We arrived at Bangkok City proper around 15:00 we are supposed to go to a museum but it closes at 16:00 so we just headed towards the Apartment we rented using AirBnB. The place was really nice. After a long day of walking we just decided to sleep the night and start touring the next morning.

We took the train and headed to the Jim Thompson Museum, it’s a nice place to visit to get to know more about the culture of the Thai people. Jim loved thailand and you can see it clearly on his house. There are lots of great things to see inside the house. You can see his collection of artifacts and artworks. You can also see what it’s like inside a traditional Thai house.

The next place we visited is the The Grand Palace. It was a very massive complex of very detailed and beautiful buildings and structures. It was really a great place to visit. I took as much picture as I can. I specially like the very long mural about a certain Hindu tale.

After that, we went to a Mall to wait for our cruise ship. We also got to walk along the streets around the area. Later at night we boarded a cruise ship along the river. It was my first time to board a cruise ship so I am excited. The food my was nice with music and partying. Then after the cruise ship we rode a taxi to the backpacking capital of Bangkok. I just like to walk around the area, it was never my plan to shop so I just enjoyed sight seeing. We went home after.

The next day we had a Thai massage, ate and flew back to the Philippines. It was a great trip in South East Asia. Next time, I would like to go to Japan, or Korea or New Zealand.

Caricatures and Cambodia Trip Part 2

From Phnom Penh we travelled again with a better sleeper bus to Siem Reap. The travel was about 6 hours long which we didn’t really felt since we slept the whole trip.

When we arrived at the bus terminal, we immediately rode a tuktuk to Angkor Wat one of the wonders of the ancient world. That place is so awesome! I never thought that it was so massive! I really enjoyed exploring the place and took as much pictures as I can. The place was so massive that by the time you’re done you will really feel tired. As an artist I really appreciate the artistry and the history of Angkor Wat. I wont discuss about the place here. There are lots of in-dept readings you can check out online.

Next stop is the Angkor Thom. It was even bigger than Angkor Wat! So much bigger. Angkor Wat is already jaw dropping but Angkor Thom is unbelievable! It was so huge! Angkor Wat may have wider land area but Angkor Thom is very tall! we climbed and marveled at the place took some pictures and enjoyed the scenery.

The last stop is Ta Phrom. It was the infamous spot where Tomb Raider was filmed. If you remember the scene where Lara Croft entered the Angkor with the roots all around.

We headed to our hotel by noon time. We rested and washed and in the afternoon we walked the city to check out the market and the food places. It’s easy to walk around the Siem Reap you can also take a ride if you want. The next morning we headed to Bangkok. More on that on the next post.
