Although Bangkok is the city you'll most likely fly in and out of when you travel to Thailand, I highly suggest a 3 day cut off for how long you stay there. But before you head to the north to see Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and Pai, or head south to Krabi, Phuket, or any of the islands, it is imperative you explore Bangkok's historic temples. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀Wat Phra Kaew, or the Emerald Buddha Temple, is regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple in all of Thailand. According to legend, the Emerald Buddha would bring "prosperity and pre-eminence to each country in which it resides", and therefore the Emerald Buddha deified in the Wat Phra Kaew is deeply revered and venerated in Thailand as the protector of the country. 🙏 .

Day 4: 12/9/2018 Our last day in Bangkok. Diarrhoea continues.😭
-
To wrap up our trip, we went to the Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram (The Temple of Emerald Buddha) and The Grand Palace. Being the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand, this is just a must-go destination. The architecture is stunning, all the details...such a grand & luxurious temple...it’s so gold~😂
-
As for the Grand Palace, I just couldn’t resist comparing it with my favourite Buckingham Palace~ Hmm~ which looks better~ I would have to say.......they are as beautiful😂
-
Apart from the diarrhoea, the trip is fun~ Air Asia is quite comfy for a budget airline~ But may be next time, we should buy those seats with extra leg room~ now it’s just not enough space for our 42-inch long legs😂
-
Looking forward to our next trip already~ where should we go next?

Credevano a un altro diverso da Te
e non mi hanno fatto del male.”

Bangkok dikenal sebagai Venesia dari Timur, dan Sungai Chao Phraya yang sibuk berfungsi sebagai jalur alternatif ke kota dan ke seluruh negeri. Kanal kecil menghubungkan kota dan daerah sekitarnya, dan menaiki perahu panjang di sepanjang labirin air ini adalah pengalaman yang luar biasa ketika berada di Bangkok. Anda akan melihat anak-anak bermain, pria tua memancing, dan wanita melakukan cucian mingguan mereka semua di tepi Sungai Chao Phraya. Anda juga dapat berkunjung ke Grand Palace, Wat Arun dan kuil Reclining Buddha melalui Sungai Chao Phraya.

On our Thailand: The Golden Kingdom tour, @kmdhenderson was awestruck by the history and detail of the Wat Phra Kaew, aka the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, which is regarded as the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand. Inside of the temple you can find the Emerald Buddha, which is carved out of a single block of jade.

This is the #emeraldbuddha .
.
It is only 66cm/26in high and it's kept high and at distance from the public. Despite the low quality of this picture you can still get the atmosphere

Like most things #thai this statue too has an extraordinary story 🤩 According to legend, it was created in 42BC in #india and it traveled all around #sea 😎 .
.
Then in 1434 it was found up north, in #chiangrai where the famous 'little boars' - the soccer team of boys who spent 10 days inside a cave in June 2018, were from.

The statue is actually made of #jasper and it represents #lordbuddha dressed in gold and meditating in padmasasana or the #yoga lotus pose 🧘🏻‍♂️ .
.In 1468 the statue was moved to Wat Chedi Luang in 'nearby' #chiangmai

After being taken to #laos , finally in 1779 it came back to the Kingdom of Siam. Firstly, it was hosted in a shrine near #watarun in #bangkok and then, when King Rama I moved the capital over the river and he had the #grandpalace build.

#watphrakaew was consacrated in 1784 and the emerald Buddha has been in its ubosoth or ordination hall ever since then 🙆🏻‍♀️ .
.
. As #fashion is an important aspect of the Thai aesthetics, life style and culture, it is interesting to point out how this statue changes clothes three times a year, according to the season, by the King of #thailand or a member of the royal family on his behalf👑

Can there be anything more sacred than the Buddha in Thailand?
I don't think so.
