Walk through Ko Ratanakosin

A very interesting walk to see the major sights of Bangkok. We followed the Lonely Planet walking tour, taking the river taxi, and starting our walk at the Silpakorn University, past Wat Mahathat, through the Amulet market, to the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. It was a good thing we hadn’t seen pictures of the Grand Palace, because the visuals were absolutely spectacular! I suppose it flouted all rules of art & architecture, but it kept us agape for the entire duration.

Personally I think it would better suit a Bollywood movie set than a Buddhist temple, but entertaining all the same.

Name your lucky colour!

Guarantee your luck with an amulet :-)

An extravaganza!
