My day touring the sacred sites of Bangkok is a blur, so I thought I'd post my favorite photos:



The top-hatted guardian monsters make me smile.



Heavenly spires.



The original massage school.



Statues in yoga poses.



The main chapel.



Animals honoring Buddha.



The sheltering cobra.



Golden doors.



More golden doors.



Roof tiles.

Makes you wonder what Thai people thought of Westerners, doesn't it?

Sure does - is it some kind of honor or some kind of joke?

In the interests of the tourism industry I'm sure it's a positive spin.
