By the end of day two in Bangkok, Thailand, I had more than a boyfriend – I had a fiance! More on that later.
First is first: BREAKFAST. During our travels, I think breakfast has been one of my most favorite times of day (besides the times when we’re tremendously jetlagged). The whole day is ahead of us, we read up to decide how exactly to get to certain attractions (why be prepared travelers? that’s so boring.), drink in the view, and best of all: there’s coffee.
After navigating the over-crowded ferry system, we make our way to Wat Arun. Found on the west side of the Chao Praya River, it is an incredibly beautiful Buddhist temple, and an absolute must-see in Bangkok. Be sure to bring something to cover your shoulders and legs, as you will have to rent something if you don’t.
The climb to the top is a bit steep! Although I’ve been hang-gliding, sky-diving, and love tall roller coasters, but simply climbing steep steps is a bit of a scare for me. We made it all the way up and all the way down, though!
After walking around Wat Arun for a while, we hopped on a longtail boat to take a tour of the canals of Thonburi and the Floating Market.
