Thailand – The end of the month

Now I’ve posted almost everything I wanted to post about my month in Thailand. It was a blast, I must say! I really would like to go there again, travel to the nearby countries and discover a lot more. The question is: When? I really don’t know…I never was really outside of my comfort zone as much as in Thailand, being there on my own and trying to get by. Now I know I can handle it. To sum up the photography aspect of the journey: I think there is so much so discover still. I only saw small waterfalls unfortunately and I did not see too much of the non-touristy places. While being in these tourist populated cities, I still could capture a lot of great landscapes and street life. I am glad that I could combine a lot of fun (i.e. parties) and traditional activities (i.e. temples, discovering new corners of cities).

For now this is all about Thailand. Here are the the final photos of my trip back to Germany. I hope you like them as well! Plus, feel free to connect via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter 🙂

Thailand, Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, one of the cities I spend the most time in. First there was the overnight train from Ayutthaya and then a lot of temples. At one of the temples, the Doi Suthep, there were some kids wearing traditional clothes. This was of course a nice motive. The Problem however is that they were there for a reason: Tourism. The always wanted money in exchange for a photo. It is sad to see them only standing there and smiling only for that reason. I did take a shot without knowing this, but it’s just not genuine. I did not like it as much. I will just show another shot I took, where they were chilling on the steps to the temple. I felt this was more interesting than a fake smile.

In Chiang Mai I strolled around a lot and found a great hotel, where you had to go through a nice hallway with pictures on the walls. It was a bit curved, which build nice lines. Another nice place was the Wat Chedi Luang, which was one of the most beautiful temples I’ve seen in Thailand. There were also monks who sang a song and hummed. It was really great to experience this.

I hope you like the photos! Feel free to contact me via Twitter or visit my facebook page 🙂
