THAILAND Part 5 // Bangkok

3/18/13
grand palace 1b

After our first couple of days in Southern Thailand, we made our way up north to Bangkok and visited some of the capitol's proudest landmarks- the Grand Palace and Wat Arun. Bangkok was a night and day difference compared to our lazy days on the sleepy beaches of Phuket. It's a really bustling and fast paced city so you really have to hit the ground running, especially because we didn't speak the language. I bought my outfit off the street because we got lost and didn't have time to grab a change of clothes (my dress was not long enough and needed sleeves). It was funny because after changing I felt like I fit right in- the guard at the Grand Palace even mistook me for local and directed me to the line for Thai citizens where you can enter for free.

The temples were definitely a sight to be seen. Full of color and ornate detail- like nothing I've ever seen in person. It was fascinating to read about the history of Thailand and get a chance to learn more about the culture.
