Traveling to Asia was fantastic . I hope to go back again. Today I will share a few shots taken in Thailand and Vietnam. In the next post, I will share about Cambodia and Hong Kong.
Let’s start with Northern Thailand . We visited Chiang Mai and many little villages. We discovered temples and lovely architecture. We saw people working at markets. I took lots and lots of photos.
Driving in the countryside , we could see smoke as the farmers burn the land to help the future crops. We were traveling during the dry season but we have to assume there was no danger with the fires.
This is the White temple we can see in Chiang Rai. Very spectacular.
One week in this part of Thailand was not enough but we were very happy with our visit. We had to fly to Bangkok and then to Hanoi in Vietnam where we would meet our cycling group. We visited Hanoi and Halong Bay before starting our 11 days cycling days. We did around 450 km . With my photos you will get a sense of my trip in Vietnam. Motorbikes, bicycles, people everywhere…
We enjoyed the scenery on our way to Halong Bay. We did not have great weather in the Bay but it was a great experience to see the floating villages.
We had an educational tour as we cycled in different areas of Vietnam. The weather was not that great to start but it got warmer as we got in the southern part of the country. We learned so much and people were friendly .
In 2 weeks, I had been in 2 countries I did not know at all before I got there. Now I look back at the photos and I appreciate so much this experience. Asia is so different than America and for us it is an amazing discovery for all our senses. I even tried to learn a few words in thai and vietnamese !
Next week, you will see more photos taken in Cambodia and Hong Kong. Thanks for visiting.
