Bangkok Again. 3rd Time Is The Sweetest

I went to Bangkok again and I don't know why. Well it was actually my stop over on my to Siem Reap to see the Angkor Empire so I had to stay here for a couple of days. On my first trip to Bangkok back in 2009, I visited almost all of the temples so when I came back, I visited it again. The only change that has happened is that there are more and more tourists now compared 4 years ago. And most of them are the ever growing breed of the yellow people. But after this trip, I am pretty sure I will keep coming back.

Mr. Jones is a great bakery in Siam Center that sells a variety of delicious cake. Must try.

Wat Po. That enormous reclining Buddha has always been a favourite

Wat Arun, the temple that I missed on my first visit sits across a river. It's a towering vertigo-inducing temple that really scared me when climbing up.

I visited Bangkok for the third time last November 2013 as a stop over for my trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia.
