We were unstoppable, and one more long weekend. Bangkok it was then, to explore a little bit cityscape. It was humid, hot, polluted but colourful, bright & fun.
Pink taxis were quite a sight 😀
Bridges and wide streets and tall buildings, kissing the sky
Our hotel was pretty much in the heart of the city
The day we reached, we cruised the Chao Phraya River and what a sight it was!!
We headed to visit the Grand Palace…
Beautiful art and a gorgeous palace
Interesting paintings that was telling tales of history gone by
Quite a beauty, if you have an eye for art and history
We had a local friend there, who helped us try out some local cuisine. It was yummy. That was some deep fried crisp bread with chicken curry
Some chicken curry with rice. It had a strong peanut base and yummy!!
A little bit fun in the night – Sky bar, Bangkok
And you get a sparkling night view of the entire city, bright and beautiful
The following day was a trip down to the famous chatuchak weekend market – an array of tiny make-shift shops of every possible stuff – clothes, shoes, home decor, art & craft, etc etc. We did buy small stuff, like spices, few souvenirs, but overall enjoyed the vibrance and tidbit of small eats like this coconut ice-cream.
It was incomplete without visiting the Golden Buddha…and all I can say is that it was just so calming.
So, Bangkok was a short, fun trip worth covered. Dalai Lama, quoted “Once a year, go someplace You’ve never been before” I add, it doesn’t matter if you get a chance to go twice or more than once a year, but go….!! 😀
