#2WeeksInBangkok – Day 3: On Day 3 of this video series we first visited Wat Saket (which is known also as the Golden Mount), and then we proceeded on to Loha Prasat. After that we were hungry and went to hear at a Thai rice and curry restaurant at Nang Loeng Market.
00:30 Wat Saket (วัดสระเกศ) – 20 THB ($0.56) – This is a temple not too far from Democracy Monument in Bangkok, and it’s famous as being the Golden Mount, situated on the top of a man-made little hill. One of the highlights of visiting Wat Saket (วัดสระเกศ) when you’re in Bangkok is being able to climb to the top of the staircase (it’s not too tall), and getting a great view of Bangkok from the center of the city.
2:43 Loha Prasat (โลหะปราสาท) – Free – This is another one of the less visited temples in Bangkok, and it’s actually a really interesting temple, also known as the Metal Castle for its shape and design. Just like Wat Saket, you can climb to the top of Loha Prasat (โลหะปราสาท) for another nice view of Bangkok.
4:03 Kluay tod, Man tod (กล้วยทอด มันทอด) – 20 THB ($0.56) – One of the many common Thai street food snacks around Bangkok is deep fried bananas. And walking on our way to lunch we stopped for a bag of deep fried bananas at a very famous place that usually serves them to people in their cars waiting in traffic.
5:56 Nang Loeng Market (ตลาดนางเลิ้ง) and Khao Gaeng Ruttana (ข้าวแกงรัตนา) – We walked over to one of my favorite markets in Bangkok, and although there are plenty of things to choose from to eat, Ying and I both love Khao Gaeng Ruttana (ข้าวแกงรัตนา), the Thai rice and curry restaurant at the market. We got seats, and ordered a number of different dishes. One of the best dishes I had for our meal was hor mok (ห่อหมก), and fish and seafood curry made with Thai curry paste and lots of coconut cream. It was creamy and rich, and so flavorful. At the end of incredible rice and curry meal, I saw them bring out the pan of stink beans and shrimp and had to order it as well – it was outstanding. It’s one of my favorite Thai rice and curry restaurants in Bangkok.
12:50 Nam ponlamai pan (น้ำผลไม้ปั่น) – 35 THB – Located within Nang Loeng Market, there’s an amazing stall that serves some of the finest fruit shakes in Bangkok.
15:09 Marble Temple (วัดเบญจมบพิตร) – 20 THB ($0.56), Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall (พระที่นั่งอนันตสมาคม), Vimanmek Mansion (พระที่นั่งวิมานเมฆ) – After finishing lunch we walked over to Dusit, which is the main government district of Bangkok to do some of the most famous things to do in Bangkok – some of the most well known attractions. Both Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall (พระที่นั่งอนันตสมาคม), Vimanmek Mansion (พระที่นั่งวิมานเมฆ) are worth a visit when you’re in Bangkok and you can get access to both of them using your same entrance ticket as the Grand Palace (so keep your ticket).
18:59 Kuay Teow Neau Nai Soi (ร้านก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อนายโส่ย) – For dinner we came out to a small restaurant that serves Thai beef noodles. I ordered a bowl of kuay teow neua buay pisayt (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อเปื่อยพิเศษ), braised beef and noodles. Read more about this restaurant here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2015/12…
21:35 Lookshin Tongchai (ลูกชิ้นธงชัย) – 7 THB ($0.20) per stick – Finally to end the night, we had a couple skewers of some excellent home-made grilled meatballs.
