Cycle Ride on Rattanakosin Island
At the weekend I was exploring the old city in Bangkok around the Grand Palace. Here are some of the pictures that I tweeted as I cycled around.
RT @RichardBarrow: The Standing Buddha at Wat Intharavihan is 32 meters high & 11 metres wide. It’s best to take a picture of the Standing Buddha at Wat Intharavihan in the morning when the sun is behind you.
RT @RichardBarrow: I see Starbung Coffee is still on Phra Athit Rd. I thought they received a cease & desist from Starbucks.
RT @RichardBarrow: There’s a nice riverside walkway parallel with Phra Athit Rd. You can also rent long-tail boats here for 800-1,200B
RT @RichardBarrow: In front of Phra Pinklao Pier you will find the Bangkok Tourist office with lots of useful brochures & maps.
RT @RichardBarrow: Rama V Museum is on Sanam Luang & open Wednesday-Sunday from 9:30am-4pm. The Rama V Museum is a great place to have a break from the hot sun. All exhibits are bilingual and entrance is free.
RT @RichardBarrow: The excellent Museum Siam #Bangkok is #FREE this weekend. Normal price is 300B. Well worth visiting. Museum Siam tells the story of the Siamese people through interactive displays. Everything is bilingual.
RT @RichardBarrow: Outdoor Gun Museum in front of the Ministry of Defence
RT @RichardBarrow: At the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall guided tours last 2 hours & go every 20 minutes. Open Tue-Sun 10am-7pm. Limited space on tours. Admission is 100B.
RT @RichardBarrow: The Golden Mount has a Chedi at the top of an artificial hill. It’s the highest point in the area. Climb to the top of the Golden Mount is #Free but you are asked to donate 10 Baht to enter the building. Great views.
