The Four-Faced Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand, is known for its efficacy. For this reason, the Buddha is widely admired and highly sought after by the stars and celebrities of Hong Kong and Taiwan. Because it is located near large shopping malls like the Central World, it has also become a famous tourist attraction in Bangkok. In Thailand and Southeast Asia, the Four-Faced Buddha is considered a benevolent god. The Four-faced Buddha in Bangkok is in the Erawan Shrine amd the statue of the god is about 4 meters high. There are four faces altogether, which represent the four virtues of compassion, empathy, joy and charity. Those who pray for spiritual ascension must work hard to cultivate these four virtues.
Chao Phraya
4.4/5
2,697 Reviews
River
The Chao Phraya River is known as the “Mother River” in Thailand and is also called the “Venice of the East”. Spanning a total of 1,352 kilometers, the Chao Phraya River runs through the southeastern part of Thailand and flows through the Bangkok city. It plays an important role in urban transport and the lives of the shore residents. The water transport on the Chao Phraya River is very convenient. The Chao Phraya Express Boat is one of the main domestic transport vehicles in the daily lives of Bangkok citizens. It is also a frequent means of transport for tourists. Sitting on a boat and watching the scenery on both sides of the river is pleasant, while taking a night tour of the Chao Phraya River is both romantic and comfortable. These two are definitely worth experiencing.

For most people, New Years evokes memories of large celebrations. Perhaps it’s watching the ball drop in New York’s Times Square, perhaps it’s the fireworks from Sydney Harbour Bridge. In Thailand and other places throughout Southeast Asia, New Years is an excuse to have a massive water fight. Thailand’s traditional New Years festival, known as Songkran, is observed every year from April 13-15. To understand Songkran is to gain an appreciation of Thailand and Thai culture. In this travelogue, we explore the traditions around Songkran and delve into some recommendations for great places to participate in the festivities. Make sure you’ve got a change of clothes, because we’re going to get wet.

Today my last lunch in Bangkok, eat French cuisine, Michelin level cooking flotilla in the center of VIE Hotel in a five-star hotel, but more critical is the price, price, price, essential things must be said three times. So a set of set down, including appetizer soup, appetizer, steak, dessert, coffee, need a total of just 590 baht, yes, that is less than 120 HKD. I can not imagine if this was how much to sell a five-star hotel in the center of major cities in China. So, and you now know why everyone loves to Thailand, right?

On the last day in Bangkok, and finally, I got up early to pull weeds from Bangkok. This authoritative magazine BK Magazine sponsored polls to get most young people favorite restaurants (do main brunch restaurant) The restaurant style is minimalist woodwind, feels very comfortable, coupled with the mall's unique plants waterfall! Giving a feeling of warm spring breezes. Eggs Benedict point ate the best food classes, Nidi Dan, with smoked salmon and crispy baked under a moderate bread! Perfect match!! A very refreshing salad with vegetables and a bit broken Almond, perfect! [This year] Chocolate Souffle goods to eat the most delicious soufflé!! Moderate chocolate taste does not feel too sweet, bitter, average humidity just right, roast dessert has been very signs, pressing only order will not step on a mine. Roast Iced Tea signs lychee iced tea, sweet and always, with dessert, solution tired thirst artifact. Lychee iced tea accompanied by sweet and sour taste very refreshing. The excellent store reputation in Thailand, line up, then okay, but the point of the meal people Super Multi!! Fellow citizens have not been captured [laughing] eaters mainly to locals and foreigners!!

I drink coffee in Bangkok to explore the deep lane into a specialty store FABB coffee academy. Elegant, comfortable, and tidy, exquisite detail to make you an unexpected, unique flavor of Italian cuisine with Thai spices. This combine to make you taste buds get a different surprise experience. Love the nutty chocolate durian Bodi pizza, every mouthful of food for thought, could not resist eating a few useful features here. Another cup of coffee durian tastes delicious. I love durian you must come at the tasting, listening to music, chatting, enjoy the afternoon pleasant time there are coffee training courses, like little friends can come to this class on, learn garlands and the like, very interesting!
