Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the second largest city of Thailand and is located in the mountains in the Northern part of the country. The Jungle is not far away from there!

The city is incredible: it looks like a European city with its surrounding walls and its narrow streets! Colorful temples almost everywhere remind you that you are still in a Buddhist country though!

New Sukhothai

The weather was rather good there… but it gets almost overflooded!

Nong Wiwat train station

the good thing by travelling with a camera is that you never get bored… even if your train stops for a couple of hours because of some problems with the engine!

Ayutthaya Historical Study Center

In Ayutthaya there are not only temples and ruins… but there is also a museum where you can learn a lot about history of Siam, its relations with other countries around the world and how people used to live in that time.

The museum was established in the late 1980’s with a full support of the Japanese government.

I liked the way the architect integrated traditional elements into the white and blue building!

 

The air-conditioned museum is great to escape from the sun for a while!
