Buddha, Golden Mount, Bangkok. This was the first temple I visited. On 17th October 2003 I flew out alone to Bangkok on a single ticket. I spent a week in in Bangkok sorting out a visa and tickets to Burma. There was an ASEAN summit and a visit from Presiden Bush at the same time so many sights were shut meaning I did very little sightseeing. I met an English chap, Matt, and we did a Tuk Tuk tour on the first day - including a visit to the Golden mount. I also bumped into an old school friend on my first night on Koh San Road - small world!
