Thailand – Bangkok; Ride down River Chao Phraya (8)

Hi!! Great to see that you are still following me. It’s been a long 7 posting journey. We are nearly at the end. Bear with me a little more. =)

Near the exit of the Wat Pho, the view of the temple.

Walking outside Wat Pho temple is the Tha Tien Pier. There is also a market at Tha Tien pier which you can see all sorts of dried food being sold.

From Tha Tien Pier, we took the ferry across to the next temple crossing Chao Phraya river. What temple is that you may ask?

Well… it’s the Wat Arun Ratchawararam Ratchawaramahawihan or famously known as Wat Arun Temple. It is located at Bangkok Yai district of Bangkok, Thailand, on the Thonburi west bank of the Chao Phraya River.

Wat Arun is among the best known of Thailand’s landmarks and the first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple with pearly iridescence.

The entrance…..

  1. Ah, the dried food section in the market. They always have a strong smell about them, something as strong as the fish section. It seems quite quiet around the market and the temples. Was that so? I was expecting it to be bustling with people.

      • You are lucky not to be caught up in waves of tourists doing your travel to Thailand. The last thing you want is to wait for others to move so you can move. And you can get better shots with your camera with less people around 🙂

        • Sorry for the late reply. Been busy.

          Haha.. you are right. It is always good to avoid the tourist wave else you will be ‘swept’ away with them. Do you know Hari Raya Puasa is just round the corner?
