Bangkok - The Grand Palace and Temples, 2006


The photos in this album were taken during our stopover in Bangkok en route to Bhutan in April 2006.

The album covers our visit to the Grand Palace, which is always spectacular, as well as the temples of Wat Tramit, which holds the "Solid Gold Buddha", and Wat Pho, which holds the famous "Reclining Buddha".
