Thailand - Bangkok Part 3

On the 3rd day, we decided to follow the tour and visit all the different buddha temples around Bangkok. The tour last for half day and the fee is 500 baht per person.

The first temple we went to visit is the Traimit Royal Temple to see the Golden Buddha. Actually, if you don't plan to follow the tour and go instead by yourself, the entrance fee is actually 20 baht only.

Next, we went to another Temple to see the Reclining Buddha, the largest laying Buddha in the world. (Well, in my opinion. It's so huge) And the place is very big and take time to explore. However, most the things to see there is more buddha statues and some acunpunture position pose.

Super painful Thai massage in my opinion.


Lastly, we went to see the marble buddha. Look at the sky in the photo. When we finally finish touring this marble temple, the raining cats and dogs.

More Buddha


AND more buddha statues. (The tour guide said the buddha statues came from different part of the world, got Japanese buddha, Indian buddha, etc etc)

After touring all three temples, we were escorted to a Jewellery store that achieved ISO 9002. (And they are so proud of this, although I don't understand what's so great about it) Anyway, I did bought a white gold pendant at 1500 baht. ;)



It comes with a certificate too.

Finally after Jewellery store, the driver was kind enough to drop us at Paragon shopping complex. Wow.. This shopping complex is filled with retailed shops. The more you buy, the cheaper the price will be. Eg, if a short pant is sell at 280 baht, if you buy 3, the price will be 230 each. Cheap right? However, the only disadvantage there is that there is no dressing room for you to try out the clothes.




Din buy much as i'm afraid the clothes won't fit. Guess what, all the pants that i bought are "L" size. I can't believe I'm size "L" at Bangkok. >.<
