Thailand’s Grand Palace never fails to astound me every time. My mother and I made a short trip to Bangkok last month, and we just had to visit the Grand Palace again (Previous post here).

The intricate details of buildings are magnificent. A quick stroll around the complex will easily transport you to another world. The Grand Palace may not be the official residence of the Royal family now, but it remains as a spiritual symbol of the powerful Thai kingdon (particularly in the early 20th century). As Thailand has never been colonised, the country is steeped in traditions and art not seen elsewhere, and the Grand Palace reflects that beautifully.

    What a coincidence because I actually drafted a line about how the palace evokes imaginations of scenes from "The King and I" (because I've only seen that version) ;)

    Thank you, Korin ;) The Grand Palace is THAT beautiful, and I'm glad I was able to capture its beauty. Have you been to Thailand?

    Rushing out the door but will be back to comment properly late. I just wanted to say that every time I take a break from reading blogs, I always return feeling so excited about seeing your photos and this is no exception! I feel like cancelling my Christmas and heading East instead! Stunning Aggie! Okay, must dash…
