Thailand and Cambodia

Bangkok

THAILAND | Thursday, 15 December 2011 | Views [345] | Comments [1]

Second time typing is a charm.  Today was a great day in Bangkok.  Tried every mode of transportation (taxi, long boat, tuk tuk, water taxi, sky train and walking).  My favorite was the long boat.  We visited the grand palace, Wat Pho, the highest temple (climed 365 stairs to the top), Erewan temple.   The traditions, beliefs, and religion are very interesting to learn.  Also tried traditional Thai lunch which I did not think was that spicy.  I was surprised by the flooding of the canals that is still happening and how it has affected people here, that is sad.  The people here are very nice and it has been a great first day.  I hope to post some pics tomorrow but having some trouble with this sight.  Off to the lounge to have a cocktail and then some sushi.  Until later goodbye
