Earlier this month, actress Maris Racal flew to Bangkok, Thailand along with fellow artist Awra Briguela and some good friends. Their group rented accommodations at an Airbnb and had their first mini adventure the day they arrived by experiencing how to commute by taking a public bus to go to an area called Jeh O Chula for food. Aside from that, they also experienced riding an automatic rickshaw called the tuktuk on their way to Bangkok’s famous Chinatown area.

Maris chronicled their trip in a recent vlog on her YouTube channel which also showed their visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art where international anonymous street artist Banksy had an exhibit. During their third day in the city, Maris’s group took an out-of-the-city trip to a historic city outside Bangkok called Ayutthaya to visit the temples. The drive took a little over an hour.

“So itong lugar na ito, ito yung capital ng Siam dati. Imagine mo dati ang daming nakatira dito, may mga batang tumatakbo diyan, may mga pamilya. It’s very well preserved,“ Maris shared in the vlog.

Maris and Awra also rented bikes to go around the ancient city and see more temples. “Ang ganda kasi ng feeling na mag-bike. Dapat talaga mas malawak yung mga bike spaces or bike lanes sa Pilipinas para mas madaming ma-enganyo mag-bike,” Maris said.

The singer-actress also made sure to appreciate all the historic sites and temples they visited. “Ang galing, prineserve talaga nila. Tingnan niyo 500 years ago tapos nag-build sila ng bagong church around it. Ang galing talaga sobra,” she added.
