Tagging along for a temple tour

I met a Thai girl at the hostel and I ended up going with her to check out a pile of palaces and temples.

Bangkok coloured tiles
The stark, almost childish style of block colours is eye-catching and unique.

As it turns out I was lucky she was there as I ran in to issues at a security checkpoint – so her translation skills were very handy.

Just looking out over everything – there are so many foreign design elements, it’s fascinating.

Afterwards we had lunch. I ended up trying a lot of interesting new foods. Part of the advantage of hanging out with locals is they know all the interesting eating spots.

Noodles on a plate
Crunchy fried noodle things – something different!
