Nong Han, San Sai District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
One of my favorite festivals in the world is the Loi Krathong / Yi Peng ‘festival of light’ in Thailand. Both occur at the same time and although differing slightly, both represent the cleansing of sins. Yi Peng takes place mainly in Chiang Mai in...

Tuk Tuks are open-air, colorful, motorized rickshaws that weave in and out of the streets of Bangkok and other Thai cities. They are usually similar in cost to a regular taxi but you should always bargain for the price before you get in to avoid...

Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Thailand
Long before Bangkok became the capital of Thailand, when Thailand was known as Siam, the ancient city of Ayuthaya sat as the powerful ruling empire. But as the world reshaped itself, Ayuthaya would fall to Burma and the capital of Siam would...

Wat Traimit Wittayarama, the Royal Temple in Bangkok, houses the Golden Buddha—the world's largest gold seated Buddha. At the top, a series of bells can be rung for good luck. These bells surround a giant metal kettle where you can throw...
หมู่ 9 Tambon Damnoen Saduak, Amphoe Damnoen Saduak, Chang Wat Ratchaburi 70130, Thailand
Even though I have been to Bangkok close to a dozen times, I never tire of the Floating market in Damnoen Saduak. Yes it is touristy but it is also a photographer's dream location- color, shapes, food, people, handicrafts. It has it all! Make sure...
Chao Phraya River, Thailand
Thanon Khao San, Khwaeng Talat Yot, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand
Busy day and night, Khao San Road is a backpacker haven with a down-and-dirty image. But it has evolved into a bustling market and nightlife destination for trendy residents and travelers. By day, you’ll find it great for all things...

Chiang Mai, Thailand
In the light of the sun Chiang Mai appears to hold many common big city characteristics. Fast cars, fast bikes, fast people. But at night, the city, slows down and unveils a lesser known side. Walking through it's streets, along beautifully lit...

Chiang Mai, Thailand
When you choose your accomodation in the old city of Chiang Mai, you just can not NOT take note of the thai-boxing fights in town... The trucks and cars with their high-end soundsystems promote the events all day and almost every restaurant or...
Mae Sa, Mae Rim District, Chiang Mai 50180, Thailand
This little boy was so curious and adorable. We went up the mountain of Doi Inthanon to Mae Sa and visited some locals. I was lucky to have a few moments with this little boy. I was changing my lens, when he decided to sit and watch.
Mae Taeng District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
A friend and I booked an elephant trek and whitewater rafting combo package while visiting the Chiang Mai in the northern section of Thailand. We used the company called Siam River Adventures and the day was well worth the money. They picked us up...
Samoeng Tai, Samoeng District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
It may not be your first thought as a snack, but the garlic and chili stir-fried critters at Warorot Market in Chiang Mai, Thailand are a delectable treat. A perfect snack to eat with friends, drinking a cold Singha beer. That said, I'd stick with...
