Bang Pa-In Summer Palace The Royal Palace at Bang Pa-in has a history dating back to the 17th century. The palace is perfectly decorated in harmony with traditional Chinese and Eurpean Style, and is still in use as a holiday destination for the Royal Family during the hot season.

Ayutthaya Ancient Capital
The Ancient City was the former Thai capital for 417 years. The city used to prosper being head of dominant empire and the centre of trade between the East and European countries, such as Britain, France and Holland.

Recenlty declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Historic Ayutthaya temples are scattered throughout this once magnificient city and along the surrounding rivers. River Sun Cruise has selected the highlights of the site for your visit including Wat Maha That, Wat Lokayasutharam and Wat Na Phra Mane.

Wat Na Phra Mane - See the most charming Buddha Image in Ayutthaya City

It's believed that Wat Na Phra Mane was built in 1504. When Ayutthaya was collapsed for the second time, all the Temples, Palaces and most of the City were destroyed, but Wat Na Phra Mane survived. Wat Na Phra Mane contains the most complete Works of Art from the Ayutthaya Period, especially the Image in the main shrine.

Wat Lokayasutharam

Wat Lokayasutharam is an abandoned temple and there is no absolute evidence that tells us which reign it was built in. None of the historical records or any chronicles have mentioned the period of construction. It is assumed that this temple was built in the Ayutthaya period. Perhaps it was abandoned after the fall of Ayutthaya to the invading Burmese in 2310 B.E.

Bangkok Trip - part 1

We went to Bangkok for a short holiday trip from 9th to 12th Jan '08. The last time we went for traveling, I was in 3 month pregnancy with Jeff. This time I'm bring a 7-month big "belly" and 2 more kids with me; this really gave me a very good experience. We were all very exhausted, nevertheless we had a very much fun and exciting trip. :)

I never expected to carry such a big "belly" to travel. I thought I would not be able to go anywhere. We bought the air tickets before I'm expecting. After consulting with my gynea, we went ahead with the trip. :)

We took Air-Asia flight. The plane took off an hour late from the planned 10:50am. Jeff felt asleep before the take off and slept thru the whole flight. By the time we arrived in Bangkok, he was very thirsty. We didn't have any water with us as we weren't allowed to bring more than 100ml liquid on board. I thought of buying some water for him but as he was asleep and I forgot about it. The night that we arrived, Jeff felt sick, probably caused by the dryness. This experience remind me to ask for water for Jeff from the air stewardess when the plane took off on our way back. Although Air-Asia doesn't provide free foods and drinks, they are still willing to serve mummies who are giving their babies or toddlers water. :)
Jeff was having high fever on the first night. Luckily, I brought some medicines with me. After taking the medicine, he slept well that night.

Here are some tips might be helpful for mummy when going abroad with kids

  • Always remember to bring some common medicine with you
  • To bring down fever, we can pour water to a clean diaper and use it as a Koolfever.
  • When toddler having constipation, we can use a clean shower cap as a glove, take a small amount of wet soap and insert in into the anus.
