Trip to Rayong's Gulf Coast


This past weekend I took a trip to the Thai Gulf Coast in the Rayong Province.  I have changed my blogging style a bit and posted a few blogs during my trip and added more photos within the blogs.  I created the video below with a mix of photos and videos taken on the way.

I saw this hover boarding for the first time at Mae Phim Beach in Rayong Thailand and I thought I would share here. The photos and video was taken after dusk, the sun had set giving the hover-boarder a shadowy look. READ MORE

Ban Phe Fresh Fish Market


The Ban Phe Fresh Fish Market is worth a stop, especially if you are hungry!  The market is located next to the bus terminal, making it easy to find.  The market offers fresh seafood of all sorts found in the Thai Gulf as well as cooked and dried seafoods.  


The photo below show the meal i was able to prepare from a brief trip to the market!

Morning Alms at the Beach


Every morning without fail, the Buddhist Monks from the local temples take off on foot (barefoot) to collect alms of food for all the Temple Monks.  These Monks I caught on my camera in Rayong, walking along the beach road. Hope you enjoy! 


Rayong Boats


When traveling the coasts of Thailand I like to photo the boats along the coast.  The boats often range from half sunken fishing boats to fairly large yachts and sail boats.
