There Be Dragons In Thailand

There Be Dragons In Thailand

Well, at least this little China Town that is located in Pattaya. Since many Thais have Chinese ancestry it’s not unusual to see Chinese temples and dragons. I just happened to be in the tourist area that they call China Town and took this photo. I figured it would be a different pace from a boat. Sadly, the weather here hasn’t been conducive to photography. We are stuck between a monsoon in the south and a tropical storm in the…

Of Palms And Boats

Of Palms And Boats

Sticking with my boat fetish. This was taken further along on Jomtien Beach where other fishing boats pull their boats in. I just thought this one looked better in black and white since it brings out more of the hidden features of the boat and to be honest, there wasn’t much colour in the photo anyways. I will give double extra bonus points if anyone can find where I removed a pigeon from the photo with extreme prejudice. As I…

Colorful Fishing Boat

Colorful Fishing Boat

I’m back with my boat fetish I clearly have. This is one of the regular fishing boats the come in during the morning to sell their catch along Jomtien Beach. They sell both at the market and direct if you are up at that unholy hour of the morning. Considering I am not an early riser on a good day I can say I have never bought directly from them and, to be honest, I can always just go down…

Calm Day On Jomtien Beach

Calm Day On Jomtien Beach

I guess you would call it my home beach since I live in Jomtien. It’s calmer and cleaner than it’s sister beach known as Pattaya Beach which you could not pay me enough to swim in. Not that I swim in the water anyways. Lot’s do and Jomtien Beach is the popular local beach for local Thais that flock to it on the weekend. By local, I also mean those from Bangkok. I should point out I took this photo…

Antiques Shop In Naklua Thailand

Antiques Shop In Naklua Thailand

This one isn’t going to win any awards but I just like the funky way this shop looked when I went past it on my bike. I stopped and snapped a picture. There aren’t a lot of antique shops here in Thailand. Most stuff like that is sold in small stalls in markets around the country or through private connections. I didn’t go in as I’m not really interested in antiques but it did look cool. Enjoy.

Bridge Over Canal In Naklua

Bridge Over Canal In Naklua

This is a small canal running through a fishing village in Naklua, Thailand. This is the real Thailand off the tourist trail that most never see. There is nothing wrong with this area, in fact, it’s pretty standard for a middle-class Thai community. Just, that there isn’t a lot of infrastructure investments in these areas because it doesn’t bring in tourist revenue. Enjoy.
