Bangkok

10 February 2007

This time, while coming back from Taipei, I had 9 hours of waiting time at Bangkok Suvarnabhoomi airport. Instead of wasting time at the transit hotel, I decided to visit some of the places in Bangkok. Getting a on arrival visa for Thailand was simple and it just took some 5 minutes to get a visa, clear immigration and customs.

The tour opeartor at the airport suggested the temple tour which could be covered with the available time. I was joined by another Bangalorean.

The victory monument at the center of the town.

The Wat Benchamabophit temple or Marble temple.

It has 40 Buddha statues in different styles.

Information:

If one has some 6 hours of waiting time at Bangkok airport, then this tour can be taken.

Charges:
On arrival visa charge : 1000 Baht
Airport tax : 700 Baht
Tour cost : 20 US$
