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…
Approaching Wat Arun via ferry from Tha Thien Pier.
Prang (Spire) of Wat Arun.
One of the small prang.
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! 😛
Another view from the top.
More intricate details.
Water taxis on the Chao Phraya River.
Another selfie after the climb 😛
