In the late afternoon, we crossed the river to visit Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn. It is a stunning temple and uses a lot of colourful designs. It was also used pieces of broken pottery to create mosaics on the temple walls which was very unique!

Next, Barb and I took a tuk tuk to Chinatown. We instantly, tried some grilled octopus on a stick being sold by a food cart on the side of the road. Yum! We meandered in and out of gold shops, Chinese temples, and a market that extended for what seemed like forever.  It’s exciting, bustling, and full of life.

My mom and I later stumbled upon the Lebua Hotel which is famous for its Sky Bar. 64 floors up and you can see the view of the entire city. It’s absolutely beautiful and not a sight to be missed (especially at sunset).
