Up early this morning for some sightseeing around Bangkok.

On and I have seen a few movies, done some shopping, now it’s time for some culture and history with a visit to Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaeo.

Even though I have been to both temples numerous times in the past, it’s a kind of obligation or Buddhist pilgrimage each time I am in Bangkok to visit them if I have time. For most people traveling to Thailand, they may only see it once; for me I try to visit there at least once or twice a year.

We catch the No. 48 bus in front of Tesco/Lotus next to On Nut Station. On says that the bus will take us right to Wat Pho. Cool. Eight Baht each to get to Wat Pho. You can’t go wrong with an eight-Baht fare if you don’t mind bouncing around on a bus without any air conditioning, and besides, it’s been awhile since I’ve taken a bus in Bangkok. Sure we could have taken the BTS and transferred to the MRT, but we would have to take a taxi or tuk-tuk and end up paying more. We’ll save the taxi for when we go back to MBK after we’ve been to the temples.
