Overview

Quote:
You either love Bangkok or you hate it -- I do not believe that people have merely warm feelings reagrding this city. I am one person who loved it!

From the Grand Temple Palace to the street culture, there was an adventure around every corner. I loved learning about the Buddhist religion and relished in the warm smiles I received from almost everyone.

Quick Tips:
