The City of Angels is a traditional Thai nickname for Bangkok because that was the name of the capital established on the West bank of the river in 1782.
I just spent a week in Bangkok, Thailand. It was one of the most amazing and moving experiences I’ve had. I’ve never seen such wonderful beauty, and crushing poverty in the same place. It is the most exotic place I’ve visited yet.
Over the next week or two I will upload my "City of Angels" photos as I edit them.
I took this photo at Wat Phra Kaeo – a Buddhist temple of such grand decor that Disney would have trouble imagining or matching such place. It was truly amazing.
