We decided to go to the Golden Palace today. Poppy got the directions and we had to take the canal boat from our hotel to National Stadium. We got onto the skyrail and traveled 6 stops to the Cho Phraya River. Then we got onto a big boat and traveled to the Golden Palace. We saw big barges in the river carrying rubbish out to sea and we saw lots of historical buildings on our way up the river. We loved the boat as the wind cooled us off. When we arrived at the pier we got off and walked to the Golden Palace. It was so hot as we were walking around and there were so many people looking at the statues, temples and palace but we enjoyed seeing all the Thai history. We took lots of pictures and bought a book to remember our visit.

When we finished looking around the palace we walked back to the pier and took another boat on the river back to the skyrail. We decided to have dinner at Siam centre. We had tom yum gai, rice and rasberry slushies with icecream. The drinks cooled our mouths off as the soup was very spicy. Then we walked around and decided to go bowling it was lots of fun and we all played really well. It was a nice break from walking in the heat. We looked for a shop that sold cinnamon buns that nanny liked. Nanny was so happy when we found the shop. After that we went to the supermarket and got some water and mango and sticky rice to take back to our hotel. It was an awesome day!

Wow, all those places look very big and shiny. I bet the bowling was fun! Sounds like you are seeing so much of Bangkok. Bye for now and can't wait to chat on skype. Dad, Mum and Sully
