I purchased a two-day post-extension, and on the first day, I decided to take a taxi to the National Museum. This is Thailand’s premier museum and offers a great introduction to Thai history, ranging from pre-history to the modern era. It includes some priceless objects such as the Ramkhamhaeng Stone inscribed with the earliest extant example of the Thai script. Their collection of Buddhist art from different periods is impressive.
For dinner, I ate at the International restaurant again. I had a curried beef stew with steamed rice and pickled cucumber (I think). I have never been too fond of curry dishes, but I had curry several times on this trip, and liked them.
The branch of Jim Thompson Silk that is located on the grounds of the house sells many small items, such as ties and purses. Live silk worms in a basket.......
