My brother and I went to Wat Pho after our shopping spree around Thailand.  It is our second time in Bangkok, Thailand. And we really love the place. My mouth fell the first time I saw the Giant reclining Buddha. It was so huge and glittering in gold. Its feet is made of mother of Pearl and everyone is forbidden to touch it. 

The intricate design of buddha’s characteristics is made of mother of pearl . Amazingly beautiful

Oh, it was a wonderful Thailand adventure and I hope to be back soon!
