    On the right track

    You're on the right track! Keep a few minutes we'll come to the end of this little alley.

    You've probably noticed a few dozen tiny little alleys branching off of the main one you're walking on. One of the great joys in exploring Bangkok is picking a random little alley like these ones and seeing what's on the other end. Sometimes it'll just be a dead end, but other times you'll end up in a garden, or back on the street, or even in a tiny little restaurant where you'll get invited to join and drink a glass of lao khao, or Thai moonshine. Sure, the strange looks often come fast and furious, but in the land of smiles, a smile will take you a long way.

    Continue along the alley, following it as it curves to the left, then right and exits onto a road.
