Thailand’s Blue Tiger: Day 3 (Scene 4)
Filming Location: Bangkok
Well, as I promised, here are photos from the top of Wat Arun’s pagoda.
Remember, if you want to go to the top, go ready to climb (bring good shoes and pants). The climb is really steep and the heat does not give you any extra lift.
The view from the top is worth the effort.
Look straight ahead and the Grand Palace will smile at you.
Of course, it is great to take a look at the Chao Phraya River. All type of boats and ship navigate its water. Small, big, colorful, monotone, traditional, modern, etc.
You can see the other buildings in the complex which were built using the well known Thai style.
After soaking into the beauty of Wat Arun, we pretty much repeated the previous day activities. We went to the Silom area to watch the Songran madness, got into the metro with hundreds of dripping wet youth and returned to the MBK mall.
The next day we were leaving to Chiang Mai. However, we already were ready to return to Bangkok. After touring the north and the old capitals, we were going to return to Bangkok. We didn’t buy any souvenirs because we decided to shop at our return (we didn’t want to carry extra things). We were already planning what to do for our couple of last days before returning home (our desires were shattered by the fights between the red shirt and the government but more on that later).
In summary, if a summary is possible, our stay in Bangkok was great. It was an awesome introduction to Southeast Asia. I don’t know how to describe my experience without jumping in excitement. It was love at first sight (Thailand and us). I think all the photos I have published testify about my feeling of being on a fairytale land. Definitely, a place I want to return and return many times.
Chiang Mai, here we go!!!
PS. You know what happened when we arrived at the hotel on day 3? We received a note on how it is dangerous to listen to people who tell you a place is closed and offer to take you to another place. What? We kind of received the note a little too late. If you have been reading my post, you already know that we were tricked by one of these deceivers. If you want to know what happened to us the day we visited the Gran Palace, click here. We laughed and laughed after we received the note.
PSS. Let’s say bye to Bangkok with two more pictures of Wat Arun.
Hope you have enjoyed my Bangkok posts. Leave a note with your favorite Bangkok spots.
