Thailand

  

In the past Thailand was named Siam. It is located in Southeast Asia, at the centre of the Indochina peninsula. Today tourism is a very important economic source. It is also the largest rice exporter in the world. The capital is Bangkok. It is one of the most important commercial centers in Southeast Asia. It has more than 400 decorated temples and six universities. It is named “Venice of the East” because of its numerous canals. Here there are images taken in summer 2011. In July takes place the famous Buddhist Candles Festival (Khao Pansaa) in the Northeast of the country. Big candles are built and exhibited on carts during a parade. Do not miss the beautiful Grand Palace in Bangkok. It is the official residence of the Kings of Thailand. Just a little north of it there is Wat Mahathat, an ancient Buddhist temple: it was founded in the 18th century. Today it is a center of monastic learning. In the northeastern part of the country there is the famous Phanom Rung. It is a Khmer temple complex. It is set on the rim of an extinct volcano. There are also pictures of people dressed in typical Thailand clothes. The more peculiar snaps are about Kaian women. This is a Tibeto-Burman tribe which lives in Northern Thailand. The women wear brass coils around their neck: they are named giraffe women. Wat Mahathat is one of the 10 royal temples of the highest class. It was situated between the Grand Palace and Front Palace, the residence of the vice-king. One of the most important universities in Thailand is located inside the temple. Inside this folder there are pictures taken in Laos and Cambodia, too. They are located in Southeast Asia. The capital of Laos is Vientiane. The country is crossed by Mekong river. It is covered by mountains and forests. The climate is tropical and characterized by monsoon. The shots about Cambodia are about Banlung, a region close to Thailand borders: it is characterized by beautiful waterfall.
