This is a truly exciting and imaginative challenge for those who love photography. The Tourism Authority of Thailand is inviting photographers to enter their work into a competition; the objective is to produce an image that captures the enticing characteristics of this fascinating kingdom. In doing so, they will be raising awareness of Thai lifestyle and the importance of preserving it for years to come.
Photography enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice in finding themes for their photographs. Thailand has so much to offer in terms of scenery due to its magnificent coastlines, stunning countryside and fantastic architecture. Also, the bustling cities and traditional Thai markets will give many opportunities to experience and capture images of the real Thailand.
Bangkok alone will stimulate the imagination due to its diverse mix of culture and architecture. There are a multitude of exotic temples, which emphasize Thailand’s strong Buddhist history. One of the most spectacular is the Wat Pho temple, also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha due to its enormous statue of a reclining Buddha, which measures 46 metres long and is decorated with gold leaf. The regal Grand Palace, the major architectural symbol of the Thai Royal Family, is also a dramatic and awe inspiring sight. Its vibrantly coloured roof and gleaming spires are regarded by some as the most highly recognized architectural landmark of the nation.
In contrast, the winding Chao Phraya River provides ample opportunity to see traditional Thai life from the water. In the past, residents of Bangkok usually settled by the river, and many traditional ways of life are still evident amongst those who continue to live there. It is also possible to find floating markets along some of the remaining canals connected to the river.
Those photographers seeking inspiration from nature could visit some of the rural provinces of Thailand. For instance, Krabi has a beautiful coastline with dramatic limestone cliffs towering over the crystal-clear, turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea. The Thung Teao Forest Natural Park is another area of outstanding natural beauty. This unusual, lowland forest is a superb place to spot rare animals and plant species, together with absorbing the beautiful surroundings around the amazing crystal lagoon. There are also some stunning beaches in Krabi, such as those at Ao Nang, Railay and Ton Sai.
Krabi can also boast an excellent selection of accommodation for those searching this beautiful province for the perfect picture. For example, Krabi Riviera Co Ltd provides an outstanding range of villas that are ideal for couples, families or groups of friends. All villas offer 5 star comfort, including private swimming pools, a personal concierge service, and some first-rate complimentary services.
Entries for the competition must be submitted by 30 June, 2013. Therefore, those wishing to enter should not delay in visiting this enticing country and sampling the abundance of colourful, photographic opportunities it has to offer.
