Phil's guided run through Bangkok

"it was so special, seeing close up parts you would miss otherwise. My guide tried hard to show me parts not normally seen, explaining so much as we trotted along. It was not a fast pace, simply didn’t need to be (also as she was on taper for the Bangkok marathon!) but the sights, sounds and smells were real Bangkok (dried fish market was a bit testing smell wise!).
Running in Bangkok is also quite challenging, uneven surfaces, erratic traffic, hot, high humidity and pollution. We started at hotel, worked outwards and train back in to avoid the worst of the congestion and pollution. Ratchanee was a superb guide, arranged through #Go!Runningtours. If I ever come back to Bangkok a similar adventure will be a first on my list of things to do, it was almost a half marathon!"
