    Rama 9 Royal Park

    When I don't know what to do on the weekend, I usually go to public parks such as QueenSirikit Park, Rama 9 Royal Park, Suanluang, Lumpini Park and Benjakiti Park. My favorite park is Rama 9 Royal Park or Suanluang-ror-9 (in Thai) where bangkokians can walk, relax and exercise. It offers possibilities for many activities - swimming, tennis, jogging, walking, riding, badminton, picnics and a playground for kids. It's located in the outskirts of Bangkok; Sukhumvit soi103 rd. Rama 9 Royal Park is the biggest park in Bangkok. And it built for celebrating my Majesty the King's 60th birthday. I love to shoot there and double colorful flowers with a view or people.

    Flea Market in Dituva village

    Only 20km from Klaipeda the west city of Lithuania there is a small village Dituva, which has one of the biggest Saturday flea market in the area. The market is located in the fields near the gardens of Dituva. It's seems that local people doesn't grow food on the fields, but use the field for selling second hand stuff. At the first glance you can't see the end of it, it should be about 1 square km.

    Wellesbourne Market

    You can find Wellesbourne Market a few miles from the M40, sandwiched in between Leamington Spa and Stratford. Locating it shouldn't be too much trouble, as it's held in a massive airfield which is taken over every Saturday by bargain-hunters. Wellesbourne is ideal for knock-off clothes, imported cosmetics, pic 'n' mix sweets, clocks with pictures of Elvis on the face and, well, not much else.

    Silvretta-Bielerhoehe track

    Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse-Bielerhoehe. The Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse is one of the most favored and beautiful mountain roads of the Austrian Alps. It connects the Montafon in Vorarlberg with the Paznauntal in Tyrol. The highest pint is Bielerhoehe in 2030 m sea level. There you can find lots of possibilities to spend your time. The simplest one is to sit down in the restaurant Silvrettasee with its amazing view over the Silvretta Lake. A very special one is to make a boat tour on the Silvretta Lake with the motorboat. It is Europe's one and only motorboat traffic in over 2000m sea level.

    Mount Batulao

    The first time I went to Mount Batulao was to celebrate my birthday on a September weekend with some friends. The picturesque jagged ridge of Mount Batulao looks like it has snow-capped peaks but it is actually just covered with cogon grass and its white plume-like flowers. We set up our tents on the first campsite that we saw that has a tree.

  • Hooters

    Hooters

    Known the world over for "aesthetically pleasing waitresses", Hooters is an institution in itself. Its expansion to Asia brought out a lot of curious customers including me, for a taste of what the chain has to offer. Although a far cry from the Hooters of American fame, they still manage to make the trip worthwhile as evidenced by the large number of foreigners and ex-pats sampling the local version. The signature hoola-hoops session in the middle of the store is still practiced and encouraged for the willing customers. The store specialty of Buffalo Wings are a treat in itself. If you don't fancy the Hooter ladies, you can always go here to enjoy and appreciate the delicious cuisine that they offer. Hooters is located in the middle of Clarke Quay.

  • Temples of Angkor

    Temples of Angkor

    It's one of the most beautiful complexes of ancient temples in Southeast Asia. The temples of Angkor, in Cambodia, built by the Khmer civilization between 802 and 1220 AD, represent one of humankind's most astonishing and enduring architectural achievements. From Angkor the Khmer kings ruled over a vast domain that reached from Vietnam to China to the Bay of Bengal. There are more than 100 stone temples in all. Angkor Wat honours the Hindu god Vishnu and is a symbolic representation of Hindu cosmology, consisting of an enormous temple symbolizing the mythic Mt. Meru, its five inter-nested rectangular walls and moats represent chains of mountains and the cosmic ocean. Then I can suggest the smiling Bayon, this is one of the most popular spots and, facing east, it is mostly visited in the morning. A good reason to visit in the afternoon! All those friendly faces of Avalokiteshvara certainly make you feel good.

    Maple Hill Park

    Maple Hill Park. It was a typical extremely hot summer day here in Southern California. My mom wanted to conserve energy so she turned off the air-conditioning in the middle of July!!! Who doesn't have their air-conditioning turned on in 110 degree Fahrenheit weather? Well, as a solution my older brother and sister and I went to Maple Hill Park in our huge neighborhood.

    Anadolu Evleri

    I was able to visit Gaziantep last month. The city has been named as the Paris of the Southeast recently. And of course with my LC-A it was fully a discovery. Old town, castle, incredible ‘zeugma’ the ancient city mosaics, excellent food and much more. On that trip my boss chose a little hotel called ‘Anatolian Houses’: the traditional old houses which are connected together with a common court yard, restored and furnished very stylishly.

    False Creek Ferries

    I love the ferries that operate on False Creek in the heart of Vancouver. Looking down on False Creek from one of the 3 bridges that connect Downtown Vancouver to Vancouver West they dart about the inlet like water boatmen skating on a pond. False Creek not only attracts the tourists and day-trippers that come to town for an amusing diversion on the water but it also is much loved by the local residents of this fabulous and unique city. False Creek is surrounded by some of the city's most enticing attractions.

    Kayak Racing

    I don't know how about you, but for me water is something special... Even when it rains, I feel somehow very different. But that's not the point of this story. I am going to tell you about the Kayak or Canoe boats in Lithuania. It is so popular, that you can not find any of Lithuanians who still haven't tried that.

    Holiday Resort in San Jhih

    It is an abandoned holiday resort in San Jhih, a mall town on the north coast of Taiwan. It has been abandoned for more then 20 years. People call it "UFO house". The man who supposedly designed the flying saucer room is an architect from Finland Matti Suuronen. He designed the flying saucer shape in 1968 (UFO). The glass fiber system house calls "Futuro". Bit later the same year, the production cost of Futuro became more expensive, as well as producer Polykem had not consummated the plan to develop Futuro, and sold the design idea right to many countries carelessly, therefore you can see Futuro in so many places around the world.

    Lavysas Lake

    This is my favorite and number one lake in Lithuania. All you need is a tent and sleeping bag. Don't forget to take some friends with you too. Then you can stay anywhere you want, the land next to the lake doesn't belong to anybody. Don't be afraid to go here with little children - lake is shoal.

    Rice terraces are common in Asia, but in the Philippines, you can find rice terraces built by the Ifugao tribe over 2000 years ago on steep slopes and at altitudes reaching up to 1500 meters.

    Top of the Stairs

    The top of the stairs directly south of Brigham Young University campus in Provo, UT. If you're in Provo, then it's easy to find BYU campus, just ask anyone. Go to the very south end and there are around 80 steps that lead to the street below. From right here at the top of these stairs are tons of amazing things to shoot! 1) the stairs themselves 2) if you're looking down the stairs and then you turn to your left, there is a great view of the Rocky Mountains 3) to your right is a pretty path that just continues downhill 4&5) straight above you is a guaranteed awesome shot of the sky because the sky in Utah is huge and full of fluffy clouds 6) go down a few steps and take a shot of the street in front-it's pretty in late afternoon with tons of shadows across the street. Any season is good to come: snowy winter, autumn with colorful leaves, sunny days all offer you cool photos. Don't walk around here at night though-it's dangerous and there's nothing to shoot!

    Seoul is maybe not such a giant city as Tokyo or Shanghai, but it is still an Asian metropolis of its own kind. This is best seen, when walking through the streets at night. It makes bling-bling and flashes everywhere, even in the remotest of the areas.

    Ponte JK

    The Ponte JK (Juscolino Kubitschek Bridge), crossing Paranoá Lake, is today one of the most famous points of Brasilia, the planned city built by President Juscelino Kubitschek to be the capital of Brazil. It was inaugurated in 2002 in his honor and in 2003 it was elected in a World International Congress on Bridges (yes, such a thing exists...) the most beautiful bridge of the world. Alexandre Chan and Mario Vila Verde are respectively the architect and the engineer responsible for its design and construction, which cost around 160 million reis (Brazilian money) (or 80 million American dollars today...). It is a beautiful place, really, because it seems to be so light (despite it weights more than 13 000 tons) and at night the illumination gives it a special aura, as if Brasilia was a huge modern metropolis.
