Those who are yet to visit Chiang Mai, this month would be a perfect time to visit the famous city in northern Thailand! Allow us to show you why in this installment of Explore!
Located 700 kilometers north of Bangkok, the city of Chiang Mai, the capital of the province of the same name, is the biggest and most culturally important city in the northern Thailand. It’s one of the country’s most visited tourist destinations, famous for its nature adventures, hundreds of ornate Buddhist temples called wat, and fascinating festivals.
Among the best known of these festivals held in Chiang Mai is the Songkran Water Festival, Thailand’s traditional New Year’s Day celebration (the city is known for having the biggest and most famous Songkran events) set to happen on April 13 – 15 this year; and Loi Krathong/Yi Peng wherein buoyant decorations called krathong are floated on the river and sky lanterns called khom loi are lit and launched in the air.

There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day.

For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
