I took this picture in a short stop to feed monkeys.

Last major stop for the day was the Bridge over River Kwai 桂河橋.

On the Thai end of the bridge was a shopping complex, with many shops operated and targeting mainland Chinese customers. I checked out their real ivory, and of course they were not real ivory. Just some cheap imitation without even bother to imitate the unique ivory pattern.

On the other side of the shopping complex was this big tree. Big and old trees are thought to have spirit, I guess.

On the other side of the Kwai River Bridge (The Burma side, I assume) was a monument commorating the Chinese solders who fought the Japanese in WW2. It was still well maintained with proper offerings, etc...

The next day we visited the weekend market in Bangkok. There were probably over 1000 stalls selling all kinds of stuff. This particular section was for pet shops, and I saw this baby parrot.

My kids had lots of fun playing with the puppies. The price was very low comparing to HK.

This one was begging to be taken home???

It was a very hot day, and after 2 hours or so it was too much for us. That evening we had dinner in a place called Blue Elephant.

Today we visited the royal palace. Gold was the theme colour. Some random images from the visit to the palace.

First the buildings.
