Beyond Angkor's Classics: Lost in a Temple

Beyond Angkor's Classics: Lost in a Temple

Some will say Angkor Wat the most beautiful temple in Angkor. I agree on one thing: it's the biggest, probably the most impressive in terms of architecture. But for me, things got really interesting when I found myself lost in a temple, with no noise but singing birds and the wind blowing the trees leaves.

The Most Magical Hidden Temple in Chiang Mai: Wat Pha Lat

I've been to Thailand many times now, and this temple is by far one of the most beautiful discoveries I've had the chance to make. Wat Pha Last is nestled in the forest, a few kilometers down the road to Doi Suthep. Built on the top of a rock, this Buddhist temple is completely out of sight, lost in the lush jungle, as peaceful as it can get.
