Thailand was the first country I visited in the far east. It has a rich culture of temples. Bangkok is its capital.

Riding on Elephants.
Elephants in the water..
An more of them getting wet..
Here I was allowed to sit in fornt. I liked this a lot better since the normal rider used an axe to drive the Elephants. Therefore for me this was a once in a lifetime experience as I do not like the cruel way these Elephants are raised.
To my opinion Elephants are supposed to live in the wild like in Africa...But for once it was a fun ride.
Erawan Falls, Where little fish tickle you. These falls were also used during the Birma war, as these fish clen the wounds. Its a good swim here, but quite a strange feeling with the fish eating the salt of your body.
