Monks on a Water Taxi

Monks on a Water Taxi

A bunch of Buddhist Monks take the water taxi on Bangkok's main river, the Chao Phraya. Behind the boat is one of the most famous temples in Bangkok, Wat Arun. Monks frequently go on 'field trips' like this to other temples. They're all standing on the right side of the boat because that's the 'monk section'. Women cannot touch a monk or his robe, so they situate themselves all together to avoid that.
