|These pictures are taken during my trip to
Thailand in June 2003. I did not go there alone nor with my family
members. But with my secondary school buddies It was an enjoyable
holiday for all of us.
We went to quite a number of places like Kangchanlaburi, which is a few kilometers away from Bangkok. (Its picture is on your left.) I have forgotten the actual name of this place in the photo. But I remembered the tour guide told us that long ago these structures were covered with gold and it was during an invasion as the Siamese royal troops retreated. Its enemy began to monopolise this area and started craving the gold off these structures.
|Besides visiting the famous structures, we
also made a visit to this "Death Railway". It was a very
famous railway in Thailand as it was built during the Second World
War(WW2) under the Japanese occupation and took thousands of Prisoners
of War(POWs) to build this structure. These POWs were mainly Chinese,
Malay and British caught during WW2.
|Other than the above two visits, we also went
to the floating market. It was a great sights for us as we have never
seen such a market before. Furthermore, the food items there sell
|Lastly, before our return to Singapore. We
made our last visit to this most famous institute in Thailand known as
Chulalongkorn University. He(Chulalongkorn) was a very famous king
during his reign and maintained peace and order throughout his control.
