During our backpacking trip we stayed a few nights in Ao Nang. We stayed in a small little hotel (The Ri) a kilometer or two from the beach. Instead of watching the sun go down in the sea in the evenings, we could see this mosque shift in different colors in the dark. Needless to say, I tried to capture most of the color combinations with my camera…
Quite a few of my photos from Thailand are of sunsets or long-tail boats. Some of them are of long-tail boats in the sunset. This one is from Nai Yang Beach. It used to be one of our favorite places in Thailand. But Nai Yang has changed the last few years and is not the same anymore. The sunsets are still rather nice though.
It was probably one of the hottest days during our visit in Phuket. But we were, strangely enough, rather tired of lying on the beach. Instead, we decided it was a good idea to sit in a hot taxi for an hour or so for a trip to the Big Buddha. It was worth it though. Except for the big one, we also found a couple of his friends.
To get some variety and a break from all the bathing, we took a trip to the Big Buddha. It felt like it was the hottest day of the year (which it probably wasn’t), but it was worth it. The view from the hilltop was rather nice and to capture it all (or actually only a part of it), I made this panorama.
