The ‘Best of Thailand’ photo gallery below is a collection of images I took in March-June 2013 while traveling in Thailand. In just over 6 weeks of travel, I explored the entire country: my first stint led me to Bangkok and south to the Thai islands of Koh Lanta, Koh Kradan, and Ko Phi Phi, where my main camera broke.

The second I left the Canon HQ in Silom, Bangkok, I embarked on a little photo excursion. It was my 2nd of 3 stints in this city and I’d just been reunited with my newly-fixed  which had been in the Canon repair shop for 6 weeks while I was busy traversing Cambodia and Vietnam.

There are 400+ temples (or wats, as they’re called in Thailand) in and around Bangkok. It’s damn near impossible to go anywhere in the city without seeing at least part of a temple sticking out from behind a wall or building.

Of the 4 weekend days I’ve spent in Bangkok, I’ve gone to the Chatuchak Weekend Market on 3 of them:

  • First time – went for a ‘look-see’ to scope things out, sample the snacks, and take note of things I might want to buy next time (the idea being to return after my upcoming jaunt through Southern Thailand, so I wouldn’t have to carry around extra crap for those couple of weeks)
  • Second time – went with some boys and didn’t want to drag them along to do some girl shopping
  • Third time – went on my own to finally do said shopping!

After crossing 2 major bucket list* items off in Nepal and India (the EBC trek and Holi), how would Thailand stack up in terms of doing amazing, dream-achieving things?

Turns out, well – very VERY well, as future blog posts will reveal ;)

For starters: I’ve long been harboring this dream of someday experiencing an infinity pool.
