방콕을 올 때 한번은 꼭 가볼만 하지만 두번은 안온다는 #방콕왕궁#왓프라깨우#watprakaew
나름대로 유럽에서 알려진 수많은 문화유적&관광지를 돌아봤지만 여기만큼 사람으로 꽉차고 들끓는다는 표현이 적절한 곳은 없었음.... 특히 그 유명한 에메랄드 불상 보러 대웅전 안에 들어갔을때 그 컬쳐쇼크는 참;; 불상 자체는 볼만하긴 한데 거기에 집중을 못하게 만듬-- 사원 곳곳의 탑들과 장식을 하나하나 보면 예쁘고 충분히 볼 만한 가치가 있지만, 워낙 사람에 치이다 보니 그걸 충분히 즐길 여유는 생각하기 힘든 지경.
그래도 방콕 와서 태국의 전통 건축+사원을 한번 보고 싶다면, '나 태국 왔다'는 인증이 필요한 사람들이라면 한번 와서 보기를 추천함
그리고 가능하면 가이드 끼고 가는게 좋음. 표도 빨리 끊을 수 있고 그 정신없는 분위기에서 그래도 뭘 어떻게 봐야하는지 알 수 있으니까ㅇㅇ
There are more than 400 wats (temples) scattered all around Bangkok but the 3 are most famous ones:
Wat Pra Kaew,
Wat Arun Ratchavararam &
& This is one among them. .
Seriously cannot get over pictures from the Grand Palace in Bangkok 😍 Even more stunning in real life✨ Just uploaded the Bangkok Temple Tour on my Hindi channel as well - YouTube.com/sugarspicenicehindi or link in bio...do watch 😊
The founding gem of the Rattanakosin Kingdom, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is located within the precincts of the Grand Palace.
While being the enshrinement of the deeply venerated statue of the Emerald Buddha, this magnificent temple showcases the much-embellished styles of Thai temples.
It is worth dedicating a whole day or more pacing around and appreciate the works of high Thai art. Also, take your time walking through the compound wall, all 2 kilometres in length, that is exquisitely covered with hand-painted murals depicting the Ramayana sagas.
The first day going back to work after a long holiday is always the hardest, right? But I guess, it really depends on if you love what you do, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A lot of people work hard for success doing things that don’t make them happy. Being as how tomorrow isn’t guaranteed for any of us, optimizing for fulfillment right now sounds pretty wise. Besides, the success isn’t guaranteed, but the struggle is. So you’d better enjoy the struggle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So at some point, you need to take a job you love. I think people are out of their minds if they keep taking jobs that they don’t like because they think it’ll look good on their resume. To put it as Warren Buffett did, “isn’t that a little like saving up sex for your old age?” 💩
Funny story: as I was posing around while taking this photo, my dress accidentally revealed my legs. The female security guard came to me with a sheepish smile and told me “don’t move so much... too sexy for Buddhist temple” 😂 Oops, sorry sorry ✌🏻
