The first morning in our hotel we opted to sleep in (having arrived from the airport very late the night before). The second morning we figured out how to take advantage of the free breakfast. After breakfast we went one floor above our own to the roof to check out the pet garden and to take pictures of the cool buildings we could see from our hotel room. I also added some picture of Thai money (baht, divide by 30 to get a US dollar amount) and some pictures of the apartment/hotel room.
Fun signs we’ve seen around Thailand:
1st, on an escalator
2nd, a “give up your seat for monks” sign, on trains and buses
3rd, on the door of a bathroom stall
Back at the Snoopy mall, inside this time, trying to capture a Snoopy #selfie in her new Snoopy #selfie tshirt she got for Christmas.
Exploring the mall, we found a store with an adorable whale for Buddy, Little Guy’s favorite How to Train Your Dragon dragon and a minion and some other fun statues for Squirt. We also found a Mexican restaurant and fed Squirt ice cubes (he is his Grandma L’s grandson) while we waited for our food.
We bought Princess Sparkley this little Santa hat hair clip to commemorate that it was Christmas Day and so we’d always remember that when we saw these pictures. Our first stop after the mall was The Golden Mount or Wat Saket.
And for the awkwardest picture of the trip (at least that we captured):
In a tuk tuk, waiting to leave The Golden Mount.
No photographs were allowed inside where the Emerald Buddha was, but this is outside, a very jewel encrusted building.
After taking the above picture of B and I, Buddy said, “It looks like we’re at Disneyland.”
After finishing up at The Grand Palace, we took a tuk tuk and went in search of Pad Thai. We ended up wondering around a mall, eating yummy mango smoothies, mango pudding, mango and sticky rice and mango ice cream at a place called Mango Tango and finally finding some Pad Thai for dinner.
