Big Buddha Toenails Wat

Yep, sure was one BIG budda. The "museums" are advertised as, "Local textile manufacturing demonstration" (selling cheap polyester print shirts and sarongs) or "Gems and jewelry exposition" (selling low-grade gems, often just colored glass.) or "Cultural Center" (selling ultra-cheap sub-standard tourist fare trinkets.) Once you've been in-country a while, you start to see the same "unique", "hand crafted" and "one-of-a-kind" trinkets everywhere.
