We’re still in Thailand. B is for Bangkok – today’s journey on 2021’s Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
Bangkok is a riot!
Do people still say that? Anyway, that’s the word I associate with this city. It’s huge with beautiful skyscrapers, each one vying with the next for the most gorgeous light displays.
It’s noisy, busy, with night markets trading until late, and traffic 24/7. It was fascinating watching the taxis navigate this intersection in front of the train station.
Food at the night market – yummy.
Wat Traimit and the Golden Buddha
In the middle of the busyness, we found refuge from the soft rain in Wat Traimit, a temple in which the 5.5 tones Golden Buddha sits, serenely looking down upon barefooted worshippers.
Look, a love club!
And look what we found on the ground floor of our hotel… I don’t think ‘love’ is what happens there (maybe in a manner of speaking) and no, we didn’t go in.
Wat Pho and the Reclining Buddha
Wat Pho is the slightly more famous temple, at least according to the guidebooks. The temple complex is larger and is home to the Reclining Buddha, all of 46 metres long.
Monks at prayer.
We rounded the day off with a canal ride; it was so sad to see the levels of pollution on the water.
We spent 2 nights in Bangkok, not nearly enough to see it all. Something to look forward to …
Yesterday’s post was also a Thailand one – A is for Ayutthaya.
