Bangkok Diaries: Day 2

“Bangkok Diaries”

Day – 2

In continuation to the ‘Bangkok Diaries Day 1‘ post, here’s the post on Day 2 from my Bangkok Diaries.

As with Day 1, Day 2 also started with a nice breakfast by the poolside at Cafe Mozu, Lebua.

Today, we had plans to visit some popular temples in Bangkok so I made sure to wear appropriate outfit as per the dress code (mentioned in my previous post).

First place we visited was The Temple of Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)

The sun was really bright that day, so just in-front of the temple I bought a much needed handmade umbrella which is just so pretty! (to be seen in my following pics).

Pro Tip: Make sure you bargain hard when buying stuff from street markets of Bangkok or anywhere for that matter.

China Town, Bangkok

Next we headed over to Wat Pho (The Temple of Reclining Buddha) and on route stopped at The China Town Market.

China Town Market

The China Town market of Bangkok, like any other China Town Market in the world, is filled with a lot of mystical objects and smells, some nice and some not so good for me as I am a vegetarian. One thing which you must buy from here is authentic Chinese Green Tea. I bought Ginseng green tea, my favourite 🙂

Green Tea’s @ China Town Market

If you are fond of experimenting with your taste buds and indulging in different varieties of meat, ranging from bats to chickens, China Market  just may be the place for you !

We finally reached Wat Pho – named after a monastery in India in which Lord Buddha is believed to have lived – at around noon.

Wat Pho is one of the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok and a major tourist attraction. The droves of crowd may seem a problem when you enter but the sheer beauty of the place will make you forget it all!

Beautiful isn’t it ? But the real beauty is what is inside the temple, the giant Statue of Lord Buddha laying at ease plated with Gold. It is so pretty that I just couldn’t resist clicking a few selfies with Lord Buddha here 🙂

Me right outside the Temple, ready for the next destination!

After Wat Pho, our next stop was The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew which are in the same complex so pictures below are a mix of both. Also, clicking photographs inside the temple is prohibited.

It took us around one and a half hour to explore the entire complex but I think it was the highlight of our trip. The place is just such a beauty !

Me with the Umbrella I was talking about earlier, And yes all that glitters in this case is Gold!DSC_0162

The sun was hot and I was really getting dehydrated so instead of buying a regular soft drink or water bottle I decided to indulge in a local drink and boy was it delish!

The last place to visit today was Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn). We took a boat ride across the Chao Phraya River to reach to the temple and it was super fun!

All the commutations for us were planned by the taxi agent we had booked (as mentioned in my previous Bangkok post)

Spotted our hotel too !! [Lebua Hotel]

Finally, boat ride over, we reached the temple, Wat Arun. Ok let me warn you about this one, there’s a lot of climbing stairs involved. Not that I have a trouble with stairs, it’s the sheer steepness of the Temple. I have a morbid fear of heights and I think I almost cried, especially while coming downstairs. It was tough for me to even look down from up there.

Wrapping up with Day 2 attractions, we now headed back to the hotel and straight to the restaurant Ocean 52 for High Tea. This was complementary during our stay at Lebua because of the package we had taken (written about in Day 1 post).

Evening spent drinking wine and munching on snacks, and chocolates! Can I just stay here forever !?!

After enjoying our wine/ beer we went back to our room and I took a nice bubble bath followed by a much needed nap.

Later that night we decided to hit the much talked about and popular ‘Sky Bar‘ [The highest bar in Asia] (p.s. Wasn’t carrying a camera so please bear with some phone clicks here! )

For drinks we started off with the much famous ‘Hangovertini’. It’s a special martini that was first made for the cast of Hangover II when the movie was shot at Lebua.

I am a total Martini person so this was especially good for me! But Shitiz needed a beer so we moved to the next bar of the Hotel.

The party then continued at Distil restaurant & bar.

While Shitiz had his much loved beer, I relished on a lovely cup of Irish coffee, a whiskey based cocktail.

Yum!!

We sat inside the restaurant for a while and then shifted to outdoor seating area from where the view was oh so pretty! The city lights below you, music flowing, a drink in hand – Romantic? Definitely YES !

I had an amazing time there, only wish to go back again sometime soon 🙂 As you can see from the above pic the thought of going back had indeed come in 😉

Next was time to hit the sack and get refreshed for what was in store for Day 3 (the next, and the last post, of the series).

Much Love,

P
