I took this from Kasikorn Bank headquarter in Bangkok, located in Rama 3 Road, near Chaopraya river. It is very beautiful building and full of art things like paintings, sculpture, portrait. It has art gallery display inside the bank too.

I took my niece there early this year, take lot of her photo with animal. This is only one photo I have without people in the scene.
Quite a good zoo. Children will probably love it as it has the usual guests: tigers, giraffes,hippos and the rest. The elephants were as you can imagine quite popular.
There is as well a lake where you can rent one of those waterboats with pedals and pedal for half an hour ( 50 baths the 1/2 hour) and see the gardens. In the lake there are fish, alligators and turtles. Careful not to run them over ;-)
The access to the zoo is really cheap, 30 baths per person and as I said children will love it and it won't break the bank. The grounds used to be originally the private botanical gardens of king Rama V and you can see still the different species of flora cultivated here.
More info is here
I don't know myself either why I take this monument at the backside, probably I have weired mind that time as most of monument is shown only front side. It is monument of King Naresuan the Great, which is located in Phetchaburi Province inside army camp. It is large army camp for paratrooper.
King Naresuan the Great was King of Ayutthaya kingdom from 1590 until his death in 1605. Naresuan was one of Siam's most revered monarchs as he was known for his campaigns to free Siam from Burmese tributary.
We made film about him to, you can see here. It is very good film, and great production.

Klong Tha Dan Dam and its scenic point,which's the biggest Roller-Compacted Concrete(RCC) Dam in the world. It's in Nakhon Nayok province. This project is established by our King to solve flooding in Nakhon Nayok and Prachin Buri area.
It probably is the biggest Chinese temple in Thailand. There are 3 magnificent storeys with EVERY Chinese god you can imagine. Especially you walk down to the basement, you will meet each Chinese gods that take care each year since the world was built
The artistry here is mixed between Chinese, Indian and Thai the wall painting is so beautiful and tender.

I took this photo when I was on the house where selling Thai dessert, this area it was called Ko Kret or Kret island in the Chao Phraya River. It is close to The Dessert Canal (Khlong khanom wan) . I enjoyed the show on how to make Thai desserts and shopping all the sweetmeats as souvenirs.
I select this to be my debut of Thailand-In-Photos blog, only because it is located in my hometown. This is very famous temple in Thailand. The present chapel (ubosot) is a new, beautiful, and gigantic building which has replaced the old one. The chapel actually depicts the style of the applied Rattanakosin period.
Thanks to Gordon, publisher of Adelaide in Photos, who inspired me of putting photo of my country.
