Temple Run, Part 2

6 Dec

Mrs Nattaya (who helpfully told us her name sounds like Pattaya), our guide for the half day city tour was very chatty but we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We learnt that the name Bangkok holds the record for the longest name for a city and it’s listed in the Guinness Book World of Records! Go Google it up.

After ooh-ing and aah-ing at the golden Buddha statue in Wat Traimit, we moseyed along with traffic into Chinatown. Next stop, Wat Pho.

Wat Pho sits on 17 acres of land with lots to see. The Sleeping Buddha, at 46 meters long and 15 meters high is not the longest but the 3rd longest, can you believe it?! The sheer size of it is pretty jaw dropping. Along with 99 pagodas within the compound, I would say it was a very enriching outing.

Weather has been good again today. We head off to take in the various places of interest next.

The half day tour is done and we are all tired out from it. Heading back to the hotel, we are already planning what to eat before we continue with activities for the second half of the day.
