The City Inn is in a good location but we got off to a rough start with the hotel saying I had broke the key and I owed them $10 before I could get a new one.... They are electronic key cards and I hadn't even set foot in my room with the bell man there assiting me before the card broke in half from extreme over use. Just not a good wat to start by having to argue that I was not the cause of the problem. Good breakfast buffet; quiet rooms.

... in front of the temple / museum. a couple of standard fairground games lined one whole strip with gun and dart throwing being used to shoot targets or burst balloons. The 'Bun That Luang' festival for the November full moon, we catch the end of the week long festivities which are preceded by a three day religious ceremony. Unbelievably after walking all that way the other three weren't interested in actually going in or staying around to enjoy the festivities, so we ...
... through the centre passing into the 'Earth' section and eventually up to 'Heaven' where we exited through a small opening which on first glimpse I thought was just a window. Each level contained statues and each new level was reached by very narrow stone steps. I was quite proud of myself for clambering up them.
After a not so elegant exit through the mouth we had a view of the entire Buddha Park which was quite a sight to see them ...
... off! Unfortunately and like in every other Temples visited to date, pictures weren’t allowed inside. A guard stood inside ensuring that the rules were followed!
It was 2:00pm when we left this Buddhist Temple and slowly made our way back to the hotel. We now had only a few hours left in this country! We had to be ready on time or else!
