Today we have been cycling on the two opposite roads. We started the day with very remote path and finished in along the highway (using the bicycle lane). A part that, not anything special. We did not visit any particular places (that will be for tomorrow :-). This evening we were stopped by the river. In fact, tomorrow morning we will catch a ferry to cross the Chao Phraya River.
Today we haven’t ride much but visit some more places. We met many nice people today and enjoy the ride the Chao Phraya river during the second part of the day. Tonight we won’t sleep in a temple. We almost did it but finally we ended in a restaurant. No plan is the best :-)
Today we visited a market called the 100 Years Rim Nam Market. We did not plan to visit it, that’s someone at the temple where we slept last night who recommended us. We had to make a small detour only and enjoy some tiny roads. After that we have been cycle all the way without visiting any special place until the end of the day. The last visit was a memorial called Kai Bang Rachan that commemorates the battle against the Burmese (again).
We finished the day with a visit of Don Chedi Monument. This is where Naresuan statue stands. This king fought against the Burmese people, won the battle and became part of an in important part of Thai history. After that, we cycled towards the closest temple to cook our fancy dinner and spend the night.
After that Chinese temple, we moved to Wat Khae where I learnt about Khun Phean, a magician and the story of Buddha painted inside the temple. We also visit “Khum Khun Phaen” a traditional Thai house. So many informations!
The next visit of the day is this Chinese temple made by Thai people. Underneath that huge dragon there is a museum (about Dragons) but the entrance is something like 300 baht for Thai people and 500 for foreigners, something like this. That will be without me guys.
Today is such a day full of pictures and stories that I decided to cut it in 4 parts. This morning we started with an unexpected and short visit of an old temple. Then we cycled to Suphan Buri where we ate breakfast and visited a famous temple called Wat Palelai. The rest of the visit will be described in the coming posts.
