Historical Sites in & near Bangkok
Apart from shopping and eating, it is needed to visit some historical sites in Bangkok. There are still some good places which are worthwhile to make a short trip.

Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn), located on the west side of Chao Praya River(it runs through Bangkok city), is one of Bangkok's most famous landmarks and just next to Wat Arun Pier.

Wat Arun is open from 0830 to 1730. Admission is 50 Baht for foreigner.

It is in late afteroon, there is still sunlight. It is beautifully decorated with tiny pieces of coloured glass and Chinese porcelain placed delicately into intricate patterns.

It is from another angle. To me, to have a look of the appearance is already enough.

'Wat Phu Khao Thong' is white in colour, this colour is not common for temple in Thailand. It takes about one hour by vehicle from Bangkok city centre.

This (The Buddha Head in Wat Mahathat) is a very important relic of Ayutthaya Historical Park.  This Park is declared a UNESCOWorld heritagesite in 1981. More information can be found in link of Ayutthaya Kingdom. It is too precious, to an extent that security personnel and iron railing are needed.

The head is entrapped in the roots of a Bodhi (Banyan) tree, but the body is gone.

From this angle, we have a better knowledge of how the head is entrapped.

This is a picture 'borrowed' from a magazine. This picture is taken after the disastrous water flood in Thailand.

Such pagoda is very common in Thailand and other South East Asian countries.
