I’m going big for Little Things Thursday today with a huge photo share! Additionally, I’m going to host my Thailand giveaway today, so hold on to your hats! I’m going to make the giveaway super simple. Simply leave a comment and you are entered. I’ll pick a comment number at random and that person will be the winner of my Thai box of surprises!! Sound fun? I’ve got some super fun things to share with one winner!
So day five had us touring a famous Thai temple called Wat Pho. Wat is the Thai word for temple. Wat Pho is the home of The Reclining Buddha. I think this Buddha is best summed up by one of my travel companions who said, ” I don’t think I was prepared for the size of this.” She was referring to the size of the Buddha. You just don’t know until you know. Wat Pho seems to be a mix of traditional Thai Buddhism with some Chinese influence. Wat Pho is also the birthplace of the traditional and somewhat painful Thai massage. You can’t leave Thailand without one.
To enter the site, you must remove your shoes and you must be dressed modestly. Otherwise it’s the “Lime Green Coat of Shame” for you. We were already in the know on that one.
If you are ever in Thailand this is a great stop that tends to be less crowded that some of the bigger temples. You can get there by bus, taxi, or river taxi. We took the latter. A temple visit is a great cultural study to help you understand the roots of Thai life.
Okay friends, your turn to share. To join the fun simply: Link back, grab your permalink, link up and mingle. Don’t forget to leave a comment if you would like to enter the drawing for my box of Thai goodies. You won’t be disappointed. I’m keeping it a surprise for the winner, and maybe he or she will share on their blog later??? I think that would make a fun post for them! Or for those without blogs, maybe you would share on Facebook for others to see?
I’ll announce the winner next week!
