Travel travel travel

We left Pai on Friday and made the 3 hour journey back to Chiang Mai for one night. Then on Saturday we had our overnight train back to Bangkok which took 14 hours, arriving at 6:30am Sunday morning. We had one night booked at a hotel near the airport so it was it was easy for us to get back there for our flight to Hanoi, Vietnam the next day. 
When we arrived at the airport it was like deja zu as we were told by the check in lady that we needed to show her proof we were leaving Vietnam within 14 days as she wouldn't let us check in until we could prove this. So another mad dash to an Internet cafe and we managed to book a bus journey from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh, Cambodia (which we were planning to do anyway) and we finally checked in. We were reading the night before about whether we needed to book anything and everyone said something different so we thought we would chance it and learnt from our mistake. Next time make sure we can prove we are leaving the country! 

The flight only took 1 hour 40 minutes and we had arrived. Driving from the airport to our hotel was an experience to say the least. The roads out here are mental. Like no joke scary. There are so many mopeds around and cars it's hard to know who has priorty as everyone just seems to go for it.
And we thought the car journey was bad. Once we checked in to our hotel we thought we would explore the area and it's pretty mental trying to walk the streets too. Mopeds seem to come from left, right and centre here. Anyway, first night we went for some dinner and then had a few drinks in some bars before making our way to a backpack hostel where everyone seems to go.
