Spirit in the House

Although most Thai are Buddhists, spirit worship takes its place beside the dominant religion. In front of homes and businesses are spirit houses, made to appease the spirits by providing it both shelter and votive offerings. Often the larger the home or business, the larger the spirit house. Here are some in the Sukhumvit area of Bangkok, home to big boutique hotels and Bangkok's expat community.
