Our visas have run out and we have left Thailand. I posted many times about what we did in three short months (click here to read them), but there just wasn’t enough time to share everything.
Below are some interesting photos from areas that I never got a chance to blog about.
The Chinese Martyrs Memorial Museum in Mae Salong
The gateway to a very strange place in Mae Salong – a kitschy, unfinished resort themed around tea. Apparently the person building gave up halfway through (I never found out why) and now the half-finished structures have started falling into decay.
A teapot inside the complex I mentioned above. It was never finished, and perhaps it never will be.
Wat Santikhiri in Mae Salong
Yunnan style noodles in Mae Salong
Sunset in Tha Ton
Wat Tha Ton at dusk
Wat Mae Ai Luang was filled with painted depictions of Buddhist mythology. This one took us by surprise – look around Mr. Alligator’s neck.
Leaving Ko Pha ngan
Picking lychees in a little town somewhere between Phayao and Chiang Mai
The Cat Cafe in Bangkok. There is only one kitty in this photo, but there were several prancing about the enclosed cafe. They also sell crepe cake, so it’s win-win.
Inside Wat Phra Si Ratana Mahathat in Phitsanulok
Our couchsurfing hosts in Phitsanulok; Mark, Mint and Me-Ah

Camping with the buffalo in Chiang Dao
Ancient stupas built on the rocks near the caves in Chiang Dao
Depictions of hell at Wat Mae Aood in Chiang Dao. Freaky.
A seemingly abandoned wat near Doi Chiang Dao Mountain.
A rare sight in Thailand. The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Chanthaburi
Walking through no mans land. The area between the Thai and Cambodia borders at Phsar Prum.
