This weekend just passed saw the 100th anniversary of Hualamphong, or Bangkok Railway Station as it is officially known. After reading the publicity blurb in the papers, and with nothing better to do, the GF and I went off to check it out.
I’ll be polite and say I was underwhelmed …
With just a few steam engines on static display, a few food stalls, an empty stage waiting for something or somebody, and no ‘vintage market’ as promised in the publicity there was not much to see.
So after snapping a few photos we headed off to Chinatown for lunch, via Wat Traimit so Porn could pay her respects to the Golden Buddha. I’ve seen it enough times that I don’t need to pay another 100baht for the privilege.
So I waited in the shade of the banana trees below while she went and did her thing.
I was thinking of lunch at a proper restaurant, maybe some seafood, but Porn had other ideas and chose a small hole in the wall noodle shop …she’s a cheap date 🙂
