Bangkok Touring

Heading off early this morning we boarded the coach and visited Wat Pho where we saw the beautiful gold reclining buddha as well as the Kings Grand Palace. Many different  buddhas were seen at Wat Po…sitting, standing and reclining and beautifully covered in gold leaf. The pagodas were magnificent and although we didn’t count the 99  – each were very different.

In the heat of the day we caught Tuk Tuks to the Grand Palace and they raced each other to see who could get there first. I couldn’t help but wonder how many accidents they have with them in one day! What fun!

The Grand Palace was wall to wall people and in addition people were cueing to pay their tributes to the late king who is lying in state.  Beautiful ornate statues, buddhas and gold were seen wherever one looked. Magnificent.

The day concluded with a boat

trip on the canal…not one I would choose to swim in but nevertheless fascinating.
