Magnificent Beauty Of Ko Samet

Being a thalassophile, I make sure my every international trip includes the ocean, rivers and lakes. My love for water bodies took me to Koh Samet near Bangkok. Its tranquility, turquoise water and sandy beaches make it a perfect holiday destination. If you are in Bangkok and want to explore a nearby beach destination, then do not forget to visit Koh Samet, a three-hour journey from Bangkok. Sharing some images of my short getaway to this beautiful island.

Exploring Kanchanaburi’s Spectacular Guan Im Sutham Temple

While exploring Kanchanaburi’s famous death bridge on a hot and humid day, my eyes caught a huge and colorful temple, offering scenic beauty with peace. The Guan Im Sutham Temple, which sits on the banks of the Kwai River, is simply spectacular and breathtaking. When I reached there I noticed that I was the only tourist present in the temple premises.
This Chinese style Buddhist temple, which includes a number of Chinese and Buddhist themes, provides a glimpse of traditional Chinese culture such as the Chinese Zodiac.

The massive compound is replete with animal sculptures, dragons, gold coins and a large Chinese Goddess of Mercy statue. Besides, one can easily notice beautifully decorated pagodas and a gigantic totem pole.
A golden Buddha statue is the main attraction of the temple.
I recommend you to visit this temple along with the historical bridge.

A Relaxing Getaway In Hua Hin

Thailand’s Hua Hin is famous for its laid-back culture, something which even I felt when I landed there after a three-hour journey from Bangkok. I wanted to spend some quality time there but I had very little time on my hands to relax.

After enjoying Hua Hin’s famous sandy beaches, I headed to Khao Takiab, courtesy Google map. Khao Takiab is a small village quite famous for seaside restaurants and pretty beaches that include Hat Takiap, Suan Son and Khao Tao.

On top of Khao Takiab hill, one can enjoy monkey mountain or Chopstick hill where Wat Khao Lad temple is situated. It is popularly known as the monkey temple because many monkeys inhabit the place. On your way to the hill, you will come across a huge and impressive 20 metre high Buddha statue overlooking the sea. Using staircase one can easily reach the mountain.

The top of the mountain offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Gulf of Thailand. From Hua Hin, Khao Takiab can be easily and quickly reached. I hired a tuk tuk from the downtown Hua Hin to reach there. Have you been to Hua Hin ?
