1. Wat Arun
The Temple of Dawn in Bangkok is just by the river. It literally glows when the sun is setting – totally instagrammable

It is a 218,000-square-meter walled city of royal residences, throne halls, Buddhist temples, and priceless works of art. You will take at least 3 hours to finish exploring the magnificence of the entire palace.

These are some of the most fearsome animals that have ever existed on Earth. Although they may be scary, they are mostly quite tame as they have been handled by humans from young.

The “White Temple,” is an intricate structure of a Buddhist temple. It is now the highlight of Chiang Mai, or perhaps even any Thailand trips. The white represents religious purity, as opposed to the garish gold that decorates most Buddhist temples in Thailand.
