A highlight of any trip from Bangkok to Nakhon Pathom is surely the giant dragon that climbs up a tall tower building at Wat Samphran. I took a friend there at the weekend as well as to five other places of interest. We visited two riverside markets for food stops, an air orchid garden center, a temple where they specialize in traditional tattoos, and a transportation museum. None of these places had an entrance fee. The following photos were tweeted live during the trip.
Thana Market in Nakhon Chaisi district dates back 140 years. The present wooden buildings are 90 years old. Good place to stop for food pic.twitter.com/aO8LkvorAM— Richard Barrow in Thailand (@RichardBarrow) February 19, 2017
If you visit Wat Samphran in Nakhon Pathom on a Sunday, you can climb up inside the 300 meter long dragon up to the top. Some great views pic.twitter.com/8eNCpOZrK2— Richard Barrow in Thailand (@RichardBarrow) February 19, 2017
