    Pretty much a must-see on any visit.

      Yes it is, this was my first time in Bangkok so I had to check out the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, despite the hoards of tourists. An amazing place.

    That’s crazy! I want to build a house now that looks like it’s being held up by those little guys!

      That would be pretty cool. They would probably scare off any unwanted visitors as well! 😉
