If you want to spend a tropical holiday somewhere in exotic Asia, it is most probably you’ll go to Thailand as a first choice. It has the real exoticism of a country having a traditional culture with high modern standards.
Thailand is the country of the many paradisiac islands where it is very easy to unwind and disconnect for a while. The country of wide Marine National Parcs that you can easily explore by snorkelling among the fascinating colourful fishes. The land of delicious tropical fresh fruits and coconuts, of energetic oil massages, of frangipani scent in the air, of spa, wellness and yoga centres, of a real relaxing Holiday.
Next to that, it is a Country with a traditional Spiritual identity, a country of Buddhism and inner exploration. Spend some time around the temple and you’ll get a real energy of Peace, apart from also understanding how Thai people live their faith in the modern days. Only for the architecture of the temples, anyways, it is worth a visit.
If you look for the hustle and bustle of the city, Bangkok will more than fulfill your expectations. Far away from the peacefulness of the islands, you’ll find everything that makes a modern big city attracting! Museums and art galleries, fancy restaurants and bars, vertiginous cityscapes, hectic night life, fashion, music and cultural events, cinemas, parcs…
Moreover, Bangkok has the charm of a metropole keeping a traditional identity alive with numerous temples and a few remaining wooden-house neighbourhoods, coexisting alongside contemporary skyscrapers. A city at the top of the modern technologies and industries in Asia but with a traditional touch.
This might surely be the result of a pride temper of the population and a strong attachement to their own singular culture -remaining of a powerful Empire in the past.
So, because of this cohabitation of Ultra-Modernism and Traditions, it is quite an interesting country for Travel Photography in general. It offers everything to the photographer : Landscape Photography with both beautiful islands in the South and tropical mountains in the North, Architecture Photography with the beautiful Buddhists temples, Street Photography in the cities -especially Bangkok- and Portraits everywhere in the country…
