Three Days in Bangkok

When a dear friend of mine knew that I was in Singapore he invited me to visit him at Bangkok, Thailand for a few days. Without a second thought I book a ticket to Bangkok, which means I trade my shopping money for a plane ticket to Bangkok hehehe. 


I had only three days in Bangkok (The City of Angels or "Krungthep" [กรุงเทพมหานคร] in Thai) so my time is just limited to explore this capital city of Thailand.
One of the most impressive attractions to grace the Chao Phraya River is the Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. This ancient temple can be found on the Thonburi side of the river and is believed to be the oldest temple in the whole of Bangkok. Originally known as Wat Makok or the Olive Temple, Wat Arun dates back to the 16th century. Situated in a pretty garden surrounded by stone prangs and guarded by two gigantic demons known as yaksha, the central prang measures a colossal 80 meters high. With an admission fee of 50 Baht.
The rich in history Chao Phraya River is the lifeblood of Bangkok indeed the River of Kings.
The Bangkok local taxi famously known as Tuk-tuk that takes you where you’ve asked, but beware of the scum (‘taken for a ride’ according to lonely planet) the driver has to offer.

  1. I think what you said was actually very logical. But, what about this?
    what if you wrote a catchier title? I ain't saying your content is not solid., however suppose you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean "Three Days in Bangkok" is kinda vanilla. You could look at Yahoo's home page and note how they write article titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab
    readers interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
