Basumont Fortress was built in the period of Rama I in Bangkok, Thailand, more than 200 years ago. After 200 years of wind and rain, the fortress was already in ruins. In order to beautify the city and attract tourists, Bangkok Municipal Government invested a lot of money in repairing and repainting the fortress. Pure white tone solemn and holy, so that the original military heavily covered with a layer of fairy tale color. Even the iron cannon was repainted, black and shiny. Against the blue sky and white clouds, it feels more like a prince's castle. The fortress is now a public attraction and no tickets are required. But you can only stand around and visit from a distance. Visitors are not allowed to enter the interior at will. Although nobody is on duty, don't try to enter. Once found, they will be punished. The sidewalks around the fortress are relatively narrow, and the best viewing and photographing locations are across the road. When taking photos, we must pay attention to the passing vehicles to avoid accidents. There are many restaurants, bars and cold drinks across the fortress, and they are very popular. Tired, hungry, thirsty, you might as well sit down for a while and enjoy it.
This fortress is on the way to the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The fortress was painted snow-white as if it were new. In the quiet park, there were not many tourists. A tributary of the Mekong River. There was no special introduction to the whole fortress. But because of the river, you can imagine the importance of the fortress.
Basumont fortress was built during the reign of King Rama I. It was mainly used to resist the invasion of foreign enemies. At that time, it played a very important role in military affairs. Now it still keeps some military traces of the sentry. The mottled wall looks very chronological.
Accidentally passing by the scenic spot is a public park, there are a group of Thai aunts in the gymnastics, young people in hip-hop dance, and some people play badminton. There are little couples lying on the grass. It's a beautiful riverside park. It's free of charge, but there's a guard fortress.
From Kaoshan Road to N13 Wharf, we pass through this small scenic spot. In a small park, in fact, many beautiful memories are not about punching in the scenic spots, but about the good times on these roads. Our destination that day was to go to the Grand Palace by boat. There were so many people who didn't have a good experience, but here we hurried by, a little regret. Next to the Mekong River, there is a small restaurant nearby for dinner and a walk in the small park. It's very good.
One of the last remaining watch towers along the old city wall, Phra Sumen Fort overlooks the river, resting in quiet dignity. Best enjoyed at sunset, when it is lit up by ground lights in the fading twilight, it's mystery is heightened by the fact that admission is not allowed. Stroll through the peaceful grounds that boast regal pavilions along the riverbank. There is a small canal that feeds into the park, where old riverboats bob among the waterlilies and a bizarrely-placed backpacker's bar is nestled on the bank like a forgotten cabin.
An impressive and underrated fort, located in a riverside park off Thanon Phra Arthit. The fort is a white construction in three levels. It represents Mount Meru, a spiritually significant mountain in Hindu and Buddhist mythology. It’s only a short walk from Khao San Road but is not often visited by tourists.
The Youth Tour is nearby, walking inadvertently see, very like the building, then do not know what to use, personal feeling is very beautiful.
