We visited two of the large temple areas - Wat Pho, where we saw the huge reclining Buddha and hundreds of other Buddhas and Wat Arun (the temple of the dawn) with very ornate ceramic structures. We've also been to the Grand Palace which houses the emerald Buddha, as well as some exceedingly ornate buildings plus manicured grounds and white suited guards......the prince visited on Friday.
We visited The Jim Thompson House & Museum (designer who disappeared in 1967) which had lots of lovely pools with fish and flowers. Last night we went to the Moon Bar - an open air bar on the 61st floor - wonderful views and pleasant occasional breeze.
We are flying south today for a week relaxing at Kho Lak before returning home next Sunday.
