Day 3 - Bangkok


These are the pricier collections of antique art. It is wise to call ahead and make an appointment. Make this a Saturday, as the Museum of Buddhist Art is only open to groups by appointment during the week. But the latter, at least, is a pretty impressive collection of Buddhist statues, paintings and more.
