Moving on from last weeks ‘A’ is for ‘Austria’ post, I skip a few years and step into Bangkok – the single day I had there before I fell ill and wound up in hospital in Koh Samui. However, this day was a great day of seeing temples and waterways of the diverse city of Bangkok.

While there was a wide variety of temples and statues in Bangkok, there was another side to the city – the water. Many houses and schools live on the water in Bangkok, life carries on as usual, but instead of a car, they have boats.

Thailand is an incredible country and Bangkok was a great start to my OE (overseas experience) just over four years ago. Hopefully I’ll return to Thailand one day feeling a lot better and get to investigate more of the islands and incredible spots that the country offers.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed these photographs. If you would like to see more please visit my photography gallery of Thailand here »
