Wat Samphran Dragon Temple

I’ve visited some unusual temples in my time in Thailand but I don’t think I’ve seen any that rivals the uniqueness of Wat Samphran Dragon Temple.

A Trip To Thai Immigration (Again)

For anyone that has been reading this blog a while you’ll know that the last time I took a trip to the Thai Immigration office it was…a bit stressful.
