The Ancient Siam

How often do you go on field-trips?

One of the many highlights of our homeschooling program is going on field-trips every quarter. We find it very educational when we go out there and see for ourselves different sights and people in their actual daily lives. Last year, one of our destinations was Ancient Siam in Bangkok. We were all excited to see what's in there. We heard they have historical and cultural sites that we could learn about.






It was a big area to walk around so we needed to ride a golf cart.


We stopped several times at almost every site to take picture and to read the inscriptions on the walls and on the sign boards.

Come and have a virtual field-trip with us!



Thailand is generally a Buddhist country so we saw a lot of shrines and temples.











This is our favorite stop; the floating village where we had our lunch. We saw many sellers selling food on their boats.


Inside the floating village, we saw a Mosque and a Church of Christ where we took picture of this verse.


We hope you enjoy your trip as we did!
