should be (avoiding the toll road). We'll see.
