Exploring Bangkok on Sunday Afternoon

August 21, 2011

After I finished the bicycle rally for Bangkok Car Free Sunday, I went to to take some pictures at two events that were taking place today.

My first stop was the Museum of Siam (A) where they were having a Rice Harvesting Festival. It will continue for the next two Sundays. The museum itself is really worth a visit.I then headed north to check out Sanam Luang (B). It has recently been opened after a long renovation period. The grass was certainly look very green. My next stop was the Bangkok Tourism Office where I picked up some brochures including a couple on bicycle routes around Bangkok. From the pier here there is a River Walk (C) that goes all the way up to Santichaiprakarn Park and Phra Sumen Fort (D). That is where I finished my afternoon at the Food Festival by the River.

The following are my tweets from this day trip:
