Scavenger Hunt Sunday | The Bangkok Edition



We had a short getaway to Bangkok this weekend with my mother-in-law.  I have been to Bangkok many times, but this is the first time I’ve visited with kids in tow.  It was SCORCHING hot… absolutely scorching.  Out of the planned activities, we only made it to Wat Pho (The Temple of the Reclining Buddha).  We never made it to the Canal Tour nor the Floating Market –which we were planning to go to after our Wat Pho visit, but the kids were miserable in the heat, so we just headed back to the hotel that day and chilled.

1.  Sidewalk – A hawker selling slices of mangoes and other things right by the street.

2.  Inspiring – I overheard a tour guide tell his group that each of these buddhas has gold leaves placed on them piece by piece every few years as part of their upkeep.

Wat-Pho---Buddhas-in-a-row


3.  Time – Ruins at Wat Mahathat in Ayutthaya (dating back to the 1300s)

Buddha-at-Wat-Maha-That


4.  Close Up – One of the lilies outside the temples.

Water-lily---Wat-Pho


5.  With Mirror – That bright flash of light is the reflection off a side mirror on one of the motorcycles parked on the street.
