    The ancient City is located on the outskirts of Bangkok. It is an enormous park of over 800 rai and we rented bicycles to tour the areas. Many old temples and interesting Thai buildings created over 70 years ago.

    During our vacation in Bangkok we had visited the beautiful Grand Palace complex and the Upper Terrace is located within the complex. This is included in the 500 baht ticket price which includes the Wat Phra, Golden Stupa, Grand Palace, Queen Sirikit museum of textiles. The view from this place of the temple complex and the palace is mesmerizing and a paradise for all photography lovers.

    The Royal Plaza, or the Equestrian Plaza as it is sometimes called because of the large statue of King Rama V on horseback that dominates it, is a large rectangle in front of Dusit Palace in Bangkok.

    In June 24, 1932, the Dusit Palace and the Royal Plaza were the scene of an historic revolution that saw Thailand transformed from an absolute monarchy to a democratic constitutional monarchy, with Rama VII King Prajatipok, abdicating in favour of Rama VIII, King Ananda.

    The Royal Plaza is sometimes the scene of more peaceful mass gatherings, such as in 2012, when upwards of a hundred thousand Thais started gathering from the pre-dawn to pay homage to HM King Bumiphol on his birthday on December 5. It was the last time the King, who is in ailing health, made a public appearance on his birthday.

    But even on less auspicious days the Royal Plaza is a hive of activity, with people promenading, sitting under shade trees, or having lunch as improvised street noodle stalls.
