Accidental Adventuring : R-Walk

A couple of weeks ago, we didn’t take the usual route home.  It’s amazing what you see when you travel a different way somewhere you are normally on auto-pilot for.  This time, we literally went left instead of right.  Yep, it was that simple!

What we came across, was the R-Walk (or Ratchaprasong Skyline Walk), which is an elevated walkway in the Ratchaprasong area.  There are heaps of shines and interesting spots along the R-Walk.  A bonus is it’s all covered, so cooler and more breezy than on the street at times and wide enough that you can stop to take photos or read about the different shrines without getting in the way of the general public. Win!

We walked only about half of the R-Walk, but intend to walk the whole thing one afternoon to check out all the points of interest along the way.  As always in Bangkok, there are plenty of places to stop and grab a cool drink and something delicious to eat.  You can probably see more places to make note of from the R-Walk so one stroll through won’t be enough.

This is the view of the most popular shine along the walk – the Erawan Shrine.  People queue for sometimes hours to visit this shine.  I only took a haphazard shot of the info board but I like that they have suggested offerings!

I liked the calm of the Indra Shrine after the crazy at the Erawan Shrine….

Enjoy your weekend!
