Bangkok Wat Pariwat
Wat Pariwat is an amazing temple in Bangkok. Nicknamed ''the David Bekcham Temple'' for the little representation of the soccer player that is among the decoration of the Buddhas basement on the 1st floor of the biggest building, today it should have the more accurate nickname of ''Marvel é Manga temple'' with its small hall in the square courtyard on which you will find several super heroes and comics characters among the statues decorating the outside. Superman, Batman, One piece, Mickey with breasts (?), Pinocchio, Popeye... just to lis a few of them. The little game when you visit this place is to find them. The interior is also interesting and among the murals you will see a portrait of Albert Einstein.

Note that there is a second hall under construction which will also be decorated with many characters. For my part, I find this aprt of the temple a lot more interesting than going to see the small golden statue of David Beckham on the 1st floor of the big building just next to the school but if you absolutely want to go there and the outside staircase is closed, you can enter on the ground floor and go to the left corner, there is a lift. Beckham is among decoration on the base of the Buddhas, on the right side, near the wall.
