At the end of Randammnoen Rd is Wat Phra Singh one of the most important temples in the old town.
It’s the wat to go if you want to see centuries-old wall paintings inside these little structures.
Hmmm… these two guys faces seem too close to each other.
Food and souvenir stalls had been set-up at the grounds and that’s where I had my first som tam (papaya salad) (TH 40) for this trip.
Time to go to the toilet. Temples usually have clean modern toilets as many tourists go there. Wat Phra Singh’s was exceptional however. It looked like a mall toilet. Rows and rows of urinals and toilet stalls equipped with toilet rolls and a bidet faucet.
In between piped-in music, a speaker blurted out, “Hello. You are at an international level toilet . . . ” Just to prove how serious that claim is, there’s a board full of plaques.
You need to leave your shoes on shelves by the entrance and wear rubber slippers provided. There’s no toilet fee but the voice-over reminds you to make a donation. After all, international level toilets need their maintenance.
If you’re in the area and you need to poop badly, you know where to go. As soon as you enter, turn left on the rows of structures on the side of the complex.
