Wat Arun: Temple of Dawn

I’d been coming and living in Thailand for almost three years now and I still hadn’t visited Wat Arun, otherwise known as Temple of Dawn, one of the oldest and most recognisable temples in Thailand.

Turtle Mountain

Turtle Mountain is probably not somewhere you have heard of, even if you have been to Bangkok. You may not have heard of it even if you have lived in Bangkok but I recently discovered Turtle Mountain and I want the whole world to know about it. Recently I posted a list of the top…

The Temples of Chiang Mai: Part 1

For the new year holidays I went to Chiang Mai for the first time…yes I know that seems like ages ago but I am not writing this blog in real-time, I am writing it in ‘when-I-can-be-bothered’ time. Chiang Mai (which translates to ‘New City’) was founded in 1294 by a man known as Mangrai (I…
