You’ll find a god in every golden cloister.
Grand Palace, Floating Market, and Reclining Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand.
After a day out with the eaters, I switched hostels from Siam Square to one closer to Khoa San Road, the backpacker mecca of BKK.
Of course, I was so exhausted that I immediately passed out when I got there…
The next morning though I met a Canadian named Jack who had plans to go to the Grand Palace and invited me along and we spend the morning viewing the shiny structures.
After the palace we went to a temple, dodging tuktuk drivers who tried to convince us that it was closed, to see the gigantic reclining buddha.
The next morning we woke up bright and early to go to the floating market. I was a little disappointed in the experience. It was nice to take a little boat through the canals to see the shops built alongside them, but it was too touristy. Everything was just the same old crap you can buy at any market anywhere in Thailand. I would have much preferred a trip out when there were fruits and vegetables and locals.
