DAILY SIGHT SEEING TOUR AROUND BANGKOK

By Eric - 11:36 PM

November 3, 2010: The third day of the month, halloween was over. I've been idle for a couple of days now after the expiration of my contract in the school. Refused to renew since I have big plans that somehow would fall rightly into place. However, I feel so bored staying at my friend's place all day watching TV and sleeping.
Well, as a traveller - walking around and discovering Bangkok's pride is one of my fave leisures.
Of course, I couldn't get out leaving my camera behind without taking souvenirs for blogging and for timely mementos.
Visiting to different temples around Bangkok has been a favorite destination. It always marvel me seeing temples and their gods, with its unique structure that I couldn't find in the Philippines. Going inside the temple is also a good relaxation for a while from the hustle bustle of the city. Thai people called the temple "wat". They are grouped into two main parts - temples that carry religious functions and those which are used only for monks living quarter.
Thailand's temples has blended into exotic and spiritual because they are places for meditation. The mystical imagery attracts to tourists that leaves questions to the foreign visitors.
