We stayed in a different part of the city on this trip, on the waterfront, and it felt like we were in a completely different city! We had an awesome view (click here for more photos) from our hotel room. We had a corner room on the 32nd floor. Even the shower was glass where you could look out to the view while showering.
Reminds me of the ice cream truck who used to come down my street - but with more variety.
One evening we went to the Asiatique Center for dinner and a walk around their market. It is a decent market, given it is in such a touristy area.
We went to the puppet theater with the work group... fun, but those puppets are a bit scary!
A visit to the local temple...
I never get tired of visiting temples as each one holds a new sight to discover.
Look closely; a man is dressing the giant Buddha.
Isn't this interesting? I have never seen anything like it in a temple. Is it a shrine for a child that passed?
A slightly different shrine.
Have you heard about all the protests in Bangkok? Well, I stepped right into the middle of it by accident. This was day two of the marching and at that point they were still pretty peaceful - just VERY loud!
And my secret obsession....Hello Kitty! Love her and all her friends.
It was fun watching this talented street artist making balloon shapes. The hubby had him make me the Hello Kitty balloon. Awe......how sweet.
We always have such a fun time in Bangkok. This was our forth visit in 2013!
