I’m busy with the last few weeks of the semester, and getting excited to be heading to Thailand for a winter of nice temps and sunshine. For week 203 of Travel Photo Thursday, I am sharing a few of my favorite photos from past visits to the “Land of Smiles”.
Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Did you know that Chiang Mai has over 300 temples? Love this shot that I took of a chedi at one of the temples in the old city. I cannot remember the name of the temple, but I know exactly where it is in my mind!
Maka Bucha Day, 2014…One of the most important Buddhist holidays, and most Buddhist will go to the temple to make merit. The monks at Wat Phan Tao in Chiang Mai always have a candle lighting ceremony, and encourage visitors to attend. The holiday is based on the lunar calendar, and this coming year will be celebrated on March 4th. If you are in Chiang Mai on that date, don’t miss it!
Can’t forget Thailand’s gorgeous beaches…
Southern Thailand… We stopped at this beach during a snorkeling trip. I’m not even sure it has a name, but is located down south in Krabi.
A favorite island get away…Koh Lanta…
Sunset on Ao Nang Beach, Krabi, Thailand
I don’t always visit Bangkok when I’m in Thailand, but it is a city that I have come to know and like over of the years.
Temple of the Emerald Buddha…
And finally a Bangkok sunset…
Personally, I like Thailand any time of the year. However, if you want to beat the humidity, and the rainy season, the best time to visit is between October and April. If you enjoy cooler temps, Chiang Mai is a perfect winter getaway. Particularly, December and January, you’ll find the days pleasantly hot (no humidity), and the evenings and early morning very cool. I almost never use my A/C. December thru March is the busy season anywhere in the Kingdom. Be sure to book early!
