Some images of ChiangMai

Was bored with doing my regular stuff so decided to start on some of the photos taken in ChiangMai :)

Little monk

Primarily, the main religion in Thailand is Buddhism and there's definitely no lack of seeing monks in the streets. Was very blessed to have caught this young monk on the red bus-like transport on his way to his 'wat' or temple on the last day of our trip (we didn't encounter any in the 1st few days, can you believe that?)

Imperial MaePing Hotel

An exterior shot of our hotel. Quite a popular choice amongst tourist as it's about 7 mins from the famous ChiangMai Night bazaar. Although there's other hotels that offer the same hotel room rates that's even closer to the bazaar, we decided on this as it was just far enough from the noise but near enough to pop down for a walk in the evening.

Life on the street

Boatman along Ping River

We went for a mini golf course game near River Ping (very cheap - only THB120 per person or SGD$5.00 per game). After the game (18 holes are a lot), we went for a quick drink before we head back to the hotel and the night bazaar, caught this boatman making his way down the river. Was very blessed once again as it was a rare sight even for locals. Waited for some time for more boatmen to appear so to get variety but only this one came and went.

Old lady of the BanHuay Numrim Tribal Village

I think the highlight of our trip was this One Day trekking tour we signed up for fun. It started with this rural hike (about 45mins up hill) towards this tribal village, we had to cross this really old rickerty bamboo bridge, quite an experience. The hike up was quite tiring as it's really steep at certain areas and given the afternoon weather, it zaps quite a lot of energy. Anyway, the village is situated in the hilltops and mostly the young children and ladies stay behind while the men goes down to the town to work.

I love her features, her lines that tell you her life. Think this is one of my better attempts in photojournalistic portraits.

Okie, will update more in the next posting ^.^

nice!! the little monk photo is impressive. Thaks for sharing

great portrait of the lady.

thanks! :)

Will be posting more later so stay tuned.

Good stuff.... and welcome back!
