I spent a few days in the rugged landscapes of Thailand’s northernmost province. It was an organized trip, I was in good company, and we spent most days exploring the town, which sits quietly over silent hilltops and the flat alluvial plain of the Mae Kok River. We woke up to serene, misty vistas each morning and made our way to a local Karen village and neighboring temples glistening in the glow of the sun.
A visit to a local monkey and elephant school was part of our planned itinerary – It was my first visit and I vowed to myself that it would be my last.
In the evenings, we explored local night markets, sitting on low stools and benches tucking into hot soupy noodles sprinkled with chili flakes, a befitting meal as it got colder as the sun went down.
Time flew by, and here I am writing this post almost seven years later. It was my first attempt at film photography and I’m so glad to be able to share these photographs here. Welcome to PassageBlue and thank you for reading my very first post.
Want to see more of Thailand? Visit the wonderful, quiet island of Ko Lanta and swim through Emerald Cave, or head over to Ko Samui in the Gulf of Thailand, where you can go on day-long excursions to the beautiful island of Ko Nangyuan and the Angthong National Marine Park.
