Horton Plains National Park is a lovely area with rich flora and fauna.
It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
When I think about Sri Lanka in general, the Horton Plains National Park somehow doesn’t fit to my image; of course it’s part of sri Lanka, but also something that you may not called as “Sri Lankan”. 😉
And, in the Horton, you’ll find a toilet with such a nice view; ok a bit cloudy… and yes, no glasses in this windows. 😉
Singapore is also quite mixed when we talk about religion. You’ll meet here people who practise Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Taoism, folk religion etc.; plus many non-religious people. And, I’ve never heard about any “religious problems” in Singapore… Have you?
Luang Prabang and its vicinity is an area in Laos that you should really visit!
The ancient town of Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; it’s a tourist place, but also quite real, at least that was my impression a few years ago. You can also enjoy Mekong River and nearby mountains.
The Asian Golden Triangle, i.e., area in Laos, Myanmar and Thailand is mostly known from drugs.
But there is rather a different reason why I don’t recommend people to visit it.
Look at this sad picture; in Laos Golden Triangle you can easily buy alcohol bottles with animals inside! There are e.g., snakes, scorpions or other also protected animals!
I’m showing you this picture to be aware of this;
because it’s a very negative thing!
I’ll continue the topic tomorrow.
Golden Triangle is an area where people used to grow opium, at the boarder or Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.
You can visit the place e.g., while being in Thailand, but I don’t really think it’s worth visiting…
Geysers nearby Chiang MaOn today’s picture you can see a small geyser, protected with a fence. There are some hot springs and geysers in Chiang Mai province. As in similar places around the world, locals boil eggs “in the geyser” and sell them to tourists. 🙂
Chiang Mai, with its nearby attractions, is one of the most interesting places for tourists in Thailand.
Of course, foreigners go to Bangkok or islands and it’s also fine, but I think Chiang Mai offers much more.
“Bridge on the River Kwai” is a title of a fictional British-American war film, that was based on the novel by Pierre Boulle. It has a very characteristic song that’s whistled in a movie several times. You can see that bridge in Thailand. Well, it may be nothing special, but I remember this song from my childhood, because my father was whistling it very often, so I really wanted to see that bridge. 🙂
Visiting floating markets is one of a must-do while being in Thailand.
Even it’s something very touristic, it’s still an interesting experience to see the market located on the boats, while being on a boat.
