25 photos touring to Thailand
Awesome Photos " is a contribution to my new serial. See also 22 Awesome photos of Italy and 23 Awesome photos of Great Britain! Many of you may know that I was in Thailand for about 3 week at the beginning of this year. But right now these photos have to be enough to get me (and you) back there:
Wat Phra That Doi Suthep lies on a hill overlooking the town of Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand. Shrouded in lush red and reflecting gold, this was definitely one of the most striking temples I attended in Thailand. Frequently described as the most wonderful in Thailand, this one on the Araay Penninsula has certainly impressed me.
Some of my favourite photos of Thailand were taken on the long tail boat, the blue waters and the high lime stone isles. Situated near the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Wat Pho is known for its huge lying Buddha. After that I volunteered in the Elephant Nature Park in the north of Thailand for one year.
There I got to know these wonderful animals at first hand and developed a deep sense of affection and esteem for them - and learned what they are going through in other parts of Thailand. Don't look further than the small bamboo isle ('and go to the other end of the isle from the bathing area to enjoy such a view).
Situated on the site of the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Wat Phra Kaew (the temple of the Emerald Buddha) is completely breathtaking. In the mornings priests come down from the hill to gather sacrifices in the town Chiang Mai. If you stay overnight in Ao Nang or Krabi, you can only reach the railway island by long-tailer.
The Wat Pha Lat is located in the jungles at the side of the Doi Suthep hill in Chiang Mai. When I was there, this quiet place was almost empty and therefore so much more lovely. Saw these colourful praying bands at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai.
It wasn't that this place needed more paint to make it pretty, but I really liked her. Phi Phi Phi Islands on Thailand's Andaman Sea shores were ravaged by a tidal wave 10 years ago. While snorkelling in this wonderful cove we saw many colourful snorkelling spots. Actually, I used to hate to visit Monkey Beach - visitors gave the impoverished creatures sacks of crisps and tins of Coca-Cola, which made me sickened.
And I was just as upset about the ape in that picture. This is undeniable - even on a completely clear sunny days Thailand can create beautiful sundowns. On the other hand, is a sundown on the shore EVERYTHING awful? This is a view of some little gold Buddha to whom you can say a prayer in Wat Phra That Doi Suthep.
I' ve already said that I signed up voluntarily in an Elephants Reserve in Thailand. Although today this cove is mostly populated by visitors who want to see where Leonardo DiCaprio made the film "The Beach", it is still definitely deserving a visit. Here is another photo of Wat Pha Lat on the hillside in Chiang Mai.
My last few outings were in Thailand at the Koh Lanta beaches. Thailand's royal family live in an extensive palatial building in Bangkok. It is a common scenery on the beaches of Stationay - long tail vessels line up to transport visitors to and from the coast. He' guarding one of the gateways to the Grand Pala.
Well-known for its calcareous rocks, it is particularly loved by mountaineers. but I took a lot of photos. If you are serious about your purchases or just want to see the mess that distinguishes Bangkok, a visit to the Chatuchak Weekend Market is an essential one.
