Corner View #5 – The Great Outdoors.

This week’s theme is the “Great Outdoors”. 

And Thailand is truly amazing for the outdoors.  One moment you’re caught up in the modern metropolis and the next your experiencing old-world splendor.  It’s entirely up to you, whatever your fancy is,  it’s here.

I’m an island girl and I love the beach, the water and so it’s so obvious for me to share a photo of one of sandy beaches that we’ve visited.  And there are many here in Thailand, but there is also the mountains which are equally beautiful and peaceful.  And then there are the temples and ancient ruins of which you must visit if ever you come to Thailand.

So here are my pictures of the great outdoors of Siam (Thailand).

la lune dans le ciel said...

I am delighted to come and make a small tour in Thailand at the end of the evening, here in france.
I do not know your country but I learn a little more thanks to you!

Francesca said...

My geography feels very shaky looking at your photos: I can't understand how far apart these places are, but they sure are all amazing. The nature, the architecture and above those ruins, and what remained of that statue: still meditating.

caitlin said...

So cool. I would love to ride an elephant and I would have no problem living in such a cool city or by that beach. Gorgeous.

trinsch said...

i love thailand! i have visited a few times. in the north and the south with all it's beautiful islands. i think thailand is an amazing place to travel. it's fairly easy to get around, there are smiles, laughter and helpful people, yet it is still unique. and then there's the food. the food alone makes me want to live in thailand.

skymring said...

well, this has got to be the most exotic outdoors so far! (to me, anyway)

nicola said...

beautiful! my parents just returned from a trip that included thailand. an enviable holiday, indeed.
