An Unexpected Date in Bangkok

the original plan by Thai friend Tech was to visit Phya Thai Palace Museum of the well respected King Rama 6th & had coffee at its stylish cafeteria followed by dinner at Siam Paragon or Central World but more affairs happened!

 Educational Tour with Tech as Interpreter

 Extremely Artistic
 King's Chamber

It lives in the Palace

after the Palace Tour, casually mentioned to Tech i yet to visit Temple of Dawn & The Marble Temple although already visited many other major Temples. immediately the lovely lady said let's go to The Marble Temple! Wow she fulfilled my wish! we grabbed a cab again.

 White Marble were used extensively 

 B$20 entrance fee. Proper Dress Code

 Lovely Tech donated

sudden downpour. all roads jammed. no sign of cab. Tech advised to catch a Bus & BTS! virgin time for me to board a Bus & BTS! we're lucky the Air-Con bus came. very packed. reminded me of old days S'pore, paid cash to the Conductor & Ticket was given. still have old SG bus tickets.

alighted near BTS Siam. Q to get change to get ticket. without Tech i were be lost. 1st time experience. arrived at Central World. headed to the no Q Japanese Restaurant.
