I still had to go back to Pratunam Market to buy additional RTW for my tiangge because, as per last nightâ€™s inventory, it seemed that half of my purchases were either for me or for pasalubong or for me again.
While MJ went on with her temple-ing (BTW, I insisted that she do that or else sheâ€™d still come with me and shop. Huh! Crazy shopaholic!) I went back to Pratunam Market to do some serious shopping as I only got a few hours left. I intend to join MJ with her temple hopping, if time permits.
Luckily, I was able to stick on my mission -- shop for my tiangge -- and send the stuffs to the cargo forwarder. Just then MJ called that sheâ€™d wait for me in Wat Arun to catch it at sunset.
It was nearly sundown, so I grabbed a cab and went to the port for Wat Arun. I was just glad that I didnâ€™t get lost and still remembered the place.
Wat Arun at sunset is stunning. Full stop. Iâ€™ve seen it before but at daytime and itâ€™s just different at night. Sorry for the bad photos. They didn't give justice.
Since weâ€™re near
We hopped on a tuk-tuk, MJâ€™s first ride, the obligatory photo with the tuk-tuk wasnâ€™t missed.
So we were at the famous backpackersâ€™ area. Well, not so crowded as of the last time I was there, but still noisy and people rowdy. Peace! :)
