Royal Palace in Bangkok

We went to sleep in a nice Hotel near Kao San Road. I chose Kao San Road because, I realized, it is the only thing I knew about Bangkok. The more I travel and probably the more I get older, the less I like crowded touristic places.

About Kao San Road, I didn’t expect too much but to be sincere not even so little. I don’t really understand what makes it so famous. There are thousands of streets like that in Europe.

Anyway, someone enjoy it. I don’t.

What instead surprised me positively is the Royal palace. The complex is dedicated for the most part to the temples. It isn’t possible visit the palace where the royal family lives. To visit the complex is required a strict dressing code. They don’t even want open shoes, like sleepers. Unfortunately for them 99% of the tourists wear open shoes. It’s Thailand, summer and hot. So they ignore it.

What they don’t ignore is the rest: they want long trousers and covert shoulders. To solve this problem. 100% of the people. At the entrance an official tells you what you have to borrow from the store room up front a deposit of 200Bat each item. There is also a show of Thai traditional dance at 14.00 but we missed it.

Sono nato nel 1978 in provincia di Cremona. Nella vita si cambia, ma un aspetto di me non è mai cambiato: la voglia di scoprire cosa si nasconde dietro la prossima curva, dietro la collina, la linea d' alberi, oltre l' orizzonte. Molte sono le motivazioni che mi hanno spinto ad imboccare questa strada. Ma questa mia caratterisca è sicuramente alla base di tutto. Riflettendoci è la caratteristica che più sento mia.
