Cape Town -  While we are aware of the protests that are taking place in Thailand, that won’t stop us from giving credit where it’s due.

Today’s Photo of the day by Instagram user @akitommy, is of the Wat Phra Kaew in Thailand's capital, Bangkok.
This magnificent temple is regarded as the most sacred in Thailand. The central building houses the statue of the Emerald Buddha.

Stunning right?
Have you also heard of Phuket, Thailand? Why not head there for a holiday, and also make plans to head over to Bangkok to also get a glimpse of the Emerald Buddha.
If you’re planning on staying in Phuket, why not stay at the Kata Palm Resort and Spa, where you could spend R11 758 per person sharing. Click here for more details of this great deal.
