Nicknamed the Marble Temple, the Wat Benchamabophit is a Buddhist temple constructed of white Carrana marble by King Rama V in 1901. A mix of East and West, the temple features European details like stained-glass windows amidst bronze statues of Buddha images. There are 52 representations of the revered spiritual leader in total, depictions drawn from all around Asia. A courtyard, also constructed of marble from Italy, sits inside the temple, offering a peaceful place to reflect.

Thailand is one of the countries I love the most. I’m
never tired of coming back and visit the same temples. There is something so beautiful about this country, the food, it’s friendly people, nice beaches, beautiful temples and the list continues.
For me it is one of the countries in Asia where they are very well used to tourism, so as a traveler you can have a good experience when a destination knows how to treat you. I didn’t have a lot of bad experiences at all but I think Thailand always makes me feel so comfortable and welcoming. Except the tourist visa application, that’s always a nightmare 😂 but that’s something I’m willing to deal for some tom yum soup!
