Similan Islands. Thailand.

Similan Islands. The paradise hidden in the middle of the sea northwest of Phuket, Thailand. Nine granite islands covered in tropical jungle, surrounded by crystal clear blue waters of Tropical Ocean. Reefs full of corals and fishes. One of the best world diving spots. Definitely worth of visit.

Erawan Shrine (San Phra Phrom), Bangkok. Thailand.

Erawan Shrine is one of the most popular Bangkok Shrines. Itís located in the middle of modern city. Hundreds of people are visiting Erawan Shrine daily, wishing for luck in business or love. They make small offerings such as food and drinks, all kinds of flowers and wooden elephants as well.

Chao Mae Tuptim Shrine, one of the most extraordinary spirit houses in Bangkok, Thailand. Thailand.

Besides Buddhist temples, you can find a number of small or large spirit houses and shrines to Hindu Gods and animist Gods in Bangkok. One of the less visited shrines is located on the grounds of the Nai Lert Bangkok Hotel (also known as Swissotel) on Wireless Road (Witthayu Road). Itís quite hard to find, but itís definitely worth of visit.

Wat Hua Lamphong, Bangkok, Thailand. Thailand.

Wat Hua Lamphong is nice Buddhist temple located on Rama 4, just beyond the entrance to Silom. The temple is one of the newer Wats in Bangkok and therefore rarely visited by tourists. The temple complex is nicely incorporated in modern buildings around.
