Today we did not have any study commitments, the day was ours to explore Bangkok.
Lisa, Kristy and I set off the Grand Palace only to discover that it was closed for a few hours on Sundays for a ceremony. We made good use of our time until it was open again by shopping at Central World, a HUGE shopping centre.
After shopping we made our way back to the Grand Palace. This was an amazing tour. The temple was beautiful, the photo's do not do it justice. We were able to go inside one of the temples and we sat there for a few minutes taking it all in. Unfortunately when we went to visit the temple we had not learned anything about Buddhism, this visit would have been great if I'd known what I did by the end of the tour.
That evening we all met up for dinner at a seafood restaurant at Patpong Road. This was an interesting place with lots of market stalls and go-go bars packed in together.
The highlight of my evening was the tuk tuk ride back to hotel. The open air and Asian style of driving combination made it a fun ride.
