I had a lovely morning to myself and saw the sunrise over the skyline.
We all headed down to breakfast and then kids swam before our ride to The Grand Palace.
We made our way in and it was beautiful.
This is a required pose for this structure, just so you know. Everyone did it so of course we had to as well. 😂
The Grand Palace was exquisite. Of course the kids were wondering when the fun would start….aka “are there any rides or what?!” Okay, so they didn’t actually say that, but that is my interpretation of how they felt.
We left the Grand Palace and were whisked off into the streets of Bangkok in a tuk tuk. This may or may not be my favorite part from the day. 😉
We rolled out of this delicious restaurant back to our hotel to rest before eating more food a couple of hours later followed by a show called the Siam Niramit. It is a performance about the history of Thailand. It was really awesome. The set was incredible with water on stage for rivers and rainstorms, live elephants, goats and chickens.
Everyone was worn out after the show so we headed back and crashed. Jet lag is easing up but still pretty rough.
Today we head to Nakhon Sawan to visit Pon’s family. On the way, we will stop in Ayutthia. It was the ancient capital of Siam and an important trading port. We will visit archeological ruins and possibly play with elephants.
Bangkok has been awesome, so much to see and do here. I’m looking forward to getting out of the city and going deeper into the country.
