i finally got around to sorting through photos of our time in bangkok! we were only there for two nights.  we flew in from chiang mai in the morning and spent the day taking a boat ride down the chao phraya river, visiting the grand palace, wat phra kaeo (temple of the emerald buddha), wat pho (temple of the reclining buddha), wat arun (temple of dawn), and getting to know the skytrain (the most efficient, well-air conditioned transportation system, ever).


we tried to get fresh coconut every where we went.


seeing the reclining buddha was amazing but beware that it gets extremely crowded!


the emperor’s palace.  the palace was beautiful but keep in mind it is really strict inside and also at the entrance gate as well (understandably).  i was yelled at since i was wearing tights, which apparently are not allowed so i had to buy a cover.  then i got yelled at inside the wat phra kaeo for exiting the wrong door!  it was definitely not my day…but it was still beautiful!


the view from wat arun!  this was definitely our favorite temple!
