Bangkok, Thailand is famous for its grand temples. Whether you're new to Buddhism and Thailand's elaborate architecture or not, I gotta say that a trip to its wats is among the list of must-do activities when you're traveling (and taking a break from shopping-- more on this later) in Bangkok. One of my favorite wats is the Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan (Whew! That was a mouthful!) located in Phra Nakhon district. To make things easier, tourists call it Wat Pho for short.
I have always been a fan of Thai food. Red curry, yellow curry, green curry, pad thai noodles, catfish salad-- name it, my construction worker appetite will eagerly devour it!
So when my friends and I visited Bangkok, I made sure that my stomach will get all the loving it needs. And as luck would have it, we stayed in a hotel along Phetchaburi Road, an alley that turns into a food market at night.
