Takiego szybkiego t臋pa zwiedzania jak w Ayutthayi, to jeszcze nie mieli艣my... Dojechali艣my tam busikiem z Kanchanaburi, niestety dosy膰 p贸藕no, wi臋c do odjazdu naszego nocnego poci膮gu mieli艣my zaledwie 3 godziny. Zdecydowali艣my si臋 zobaczy膰 to co najwa偶niejsze, jak zawsze pom贸g艂 nam w tym przewodnik.

Wynaj臋li艣my "tuk tuka" na 2h, kierowca poobwozi艂 nas po wybranych 艣wi膮tyniach. Ma艂a ciekawostka- tylko w tym mie艣cie, te 艣mieszne pojazdy przypominaj膮 swoj膮 konstrukcj膮 Lorda Vadera. 馃槀 Zdarzyli艣my zobaczy膰 le偶膮cego budd臋 i 3 艣wi膮tynie, do ostatniej wkradli艣my si臋 po zamkni臋ciu, niestety by艂o ju偶 ciemno, ale za to romantycznie! Zdj臋cia musia艂am wyj膮tkowo zaporzyczy膰 z internetu od innych podr贸偶nik贸w, wybaczcie! 馃檲

Such speed of sightseeing as in Ayutthaya, we didn't have before... We drove there from Kanchanaburi, unfortunately quite late, so that the departure of our night train was in next 3 hours. We decided to see what is most important, as always with help of the guidebook.

We rented a "tuk tuk" for 2h, the driver drove us to the chosen temples. Small interesting fact- only in this city, these funny vehicles resemble by the design Lord Vader. We managed to see lying buddha and 3 temples, to the last one we managed to sneak into after closing, unfortunately it was already dark, but romantic! I had to borrow the pictures from other travellers, sorry for that!

Tuk Tuk

Lying Buddha Statue

Wat Phra Si Sanphet 馃惪

Trzy wspania艂e s艂upy to wizyt贸wka Ayutthayi.

Tak kiedy艣 wygl膮da艂 teren pa艂acu, zbudowanego pod koniec XV w. Kompleks sta艂 si臋 wzorem dla pa艂acu kr贸lewskiego w Bangkoku (zobacz wpis z Bangkoku ).

This is how the area of the palace used to look like, which was built in the late fifteenth century. The complex become a exemplar for the royal palace in Bangkok (see my post from Bangkok ).

Wat Chaiwatthanaram

Wat Mahathat

Ta 艢wi膮tynia jest znana, w艂a艣nie z tej oto s艂ynnej g艂owy Buddy, kt贸ra zosta艂膮 uwi臋ziona w korzeniach. Legenda g艂osi, 偶e le偶a艂a ona na ziemi i korzenie podnios艂y j膮 do pionu. To symbol miasta Ayutthaya oraz nie艣miertelno艣ci Buddy.

This temple is known, precisely from this famous Buddha's head, trapped in the roots. Legend says, that it was lying on the ground, and that the roots raised it up to the vertical position. It is a symbol of the city Ayutthaya and of the immortality of Buddha.

Shrimps time! 馃馃

Po zwiedzaniu, czas na uczt臋 kulinarn膮! Wybrali艣my polecan膮 w Lonely Planet restauracj臋, kt贸ra jest znana z pysznych, i przede wszystkim 艣wie偶ych krewetek. Wybrali艣my te w sosie z tamarynowca, kolejne chyba z chili, nie pami臋tam i tak pierwszych nic nie przebije!

After sightseeing, there is time for dining! We chose a restaurant, which was recommended in the Lonely Planet, known for its delicious and fresh shrimps. We picked the ones in brindleberry sauce, next one I guess were with chili, I don't really remember, nothing beat the first dish!

Na koniec dnia, pojechali艣my na dworzec, sk膮d mieli艣my poci膮g "sleeper" do Chiang Mai. Czekajcie na kolejny wpis, b臋dzie ciekawie! 馃崁

At the end of the day, we went to the station, from where we had a "sleeper" train to Chiang Mai. Stay tuned for the next post, it will be interesting!

Wyj膮tkowe, przepi臋kne i koj膮ce miejsce, czyli Wodospady w Parku Narodowym Erawan. Dojechali艣my tam z Kanchanaburi, wygodnie le偶膮c na tyle samochodu. Uda艂o nam si臋 wynegocjowa膰 dobr膮 cen臋 z Tajem, kt贸ry czeka艂 na nas do samego ko艅ca odwiedzin parku i odwi贸z艂 z powrotem do hostelu. 馃憣馃徎

By艂o naprawd臋 niesamowicie! Wspinaczka nie by艂a wcale 艂atwa, na sam膮 g贸r臋 jest do pokonania odleg艂o艣膰 2,5 km! Jest a偶 7 poziom贸w z wodospadami, ka偶dy zaskakuje czym艣 innym! Mimo, 偶e mieli艣my bardzo dobre t臋po, zabrak艂o nam dos艂ownie ostatnie 200m. 偶eby wej艣膰 na sam szczyt, stra偶nik zacz膮艂 gwizda膰, co oznacza艂o, 偶e jest zbyt p贸藕no aby dalej podchodzi膰 pod g贸rk臋... Czuj臋 jednak, 偶e wyprawa by艂a idealna i dostarczy艂a nam du偶o przyjemno艣ci, jak i adrenaliny! Ach i dodam jeszcze, 偶e w wodzie p艂ywa艂y bardzooo du偶e ryby, kt贸re gustuj膮 w ludzkim martwym nask贸rku, mojemu ch艂opakowi to nie przeszkadza艂o, ale ja piszcza艂am jak dziecko! 馃槀

Unique, beautiful and soothing place, Waterfalls is Erawan National Park. We drove there from Kanchanaburi, comfortably lying on the rear of the car. We were able to negotiate a good price with Thai man, who was waiting for us until the very end of the visit in the park, and drove us back to the hostel.

It was really amazing! Climbing was not easy, all the way up is around 2.5 km! There are 7 levels of Waterfalls, each surprise by something else! Although we had a very good speed, we missed literally last 200m. to reach the top. The guard began to whistle, which mean,t that it was too late to continue climbing the hill ... I feel, even though, that the expedition was perfect and gave us a lot of pleasure and adrenaline! Oh, and I must add, that in the water were very big fishes, who like eating human dead epidermis. My boyfriend did not mind, but I screamed like a child!

On the way!

Chcia艂am Wam pokaza膰 jak fajnie i tanio mo偶na spa膰 w Tajlandii. "D hostel" to w艂a艣nie jedno z takich miejsc, zarezerwowali艣my go standardowo przed booking.com, faktycznie oceny nie k艂ami膮! Za dwie osoby ze skromnym 艣niadaniem zap艂acili艣my oko艂o 90 z艂. Dodatkowo w艂a艣ciciel by艂 przemi艂y i zabra艂 nas do lokalnego miejsca, na najlepsze noodle, jakie kiedykolwiek jedli艣my! PYCHA 馃構

P贸藕niej podjechali艣my skuterkiem zje艣膰 co艣 na ulicznym targu, popijaj膮c tajsk膮 mleczn膮 herbat膮, jak zawsze zbyt s艂odk膮! 馃檲 Dzie艅 zako艅czyli艣my spacerem po s艂ynnym mo艣cie na Rzece Kwai.

I wanted to show you how to crusch in Thailand, cheap and nicely. D hostel is actually one of those places, we booked it as always, via booking.com, the marks didn't lie again! For two people with "small" breakfast we payed around 20 euro. Additionally the owner was very nice, and took us to a local place, where we ate the best noodles ever! Delicious.


Later we drove on scooter to a street market to eat something more, while sipping a Thai milk tea, as always too sweet! We finished our day by walking down the famous Bridge on the River Kwai.

P贸藕nym wieczorem dop艂yn臋li艣my 艂贸dk膮 do ba艣niowej krainy. Zjedli艣my kolacj臋 w hotelowej restauracji i poszli艣my spa膰. Nast臋pny ranek by艂 wyj膮tkowo pi臋kny, otaczaj膮ca ziele艅 i klimat robi艂y swoje! Po wczesnym 艣niadaniu spakowali艣my plecaki i ponownie wsiedli艣my w 艂贸dk臋, aby wr贸ci膰 do przystani. Nast臋pnie z艂apali艣my lokalny autobus, kt贸ry dowi贸z艂 nas do Kanchanaburi, gdzie zameldowali艣my si臋 w nowoczesnym hostelu.

Late evening we arrived by boat to the feritale land. We ate the supper in hotel restaurant and went to sleep. The following morning was increadably beautiful, the surrounding greenery and climate, did their job! After early brealfast, we packed our backpacks, and again got on the boat, to go back to the pier. Next we caught a local bus, that drove us to Kanchanaburi, where we checked into a modern hostel.

Home sweet home...

Kolejnym etapem podr贸偶y by艂a rzeka Kwai. Tym razem troszeczk臋 zaszaleli艣my i zdecydowali艣my si臋 na urocze domki w jednym z lepszych hoteli na River Kwai.

Jak tam dotarli艣my?
Pierwsz膮 odleg艂o艣膰 z Bangkoku pokonali艣my mini busem, nast臋pnie poci膮g z Kanchanaburi do Nam Tok, widoki by艂y przepi臋kne! Ostatni odcinek przep艂yn臋li艣my urokliw膮 艂贸deczk膮 pod sam hotel. Co prawda by艂o ju偶 ciemno, ale i tak zapiera艂o dech w piersi...

As the next stop of the journey, we headed to River Kwai. This time, we decided to spend a little bit more of money, so we booked cosy bungalow in one of the best hotels in the area.

How did we get there?
A first distance from Bangkok we passed with mini bus, then the train from Kanchanaburi to Nam Tok, the views were spectacular! The last section we traveled in the charming little boat, which sailed us right into the hotel. True, it was already dark, but still breathtaking ...

Zdj臋cia z miejsca do kt贸rego dotarli艣my p贸藕nym wieczorem, ju偶 w kolejnym po艣cie!

Our day went so perfectly in time, that we managed to climb to the top of the Golden Mount hill, and enjoy the sunset. Seen from above, the Bangkok skyline, seemed even more powerful ...

Czyli cienki makaron ry偶owy, sma偶ony z suszonymi i/lub 艣wie偶ym krewetkami , kie艂kami fasoli, jajkiem, tofu i przyprawami. Tradycyjnie podawany z po艂贸wkami limonki, kilkoma 艂odygami szczypiorku chi艅skiego i plastrami kwiatu bananowca. Serwowany w s艂ynnej restauracji Thip Samai, kt贸ra s艂ynie w艂a艣nie z tego dania.

Smaki zupe艂nie inne ni偶 w Warszawskich Tajskich restauracjach, wreszcie wiem jak powinien smakowa膰 Dobry Pad Thai! Porcje nie by艂y bardzo du偶e, na dwie osoby zjedli艣my 3 wersje tego dania. 馃構

So thin rice noodles, fried with dried and/or fresh shrimp, bean sprouts, egg, tofu and spices. Traditionally served with lime halves, a few stalks of Chinese chives and slices of banana flower. Served in the famous restaurant Thip Samai, which is known because of this dish.

Flavours were very different than those I kno, from Thai restaurants, located in Warsaw. I finally know how good Pad Thai should taste like! Portions were not very big, for two people we managed to eat 3 versions of this dish.

This place is necessary to visit, while being in Bangkok! At the end I got a lovely sticker from the waiter.

Let's begin!

Spices

1. SUPERB PADTHAI

2. BASIC PADTHAI

3. I don't remember the name 馃檴

Dzie艅 zacz臋li艣my od podro偶y promem przez rzek臋 Menam... Niestety standardowo taks贸wkarz chcia艂 nas oszuka膰 i zawi贸z艂 nas nie tam gdzie chcieli艣my, strasznie pr贸buj膮 naci膮ga膰 turyst贸w, jednak uparci wreszcie dotarli艣my do przystani dedykowanej dla tutejszych ludzi. Po dop艂yni臋ciu nadesz艂a kolej na zwiedzanie s艂ynnych 艣wi膮ty艅, czyli Wat Phra Kaew & Wat Pho, zajrzeli艣my te偶 do szko艂y dla m艂odych mnich贸w...

Nast臋pnie wyg艂odniali ruszyli艣my na podb贸j knajpy, gdzie mo偶na zje艣膰 najlepszego Pad Thaia w Bangkoku (Lonely Planet), haha u nas sko艅czy艂o si臋 na trzech! Na koniec wyprawa na Golden Mountain (kolejny wpis), akurat wyrobili艣my si臋 na zach贸d s艂o艅ca! Byli艣my tak zm臋czeni, 偶e wieczorkiem wr贸cili艣my do hostelu, jednak po odpoczynku ruszyli艣my dalej do miasta! Przecie偶 trzeba zje艣膰 kolacj臋!

We starter the Day from the boat trip through the Menam river. As always, the taxi driver did a scam, he drowe us to the wrong place, even thought we as stubbern and experienced turists managed to arrive to the correct harbour for local people. After the arrival, there was time to explore the famous temples, called: Wat Phra Kaew & Wat Pho, we also saw the school for young monks.

Next we felt really starving, so we headed to the restaurant, where you can eat the best Pad Thai in Bangkok (Lonely Planet), we ended up eating three! At the end, we climbed to the Golden Mountain (next post), perfectly on the sunset! We were so tired, that in the evening we returned to the hostel. After resting a little bit we went to the nearby city! After all, you have to eat a supper!

Good Morning!

Jet lag nie da艂 o sobie zapomnie膰, 3h drzemka w ci膮gu dnia musia艂a mie膰 miejsce... Jenak 6h r贸偶nicy w czasie i cz艂owiek czuje si臋 jak Zombie! Wczoraj musieli艣my ogarn膮膰 bilety na sleeper do Chiang Mai, nie by艂o 艂atwo! Na tydzie艅 do przodu nie by艂o 偶adnych miejsc, a hotel ju偶 zarezerwowali艣my. Jednak tak jak si臋 spodziewa艂am (by艂o tak w Indiach), bilety wykupywa艂y agencje i sprzedawa艂y dro偶ej...

Po drzemce ruszyli艣my do Chinatown na kolacj臋, a nast臋pnie na s艂ynn膮 ulic臋 Khao San (Kac Vegas w Bangkoku). Mam dla was kilka zdj臋膰. 鉁岎煆

Jet lag was not possible to forget about, 3 hours nap was really needed. Indeed, 6 hours of time switch, and you feel like Zomie! Yesterday we had to buy sleeping train tickets to Chiang Mai, that wasn't easy! For a week ahead there were no tickets, but we already booked the hotel. Like I was suspecting (same in India), the agencies were buying the tickets and selling them more expensive...

After the nap, we went to Chinatown to eat super, and next to the famous street Khao San (Kac Vegas in Bangkok). I have for you few pictures.

Obawiam si臋, 偶e przez zmian臋 czasu m贸j post jest troszeczk臋 sp贸藕niony. Desperacko chcia艂am opublikowa膰 wpis w samolocie, ale jak wszyscy wiemy, jest to niemo偶liwe! Wcze艣niej niestety nie znalaz艂am chwili... Prawdopodobnie w czasie pobytu, b臋d臋 mie膰 cz臋sto problemy z wifi, mam nadziej臋, 偶e nie wp艂ynie to znacznie na realizacj臋 codziennych post贸w...

A wi臋c dolecia艂am szcz臋艣liwie do Bangkoku, zaledwie w 9 godzin! Mam dla Was pare fotek sprzed wylotu. Ju偶 w kolejnym wpisie troch臋 Bangkoku...

I'm affraid, that beceause of time change, my post is a little bit too late. I despretly wanted to publish it, in the plane, but as we all know, it's mission impossible. Unfortunately, I didn't find a moment to do it earlier. Probably during the trip, I will often have troubles with wifi, I hope this will not massively impact my daily posts realisation!

So, after around nine hours of flight, I happily landed in Bangkok. Here I have for you few pictures from b4 the flight. In the next post, anticipate a bit of Bangkok...
