A Trip to Thailand ~ Destination Photography

I went to Thailand recently. Me, Ed and Schyler accompanied by our good friends Jamie and Nic boarded a plane and headed for Bangkok. We arrived just at the start of Songkran – the traditional New Year in which it appears most of the population, along with thousands of tourists, take to the streets and hurl buckets of water at each other. What a way to start your holiday!

We visited temples, saw big golden Buddhas, ate freshly caught fish on street corners, melted in the heat and lazed by the pool. Then we headed ¬†towards Phuket to Khao Lak where we fed elephants, went snorkling and saw a Ray and a big turtle and some other fancy fish. I ate my body weight in pad thai whilst watching the sun go down, drank Singha and Chang tiil the sun came up, swam in waterfalls, cooked thai food on the beach, had a massage and lazed by the sea. I also drank far too many marguerittas but that’s a whole other story. We traipsed the back streets of Phuket old town buying little traditional baked biscuits from a house where a gaggle of bare footed children were gathered round the television watching football, and perched atop cliffs staring at beautiful lush green landscapes.

Not toooooo shabby at all.

If you get the chance, go – if only for the food.

These were all shot on my trusty little XPRO1 which has returned to the UK a little battered but still in one piece.
