We had learned our lesson and made our way to Wat Phra Kaew in the morning. It was absolutely stunning. Very crowded, but that didn’t matter at all. I would say this was certainly one of my favourite temples we visited on our trip in Thailand. And trust me, we visited A LOT! The details in the mosaics that covered the temples were absolutely amazing. And the sun made everything glisten. After walking around in there for a few hours, we also went into the Grand Palace. Which was stunning as well.
We then took a minibus to Kanchanaburi. Firstly, we visited the JEATH War Museum which was simple yet unmissable when visiting Kanchanaburi. It really set the mood for the rest ouf our little excursion and it was also just nice to get some background information on the history of this place.
Our busdriver took us to our next stop: the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery. We then made our way to the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai (also known as Death Railway) which was SO COOL! We had the luck of arriving there at a moment when not a lot of tourists were there, so we were able to walk over the bridge and take our time to take in the beautiful scenery.
In the evening, we went back to Khao San Road where we enjoyed a delicious meal in an awesome restaurant.
