A Thai temple that's not decorated as much as all the others. Our travel guide called it "more adapted to western taste" and I agree. After you visited about two of the standard temples, I can easily recommend this one as a variation on a...More

Dusit
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd
almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city.
The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens
wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and
the serenity here is in stark contrast with the

It would be best if you navigate yourself on the three tours in different days for you to enjoy and appreciate the beauty, more than when you have the tour guide/s as you have a time limit to stay in a certain place. Enjoy... More
