Thai Tea Anyone??

I have recently decided that I MUST visit Thailand before I die. Its natural beauty is breathtaking, its culture - simply fascinating, and of course, who doesn't love peanuty chicken satay? But besides these, the thing that seems to really draw me in is the jaw-droppingly gorgeous architecture of their temples. Some have the most ornate and intricate designs which are thick in texture, yet the overall construction of the buildings are still relatively delicate. These buildings and the statues inside of them appear to glow with colorful illuminations of gold and other fantastic colors. The Rong Khun Temple, created by Thai artist, Chalermchai Kositpipat, looks as if it is built of snow and ice! See for yourself...

Here are images from the Temple at Doi Suthep...

Wat Phra Kaew:

Wat Phra Sing:

Wat Suwankhuha:

Wat Jong Klang:

But the BEST temple in Thailand has to be...THE TIGER TEMPLE!!!

Seriously...it's no joke. You can pet tigers. And those are some SERIOUSLY BIG KITTIES!
