A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCE.
Living in Bangkok, Thailand for 20 years, I endeavour to share my experience with The Grand Palace Bangkok, Emerald Buddha Temple Bangkok -(Wat Phra Kaew), Reclining Buddha Temple Bangkok -(Wat Pho).

The lineage and origins of The Emerald Buddha, in part is unclear, what is certain, it is greatly revered from the Royal family to Thai nationals alike, as Thailand’s utmost precious religious icon, for good reason.
A cultural phenomenon and truly a once in a lifetime experience.

It is greatly revered from the Royal family to Thai nationals alike, as Thailand’s utmost precious religious icon...
The Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) is located 700 meters south of The Grand Palace. Its a world-renowned 46 meter long gold plated reclining Buddha. Its pose is representing entry into complete spiritual enlightenment ending all worldly reincarnations. Within the surrounding corridor there are 108 bronze bowls representing the 108 auspicious characteristics of The Buddha. It is believed dropping coins into these bowls brings wealth and prosperity...
