Video Diary: Temples & Tradition Along the Chao Phraya
Take a walk through the old town of Bangkok, also known as Rattanakosin, and you will truly get a shot of local Thai life. Here there are quiet streets for walking, with hidden temples and local, generations-old restaurants and street food stalls on display for all to see and taste.
Another perk of this area of Bangkok, is that it is home to the majestic temples along the Chao Phraya River. No visit to Bangkok, especially for first-timers, is complete without experiencing the beauty and serenity of the likes of Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Po and Wat Arun.
