GET THE LOOK
What words can I use describe the many temples of Bangkok? Grand, colorful, beyond opulent, simply magnificent. During my South East Asia travels, I spent a full day taking in the Bangkok temple scene
and soaked up every last drop of opulence and history I could manage. My favorite, Wat Suthat, is pictured here. Not nearly the grandest of the temples, its white washed walls, mosaic touches, countless airy archways, and gilded accents were a welcome dose of decor inspiration. It was also less crowded than the more over the top neighboring temples—ideal for quiet reflection, endless daydreaming, and of course, a photo shoot.
