Thailand

It is Fun Friday once again at our blogging group, Blogging for Fun. We are doing an A-Z meme. This week we are working on letter T.

Thailand

Prasat Phra Monthian Dharma (The royal pantheon)

Grand Palace

Temple Guards

Doods the "dragon" sipping "dragon fruit juice"

Dragon fruit, it taste like a combination of peach, apple and strawberry





Wat Arun is located on the west side of Chao Praya River
(opposite Tha Thien Pier)
Boat ride to cross the river to Wat Arun is only 3 THB

Wat Arun "Temple of Dawn"





Wat Pho - Temple of the Reclining Buddha



one coin, one wish. . .

Food is inexpensive in Bangkok. Grilled prawns at the side walk - 40 THB only, per stick!

The people are religious. They stop and solemnly pray whenever they see a statue of their God. This was taken in front of a mall.

Oh I love Thailand. I love their Wats and their food. Have you tried their sticky rice and bbq chicken on the go. When my friends and I had that relaxing yet torturing Thai massage we grabbed those combo by the road side and had our lunch in the car... very convenient huh.

Fantastic, gorgeous temples! Thanks for the grand tour, Tes. Just absolutely amazing! I love your shot of the Temple Guards best of all — The colors, textures and patterns are fantastic! Love the souvenir shot of you guys as dancers too. Sweet!

I've always loved visiting Thailand. But it has been more than a year since I visited Bangkok. However, in January this year, I managed to squeeze in a trip to Koh Lipe, the south most island in the Satun district nearest to Langkawi.

Love your pictures and great work on the letter T.
