Dear M and M,
King Power is the team who runs ‘duty free’ business in Thailand, so they are huge in term of revenue and I can only assume profitability. They have built this huge store selling duty free goods right in the heart of the city, and it is one of the most popular places for Thais before travelling aboard.
The process is quite simple, once you have booked your flight ticket, you can go to this store and purchase your goods, duty free, but you have to show your ticket. However most of your purchases will have to be picked up after you’ve passed immigration at the airport, before you fly out to your destination.
Anyway, I don’t shop, ever! Well apart for cameras and food of course :) While the rest were running around ticking off the list, I was free to have a wander around. Moving away from the retail area, it is quite a beautiful building with many interesting areas.
Luckily for me, I can only assume that I had wandered into an exhibition area where several Buddha's image were on display. The style of each image depends on the time in history and the area the image was cast, so it was an amazing finds to see different style from different period on display here, today was a great day.
