Bangkok – Wat Arun

Finally got to visit the two famous temples in Bangkok – Wat Arun and Wat Pho! Here’s a press on the former which reminds me of Angkor Wat. Guess the history of Thailand and Cambodia are somewhat intertwined.

Followed the suggested walk by The Insight Guides – Bangkok Step By Step that I borrowed  from the library, and found it really easy to explore the temples by boat on Chao Phraya River…Ferry, Bangkok

Lovely weather 🙂 Good for ascending the main prang which was steep! Check out a video I took then to remember the moment at http://cin-long-vacation.blogspot.sg/2013/10/bkk.html! 😛Wat Arun, Bangkok
