DSC_9934The Hotel PR Association of Thailand, headed by its president Earth Saiswang, and the Crown Property Bureau’s Sustainable Programs Support Department, headed by  KHUN …HATHAIRATH   Yupas…; led a group composed of the association members and media friends and supporters in exploring several “new” cultural heritage attractions in Bangkok’s Rattanakosin District recently.

The “Let’s Explore Rattanakosin Heritage” tour took the group to significant places, often taken for granted by both local and foreign tourists, but are integral to the growth and development of the district that is so rich in cultural, historical, and touristic importance.

The group started the tour with a visit to the Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimitr) in Yaowarat, where the biggest golden Buddha image in the DSC_9940reworld is located and explored the Yaowarat Heritage Museum to re-acquaint themselves with the history of Bangkok Chinatown and its residents. Then, after lunch to sample delicious local specialties at the popular noodle shop nearby, they took a special cruise boat to the Princess Mother Memorial Park maintained and managed by the Crown Property Bureau to pay respect to the legacy of Her Royal Highness the Princess Mother Somdej Phra Srinagarindara Boromarajajonani.  The next stop was Wat Prayoon, recently awarded a UNESCO Certificate of Excellence award for Cultural Heritage Conservation, where the group explored the historical temples, met with the abbot of the temple who gave each member of the group a blessed souvenir, and made merit at the only white chedi in Bangkok.

The tour ended with a delightful evening of food and camaraderie at the riverside eatery, Yok Yor Marina Restaurant, which put a perfect cap to a perfect day.
