Day 2

During this day, I will visit all the places which are difficult to access with the public transports.

Golden Mountain and Wat Saket:

In the early morning, I will go to climb the 318 steps of this Golden Mountain in order to admire the wonderful panoramic view of Bangkok.

Then I will visit the Buddhist temple Wat Sraket located just at the top of the Golden mountain. It costs only 20 Bahts to come in.

In order to get there, it is advised to stop at the MRT Hua Lamphong station and to take a Tuk-Tuk to the Golden Mountain.

Vimanmek Mansion:

From the Golden Mountain, I will then take a taxi to get to this place.

This is a royal house made of teck which is apparently worth to see. The visit lasts about 45 minutes. The entrance is free thanks to our ticket from the Grand Palace, but we need to pay a 20 Bahts fee to put our belongings in some lockers as nothing is allowed inside.

Also, as always, it is required to be dressed accordingly in order to get in the temple. No shorts and shoulders should be covered.

Jim Thompson’s House:

This is a place with a collection of statues and thai art. Jim Thompson was an american businessman who worked in the silk market and misteriously disappeared in Malaysia…

Khao San Street:

This is a very touristic place but it is worth to go as it is full of stalls with people selling all kind of goods. when the night is coming; all the stalls are closing, and the bars are opening to let the party started.

This place is perfect to meet other backpackers as they all come here to have some drinks. It is also good to take a hostel there as it is cheap and it is a good way to meet new people who are traveling like me.

Patpong:

Patpong is the place that we can compare to the Moulin Rouge in Paris.

There, I will find the Patpong Night Market where they sell everything.

Afterwards, I will head to the clubs and get drunk with the Chang (the national Thaï beer) which is cheap and has always a different degree of alcool.
