Bangkok Bling Bling
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
It was about 7 years ago when I went to Thailand, the second time I went abroad. I went with a group of American friends of mine, to cure my sadness of not being able to get the Schengen Visa for Europe. If I cannot go to Europe, at least I can go to Thailand, a beautiful destination after all.
I am not a big fan of big cities. People everywhere, High risers, big modern streets … they are the same everywhere. I would much rather see something different, something I have never seen before. Glad that my fellow Americans are with me. We didn’t spend much time in Bangkok before headed to the islands.
But while you are there, make sure to check out the Grand Palace. It is magnificent and mind blowing. Compare to the Chinese Palaces, they are oh so bling bling and fancy, especially love the very pointy tops of the temples.
