BANGKOK…Wat Phra Kaeo

Bangkok is a capital of Thailand.  It has the other name “Krung Thep Maha Nakhon”. It means “City of Angel” Bangkok is located in a central plain in the area of Chao Phraya Delta. It is a center of administration and business. There are 10 millions population in Bangkok. The most of them are temporary  population of Bangkok. They move to the city for working. Bangkok is a modern capital while some parts of it still be old and reserved. Rattanakosin Island is a site of the old town where worthwhile for walking around. I started my trip at Wat Phra Kaeo or the other name The Temple of the Emerald Buddha. It is in the same area of The Grand Palace.



Tuk Tuk is a famous vehicle in Bangkok. Once it was a vehicle of James Bond Visa Commercial. I started walking at The City Pillar Shrine. I walked on a footpath of the Na Phra Lan Road.

Besides these beautiful buildings, there are many paintings on the wall around the corridor of the Wat Phra Kaeo. The paintings were painted the Epics of Ramayana.

I spent times in the area of the Wat Phra Kaeo each times more than 2 or 3 hours but I could just see some part of it. I have visited there many times and I found that it was crowded with the tourists. The most of tourists were Chinese. Greeting for Tourism!!!
