We are Siamese if you please - Bangkok, Thailand

We spent the morning visiting a few more temples. We went to Wat Arun and Wat Pho. Both temples were stunning. Wat Arun looked similar to the temples we visited in India. We climbed to the top of the old, porcelain decorated temple for an amazing view of Bangkok. Wat Pho is the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok. It is home to the famous reclining Buddha. It was truly a sight to behold.

We then headed to Chinatown for a quick visit. We weren't impressed so we headed back to our hotel where we decided to have a "spa day". The Saras spent some time in the hotel's rooftop infinity pool. Matt had two hours worth of massages and Sara had an hour long Thai massage.

After relaxing we headed out to dinner. We tried a place our guide book recommended and were sadly disappointed. Matt decided he was tired so he caught a cab back to the hotel (later we discovered he went out and got another hour long massage). The Saras headed out to the night market, which turned out to be another street food market. We were full from dinner but of course made room for some mango sticky rice. It was divine. We headed back to the hotel so we could catch a little sleep before having to wake up early the next morning for our flight to Phuket. We loved Bangkok and would come back to visit in a heartbeat!
