Smog or fog?
The Chao Phraya River is the major river that runs the whole of Bangkok and other cities in Thailand. A huge network of water taxis and ferries crowd the river which are filled with tourists but are mainly used by locals to go about their business.
The Grand Palace is one of the most visited places by tourists. It is the official residence of the royal family so there are areas which are restricted to visitors. The complex is made up of enchanting temples, elegant halls and magnificent gardens.
Some of the temples are active places of worship. I did feel guilty taking snaps while the locals are praying fervently to Buddha.
The temples are very enchanting: gold-plated, magnificently tall and very artfully decorated inside-out. Some of the walls have fascinating murals that take you back in time. It is simply amazing how these people have created such exquisite architecture driven by their spirituality. The Grand Palace

Khao San Road is a strip in central Bangkok where locals and tourists alike love to congregate and be merry. The strip has affordable accommodations, pubs, shopping centers, restaurants, internet cafes, exotic night clubs and massage parlours. This street is always crowded day and night. If you love the night life, then this is the place to be ;)
While walking along Khao San Road we bumped into a street vendor selling local crispy treats....
