TRAVELING WITH APPS - Bangkok

My Bangkok experience

After the Islands, I travelled to Bangkok for the last four days of my stay in Thailand. According to the apps, Bangkok (also known as the City of Angels) has plenty of everything from ancient temples and palaces, wonderful parks and scenery and night clubs and bars of every description. After going through the apps, one thing was certain, I'd be using them a lot to find my way around to get info about everything I wanted to see.

One site that appeared in all the Bangkok apps was the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaeo. The palace was built in 1782 by Thailand's King Rama and the Wat Phra Kaeo temple with its amazing Emerald Buddha statue is the holiest temple not only in Bangkok, but the entire country. One of the apps said that more photographs have been taken of these two sites than any other in the world apart from the Taj Mahal in India.

I also took a ride along the Chao Phraya River which is the heart and soul of this dynamic city. The ride passes through one of the city's floating markets, Damnoen Saduak, but it seemed a bit to commercialized and aimed at the tourists.

Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn) is a mind blowing site with a porcelain covered, 79 meter Pagoda with an elaborate floral pattern. Climbing the steep stairs to get a panoramic view of the city got me some great photographs – but left me winded.

Wat Pho close to the Grand Palace is an enormous complex of the oldest and largest temples in the city. The main temple, built in the 16th century, is home to the famous 46 meters long and 15 meters high, gilded statue of the reclining Buddha.

Bangkok National Museum was another great site with lots to see. But without a doubt, the highlight was the collection of Thai Royal Chariots.

But I was also in Bangkok to shop, and the apps took me to the immense Chatuchak Market, a 35 acre area covered with over 8000 stalls and street vendors selling almost everything. Just like in the Middle East, bargaining is part of the game, it's expected so don't disappoint them.

Obviously, this is just a glimpse into what Bangkok has to offer. It also has, unfortunately, a seamy side. For your own safety and morality – don't go there.
