BANGKOK CITY - TEMPLE OF DAWN

By Eric - 4:47 AM

As I always love to visit Bangkok, going to its landmarks is a remarkable and a relief of sort seeing some of the historical structures of Thailand. While majority of the Pinoys working in Thailand loves to visit those artificial and miniature amusement parks around Bangkok or outside of the city,my taste is totally different.
Historical sites of the country really caught my fancy and it is one way of knowing the country more. The last pride of Bangkok that I visited was the Temple of Dawn..it's pretty amazing when I saw the tower across the river of Chao Praya river.
Foreigners from other country who came to visit Thailand for relaxing loves the Temple of Dawn..and so am I too. I didn't mind the heat as I went there eleven o'clock in the morning till three in the afternoon.
What I admire most of this country was, they respect and help the foreigners to give the exact direction when one lost the way.
It happened to me once, and a kind old man as he couldn't speak English

I met these young novice monks while I was on top of the tower..so I asked them to get some souvenirs with me.
