And I thought Cranbrook got busy during Sam Steele Days.
And when it comes to cross-border spending, Bangkok was ranked fourth last year, behind only New York, London and Paris.
We arrived here in Bangkok yesterday afternoon, after taking a short one hour flight on Air Asia (one of the 17 different airlines we will be flying on this trip). A quick aside to mention that of all the airports we have been to so far, we have to say that the one in Siem Reap, Cambodia was the nicest. A real surprise, as it looks so small from the outside, but is very open and airy with great shops inside. Thanks for humouring me about the airport...back to the blog. Michelle once again found a little gem for us to rent on airbnb. We are staying in a small apartment on the 18th floor of a 36 floor building. There is a gym and pool, as well as a roof terrace.
On the grounds at Wat Pho were many other eye-popping buildings. The amount of detail in all of these buildings continues to amaze us. The colours are just SO vibrant. They must repaint every few years.
The Grand Palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782! Rather than being a single structure, the Palace is made up of numerous buildings, halls and pavilions, set around open yards, gardens and courtyards.
