Bangkok Trip: Wat Na Phra Men and Wat Lokayasutharam in Ayutthaya


Finally, I made time to conclude my Bangkok Trip happened back in October last year. What an effort! It's been almost half a year away from now already. Time really does fly huh? I'm trying very hard to recall what we did within our four days in Bangkok. Pictures are scattered everywhere, in my iPhone, my sis and brother-in-law's cameras. So, here we go guys! A summary of our tours and activities after some serious digging.

Day 1:
- Arrived in Bangkok after spending 23 hours on the train from Butterworth.
- Checked-in Baiyoke Sky Hotel.
- Lunch at Koh-I-Noor Restaurant.
- Visited Chatuchak Weekend Market.
- Buffet dinner at the Bangkok Balcony Crystal Grill on the 82nd floor of Baiyoke Sky Hote.
- Visited Observation Deck on the 77th floor and The Bangkok's 360° Revolving Roof Deck on the 84th floor of Baiyoke Sky Hotel. 

Day 2:

- Visited Palm Sugar Making and Orchid Farm.
- Lunch at Chao Phraya Floating Market.

One of them was Wat Na Phra Men aka the "Monastery in Front of the Funeral Pyre" which sometimes also referred as Wat Na Phra Meru, located off the city island in the northern area of Ayutthaya in Tha Wasukri sub-district.
