Wat Arun Temple Thailand March 23-24, 2009

I traveled Bangkok City alone by myself in a very hotty sunny weather with my 13kilos back pack and a cold bottled water for the last day trip without any meal.  Since it’s going to be my last day in Bangkok city, I decided to walk around and visited some familiar temples around the area.  Due to communication barrier even If I asked their police officer nor the restaurant of the manager couldn’t give me a correct and exact information about where to take a bus or public transport and how to get into the temples.  So,  I ended up walking and reading the city map of Bangkok and found out the place and reached there sweating a lot.  Since I was wearing short and read on the internet it will not be permitted to enter the temple, so while I was on the bus (came from Phuket Island), I put my pants on and all the people on the bus where staring at me hahahaha -(They don’t have public comfort room/toilet near outside the temples though!) — I don’t care if that will be the chance for me to change my clothes just to see the temples then be it!

Tip:  You can’t enter the temple in short sleeve shirt or short pants, so make sure you are in a proper attire.

From Phuket Island after the elephant trekking and wonderful beach, left Phuket town at 3:20pm, on a bus for 501baht/pax stopped at Mon Chit Bus Terminal, Bangkok City arrived at 6am (had an hour bus problem on the road), then I traveled Bangkok all by myself with just the Map of Bangkok City, and followed all the street directions to see the temples and tried the public boat at Chao Phraya River for 3baht/pax. I wanted to see temples like Wat Arun Temples (50baht entrance fee), Wat Po (50baht entrance fee) and Grand Palace (350baht entrance fee) – NOTE:  These are based on 2009 travel trip!!!
