Maryam Rahimi Blogs!
I generally don't like splitting up blog posts into parts but Bangkok was such a loaded trip that splitting this post is the only way to go. Alright, lets take it from the top...
At first, I sorta hated it. Overcrowded, messy, everything available in excess. Traffic was hurroundes. Just walking down the street felt like I should have a face mask on, the pollution and heat was crawling on my skin.... but then I started seeing a more beautiful side to Bangkok. As I explored the city, like the Chao Phraya Express Boat, Wat Pho temples and the private tour of the floating market, I realized there are so many layers to this region, filled by history, epic tale stories and stunning landscapes and nature. Have a look for yourself...
Riding Chao Phraya Express Boat
In the old days, Bangkok was comprised of hundreds of small canals or “khlong” in Thai and local people mainly traveled by water. They relied heavily on the waterways as this mode of transportation is faster, more convenient and efficient than the land route. I decided to take Chao Phraya Express Boat, a transportation service in Thailand operating on the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok. It was quite a scene.
