After my first (last) visit to Thailand 2011/2012, it was good to be back in Bangkok, a city sprinkled with tuk-tuks and temples. This time around I experienced a cruise on the river and through canals with a traditional Thai boat, running from the main river, Chao Phraya River, into smaller branches through a local neighbourhood on water. I also visited Wat Pho Temple (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), one of the largest temple complexes in the city, famous for its giant reclining Buddha that measures 46 metres long and is covered in gold leaf.
