The Grand Palace & Grand Temple
The place is Grand (yeah, Holly, no shit, I could have told you that) and what strikes me is not just the amount of gold on the walls, but the details. Intricate, painstakingly elaborate and fine. And we're talking whole building here, not just a detailed door knob or window.
The ancient capital of Siam (Thailand), now in ruins.It's about 2 hours drive away from Bangkok.
We went on the King's River Cruise down Chao Praya River. There was a buffet lunch on board which I was really looking forward to but that turned out to be crap. Lack of variety, lack of hygiene, over priced drinks. After lunch we went on the upper deck to take in the view. Nice to have the sun shining on you while you enjoy the breeze and sights. But the whole cruise was like 2 hours long, and all you really need is like half an hour of it. I got terribly bored.
