Travel Log - Bangkok Trip Day 1 ( Wat Arun & Romantic Chocolate Ville )

Let's finish my first day in Bangkok. After visit Wat Pho and Grand Palace, the next destination will be Wat Arun and Chocolate Ville.

Wat Arun, known as one of the landmark in the west of Chao Phraya River. The main attractive of Wat Arun is its central "prang" which like a pagoda that having a 80 meters tall.  You can climb up the prang to enjoy the beautiful Bangkok skyline but please be careful because the steps are very narrow and steep. I do appreciate the architecture of the prang which decorated with colouful porcelain and seashells piece by piece!  

 50 Baht per person! No shorts is allow there.
You are advice to wear long pants especially if you plan to visit all the Bangkok temples!

View from top, the steps are really narrow and steep.
 Going down is much more dangerous and difficult ! > <!!

 Writing down your wished here!

Nothing Much! A dumb face which torture by the hot sun ! 
My stomach start drooling! Lunch is needed now!

Lunch time at 2.00pm Malaysia time, my Bangkok driver bring us to a local place for lunch. An excited incident happened which all the waiter in the restaurant unable to speak chinese or english and their menu are all in Thai language. We unable to communicated with them thus we just can order by pointing on the images which printed in the menu. 

But luckily and thanks to Google translator! We use the translator to communicate with them and finally can sit back and relax the lunch. We spend around 1100 Baht for 6 dishes and 2 Coke.

Kheng Som Fish
Deep fried fish with the Kheng Som soup and asam topping, taste spicy and sour!
 Thumbs up for this! Yummy Yummy!

Fried Egg 
 Normal Fried Egg for the baby girl in our team. 
We spend half an hour for searching data network and to translate Fried Egg into Thai language.

 Tom Yum Goong Seafood Hot Pot
Fresh big head prawn! I love Thai Tom yum which taste a bit spicy but 
mainly lemongrass sour taste rather than Penang tom yam which just taste spicy.

Crispy Duck, Hmmm...I prefer dirty duck in Bali...Hehe! 

Overall, all of the dishes are taste super holiao/ delicious and the price are reasonable too! If you are interested to have your lunch over there too, you can show your driver the photo below for detail.
