2nd day Hunting at Bangkok

Wat phra kaew - Grand Palace
Wat Phra Kaew (English: Temple of the Emerald Buddha, full official name Wat Phra Sri Rattana Satsadaram) is regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple (wat) in Thailand. It is located in the historic center of Bangkok (district Phra Nakhon), within the grounds of the Grand Palace.
The construction of the temple started when King Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke (Rama I) moved the capital from Thonburi to Bangkok in 1785. Unlike other temples it does not contain living quarters for monks; rather, it has only the highly decorated holy buildings, statues, and pagodas.


After visited Wat Phra Kaew, i found few banknote and coins stalls seller opposite grand palace. But price is higher, mostly they sell to foreign tourist.
