    @AD, oh yeah Thailand has a lot of hindu references in their culture.

    @YC, the brand is Baiyoke, its a chain of hotels. Looks like they are some big chain of real estate guys in thailand. I like to have the date/time on the pix cos i can refer back to the times when i traveled. Since i travel so much, i sometimes lose track of the places i visited and the date/times when i visited.

    @IHM, Chirag, thanks 😀
