Eytan Baer, a future student of Johnson & Wales in Florida, has traveled to more than 40 countries throughout his lifetime. Eytan Baer has visited such countries as Thailand, where he enjoyed visiting temples and boating on the Clomg rivers in Bangkok.
Bangkok is full of popular sites and destinations such as Wat Suthat, a vast temple surrounded by unique streets. Although the temple was never restored properly, it is still home to several outstanding fresco paintings, along with a ceremonial red swing that was the city’s former civic emblem. Another temple in the area if Wat Pho, the city’s largest and oldest Buddhist temple. The temple houses the famous 49-foot-high Reclining Buddha image, which is covered in gold leaf and runs over 45 meters long.
Chinatown offers some of Bangkok’s best street food and market experiences. On the northern edge of Chinatown, tourists find the Pak Klong Talad, a wholesale flower market full of local orchids and bird-of-paradise plants. Meanwhile, Yaowarat Road provides hungry tourists with local food such as crab fried rice.
