The final leg of our holiday was a brief stopover in Bangkok. Didn't really plan it too well. I (we) should have either gone for a shorter time, which would have been overnight and stayed at the airport and enjoyed the hotel there or longer so we could see a bit more. Longer in Cambodia would have been better or a week in Burma as we'd originally planned but still...
The Misses and I are never quite sure about Bangkok. She doesn't particularly like it, I'm not sure. It certainly is a big noisy and dirty city, but it is also good fun and there is lots to see and I love the food. The biggest disappointment was we managed to avoid the weekend and so didn't go to Chat-a-chat (spelling???) market.
The Grand Palace in Bangkok is excellent and is certainly well named. Get there early! It is soooo busy.
It is an amazing combination of stupas and statues and to say that it is gaudy would be a tad of an understatement. It is well worth seeing though even if you do have to wear long trousers to get in. That is not too much fun in the Bangkok heat I can tell you!
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
