Explore the cultural side of Thailand at the Buddhist Monastery of Wat Bang Phra, located in the Nakhon Chaisi District. Located around 50 kilometers from Bangkok, this monastery is well connected to the city through various forms of travel. The name of the monastery translates to “The Monastery of Riverbank Buddha Image”, and is an iconic landmark, which one would associate closely with Thailand. People line up at the monastery to get a Tatoos made, a tradition of the place. You will find a large wall filled with tattoo designs, and a monk uses a single long needle to masterfully make the design on you. Once done, the tattoo is blessed by the monk and you’re left with memorabilia forever.
