Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Like a little kid waiting to enter the Circus Big Top Tent, I could barely contain my excitement as I waited for Brian and Lindsey to exit Bangkok airport immigration. But as I stood there frantically floundering to resurrect just a few more shots out of my overly exhausted camera, there they were, standing beside me. Needless to say, I missed my …
We decide to checkout the mall scene in Bangkok targeting Paragon. Decide to try local transportation rather than take own car. Getting there is smooth. It is so reminiscent of Singapore! The underwater world is not very different from one in Sentosa either. Then we decide to go to nearby Pratanum Market and someone suggests getting there on foot. …

Reclining Budha represents the last stage of Budha. With reproductions available in all tourist places (at least in SEA region), it is probably the most popular depiction of Budha:we have one …
