Have you heard about prego weird wants like craving food or something? Well, I don’t quite believe on that thing until… Ummm… Until it happened to me! 😀 Hahaha. So in January, when I was 5 months pregnant I didn’t know why but I wanted to go to Thailand so bad. I informed Adrian about this and he immediately said NO. There was a massive demonstration at that time and one of the parties threaten to have 1 month strikes or something.
Ok, for safety reason then we decide to postpone the my so-called-craving-trip 😛 Two months after, I heard that the political situation was getting better and my wish of going to Thai haunted me again. I contacted Priska (Oh, you know Priska, I wrote about our meet up last time) who’s staying there and she assured me that Thailand people always have a peaceful demonstration. So, I booked the flight, hotel and taddaaa…. Let the holiday begins! ^_^
Checking in around 3 pm at the hotel, I was all sweating. Geez, Bangkok is hotter than Jakarta. I felt like I was barbequed >.< As we weren’t familiar with the town, we decided to take a cab. A decision to regret as when we arrived in the hotel, it was just in front of a Bangkok Train Station (BTS). If we had taken the BTS, that surely would cut our budget! Hahaha.
Anyhow, me and Adrian started our leisure by visiting Wat Arun or famous by the nick name: Temple of Dawn. From our hotel to the temple we needed to take Tuk-tuk (a three-wheels local public transportation) to pier and take a water cab.
Full of tourists
While you are here, try on traditional clothes of Thailand. There are people renting it outside the temple. Don’t forget to bargain. ^_^ It was a tough bargain at first, the person who rent it asked for 200 bath/person/clothes but as he saw that I am pregnant, he immediately gave me discount! Hahaha. Lucky me! So, for two costumes of me and Adrian, we only paid 150 bath.
Glad that I was able to enjoy this wonderful temple although too bad I couldn’t find any tour guide. I’d love to know more about the history of the temple though.
Anyway, pernah ke temple mana aja nih Sobat, CE?
