There is a dress code, but the management have a very organised system where inappropriately dressed tourists get a loan of ‘suitable items.’ Apparently Randall’s ankles and elbows weren’t going to offend anyone, but the shawl I usually wear over head and shoulders didn’t cut the mustard. I’d been wondering why I’d seen so many frumpily-dressed people wandering around:

A ‘properly dresses’ apparently.

All worthwhile though: Grand Palace of Bangkok:

Tales from the Ramayana, Thai Buddhist style. Renovation in progress.

OK, so I was a bit Wat-ed out by this point and getting bored…

Time to head to Wat Pho to see the enormous Reclining Buddha:
