Temple of Emerald Buddha

From the series “The Most Iconic Temples in the World”
The famous Wat Phra Kaeo or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, which is located in Bangkok, is not only a prominent religious site, but also one of the holiest places in the world for Buddhists. The temple was named in honor of its main reliquary - the statues of Emerald Buddha, whose height is 66. Unlike in general, the statue is not cut out of the giant emerald, but from the jadeite, which is an emerald green variety of nephrite.

From the series “The Most Dangerous Runways in the World”
In Bangkok is the unique Don Muang Airport, which recalls the huge golf course. This similarity is partly true; the history of airport construction is very interesting.

For almost a hundred years, Don Muang remained one of the most polluting airports in Thailand. Only after the opening of the Suvarnabhumi airport Don Muang has become a little 'offended'. It is remarkable that the golf center is now open in the airport, although it is forbidden to be on its territory during the landing of the aircraft. Not all experienced pilots with several years of experience are able to get the plane to the real golf course. At … Read all
