Day Two Hundred Forty-Seven

Thailand - The Temple of Dawn, Bangkok

Notes: This is the same temple as shown on the card from October 25th - Wat Arun, or the Temple of Dawn.  This card gives a much better view of the actual architecture of the temple.  According to both the sender and Wikipedia, it is known as Khmer-style architecture.



Thailand - Trading Place at Floating Market, Rajburi

For: Private swap
Notes: Floating markets are apparently quite common, but according to Thamonwan, the Rajburi floating market (seen here), is the most famous.  I think Rajburi might be the same as Ratchaburi, which would make this the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.  The market is open every day until noon, and is a big tourist destination, which unfortunately has impacted its authenticity.
