We were in Bangkok at the beginning of the Lent period. It was so great to see the entire country was off for 3 days. All temples, some closed usually were opened for prayers . It was great to see how the temple was being cleaned, looked after, buidling and restoration work. We witnessed the locals praying, blessings being given by Monks, entered the chamber where the Emerald Buddha was( talking shoes off and not allowed to film or take pictures). The ticket you pay to enter allows you to enter to 2 other attractions. One in the area of the grande palace and another you had to travel to. We took up the offer in the area of the grande palace. It was a small musuem for the the artifacts of the palace and during the construction. Very detailed and interesteing if you are into learning about the history. It was a good day out. When we exited we took a Tuk Tuk. Always agree the price before getting in and show them a map or ask your hotel to write it in Thai, so there is no confusion.
