Photoblog: Shimmering Bangkok

Posted on May 27, 2009 by

Bangkok, despite its notorious traffic congestion and noise pollution, is almost like an Asian royalty decked out in subtle shimmer. From its gorgeous golden temples and pagodas, to the intricate craftsmanship of its glittering art and craft, let Alberto bring you on a Photo Tour through Thailand’s Capital of religion, architecture and culinary delights.
