Been out exploring the city of Bangkok very a interesting place First day I spent just walking around the area where my hotel is the Silow area lots of street food some looking very good but have not tried any, some makes you wonder what is it ??? anything you are looking for can be found on the streets, lots massage parlors so had to see if the Thai massages were any good I like, very very good will check out at least one more before leaving here. he he Went to see the WAT PHAR KAEW (Grand Palace) built around 1780's wow what a place really hard to take pictures of it, it is so big lots of people there, the day is hot and muggy sure looks like it will start raining soon, then on to the WAT PO the temple of the reclining Buddha the oldest and largest wat in Bangkok, then across the river to WAT ARUN the temple of the Dawn went to the top quite a climb just made it back to the boat on the river before the rain started so back to hotel a bit of lunch and time to take in another great 2 hour massage. rained most of the afternoon so had to sit in a sidewalk bar and have a few cool ones before heading out for dinner and seeing the night life.
