Another day of touring where we rose early and headed to Chinatown to take in the food stalls, street food and flower market. Since we were there so early, we could easily move about and chat with the folks, and take lots of pictures.

We then ventured on tuktuk to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, which is enormous. Thailand has over 1300 temples, of which Bangkok has over 400, each with its own Buddha but this one is biggest in the country.
