Welcome to this week’s edition of Sunday Snapshot. This week I’m featuring a photo from one of my favourite cities, a place I return to often. In fact I’ll be returning again in September!
Which city is YOUR favourite?
It was a hot, sticky, sweaty day in Bangkok the last time I visited Wat Pho. I had been exploring various stops along with Chao Phraya River with my friend Peung, and before heading back towards Sukhumvit Road we decided to visit Wat Pho.
While most visitors gravitate to the Grand Palace, my favourite temple is Wat Pho, with its reclining golden buddha (the largest in Bangkok), and colourful stupas. We spent so much time wandering through the temple buildings, taking photos, and laughing. It was by far one of my favourite days in Bangkok, and I’m excited to hang out with Peung again as we both return to the city.
It makes me sad when people say that they hate the BKK, as I don’t think they have given it a chance; true there is a lot of traffic and it can take awhile to get around, but there is so much to see and experience during you visit. The trick is to find an area you want to explore and focus on that. Bangkok is not a wandering type city.
