Do not miss out on the details inside the shrines. You have to take off your shoes everytime you try to get inside one but not going in meant not seeing beautiful things like this mural.
The paint was faded and chipped in some areas but it gave the walls so much character.
As hot as it was that afternoon when we were in Nakom Pathom, taking photos around the temple was not something to be missed. The details on this huge chedi were beautiful inside and out. We walked around the circular building and saw some monks having classes. I didn't think it was ok to take photos in there so I didn't.
We didn't have many specific goals for our trip to Thailand, but visiting this was one. The actual histrory of the bridge differs from the Alec Guiness movie, and it was interesting to see it first hand.
Also on this site is the JEATH War Museum (Japan England America Australia Thailand Holland) with many artifacts from this chapter of World War II.
We booked this tour with an agent in Bangkok.
This is a landscaped complex about 20 miles from Bangkok. And has something for everyone, a swimming pool, bowling alley, boating and water-skiing to name a few. There is also a Thai Cultural show where you will be shown all manner of local dancing by beautiful girls and boys, some Martial Arts and Elephant displays.
Nice place to visit.
Did the touristy thing here.
Lovely gardens, riding elephants, cultural show.
Kids loved it.
This is one of the 3 War Cemeteries beside the Chungkai & Thanbyuzayat. These tomb stones were to commemorate those no know grave by name, not the actual buried site. Not a happy life place.
Thai Boxing - a touristic attraction in Rose Garden Pavilion ! In fact a tourist trap but nevertheless a national sport !!
PHRA PATHOM CHEDI - at Nakhon Pathom
This Chedi or Pagoda is the tallest Buddhist shrine in the world and one of the most sacred places of worship for Thai Buddhists.
The Rose Garden, a few hours' drive from Bangkok...
...offers a general view of Thai culture. It features a daily cultural show, with the parade of elephants as one of the highlights.
Part of the trip to the River Khwae is a visit to the War cemetery in Kanchanburi. The cemetery is poignant place and is beautifully kept by the Thai people.
