The Grand Palace in Bangkok

Visiting the Grand Palace in Bangkok was probably the highlight of my trip in Thailand. It was truly a surreal experience walking through the palace grounds in all its splendor. タイのメディアツアーの中で最も楽しみにしていたのがバンコクの王宮での訪問でした。こんなに立派な王宮を訪れるのは人生で初めてで、その品のある輝きには圧倒されました。 One of the first things I noticed before entering the palace was the amount of people dressed in black from head to toe, waiting … Continue Reading

The Vogue Lounge, Bangkok
