Story by Gabby Cantero March 17th, 2016
Google Bangkok and you’ll feel like you’ve actually been to the place just by looking at the photos. Today, I give you Bangkok in Textures. It’s bits and pieces of this place full of color. This might not be the most helpful entry on Bangkok but I hope you take the time out to appreciate these details in their culture.

Here is a closer at one of my favorite places in Bangkok, The Erawan Museum.

I look back at all of these and can’t help but think how much time, effort and attention to detail was put in building this shrine/temple of sorts.

Pak Klong Talad, Bangkok’s flower market.

It was a few days before Valentine’s and some of the roses here are probably the prettiest I have ever seen.
