First Bangkok Trip - Day 2
Yey, finally Day 2 of my Bangkok trip. Our day started early that day. Even my friend was sick the night before that, I pushed her to wake up around 8 A.M. By 8:55 A.M, were on the streets looking for our breakfast. I was so afraid to try some street foods that we only had the freshly made sandwiches. We also bought rice cakes, which looked like the local Pinoy rice cakes.

After buying some Paracetamol for my friend, we hailed taxis to go to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. We're just shocked that the taxi drivers were asking for a fixed price. After hailing tons of taxis, an American tourist approached us and asked where are we planning to go. According to him Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is so far from Bangkok that's why taxi drivers were asking for a fixed price. He shared to us that he just went to the floating market in the Chao Praya River. He asked us if we want to go there instead and instructed the Tuk Tuk driver.

We went there instead and paid 900 baht each for the two of us. Just a reminder that you need to wear slippers since it is flooded in that area. The boat ride went to the canals where some floating markets reside. We bought some fruits, bread to feed the fish and some drinks. Minutes later, we went to the station where we fed the fish. That experience was awesome! The school of fish were scary big but they were so delighted with the bread that we tried to break into pieces. Anyway, the boat ride ended at Wat Pho.

Watch out for Day 2 Part 2 in Safari World. "Safari World, Safari World!"
