We’ve been in Bangkok for four days now, and it’s amazing! Although the air is really bad and my eyes are constantly running…
I don’t want to write a wall of text, so I’ll share some pictures instead.
Our first tuk-tuk ride!
The first day we went to the big shopping centers at Siam Square. They are really big and we walked around a lot. Needed a break, and bought some Oreo crushed ice with jelly bubbles!
The second day we went to Pratunam market. We got there by the canal boat, that was a really fun and rough boat ride, as you can see from the waves is this picture.
This is Golden Mountain, a temple located right next to the canal boat pier. We went up there and watched the sunset.
The sun is about to set! We had a 360º view of the city from the top of Golden Mountain.
Our third day we went to the temples. First to the Grand Palace, but it was so crowded with tourists that we left almost right after we arrived. Decided to go to Wat Pho instead, the home of a 46 m long reclining Buddha statue (it was HUGE!). Took some pictures there, but you could probably just google it and see pictures much nicer than mine. I’ll share this picture of a kitten sleeping in some cables inside the temple though, because it’s cute.
Speaking of cats, this is Peanut. He lives at our hostel. And he doesn’t like to be picked up.
Today we went wakeboarding, and it was so much fun! You actually start out with a kneeboard, and I was so bad that I didn’t try the actual wakeboard. Sondre did though, but faceplanted after 10-20 meters every time! It was hard. And our arms are killing us right now.
Dressed up in my wakeboarding gear!
And last, but not least, some pictures of food:
My breakfast, fried rice with chicken.
Sondre’s pad thai, and me and Miri’s massaman curry. So good!
We went to Chinatown and ate dim sum!
Tomorrow we are flying to Krabi and staying at a hostel in Ao Nang. On Sunday we’re gonna do something crazy, so stay tuned for our next blog post!
