02-03-2016 – Room at PGS Hotels 360°

This hotel is from a Russian company. I didn’t know that and thats ok. The style of the hotel is how you see some interiors in Russian buildings as well (Never been their, but saw some images). Lots of Russian visitors here and Scandinavian people. The Russians are loud, hard talking, smashing the doors. I cannot say if thats normal for their culture but when you in bed and you hear many sounds in the hallway its annoying. After 23:30-00:00 is almost quiet.

The hotel is clean! And its 5-10min walk from the beach. There is a little swimming pool so when you want cool down at the end of the day. After i went to the beach i goto the pool, lay in shadows and relax then go upstairs to get a shower and put aftersun on my body.

I have a good signal of the WiFi, better then the WiFi connection in Novotel in Shanghai and Beijing… So im very happy because i can upload my images without timeouts!

My view is nice. At the highest floor and see the ocean. The sunset is always nice to see!!

01-03-2016 – Patong by Night

So this evening i went to the streets where it all happen, drinks, beer, shots, ladies, boy’s ,food on the streets … you name it and you will find it here. On every meter they try you to get into their bar and have some drinks. On every corner you see a group of ladies for a massage… At “The Paradise Complex” you see the lady boy’s, and the gays walking around.

Near the beach you will find many restaurants and food on the streets. This is always so difficult, because the food on streets is do delicious but mostly fish, chicken, beef, or something between, without vegetables… When you goto restaurant you will get everything, but its more expensive.

I have made some images only for a little impression what you can expect here:

22-02-2016 – Olympic Park Beijing

I went to the Olympic Park and visit the “Bird Nest”. This was the stadium where the opening of the Olympics in 2008 started. Its a impressive building, from the outside but also from the inside. Its huge, but feels small. I walked around and went also to the top to see the whole area. It was amazing to stand there, ok it’s not the premiere feeling of a opening, but still… We saw it on TV, we saw the firework and now im standing there.

22-02-2016 – Lama Temple and Temple of Heaven

After my Olympic Park visit i went too 2 temples: Lama Temple and Temple of heaven. Both very crowded with people. And seems i was the only white guy around there. The temples where colored so nice, and everywhere people pray, and give money to the buddha. When i was in temple of heaven 2 times people want on a photo with me, so i was the only white guy there, and a new attraction was born…

19-02-2016 – The old chinese city of Shanghai

I went to the old city of Shanghai… Was difficult the find it because all small streets are filled with people and little shops. You have to look very well to see the beauty of this location. This location was build in the “Ming Dynasty” by a rich family the Pan-clan. It has been destroyed several times: Opium War, Taiping Protest.

They renovated all and you can see this, because it look old but it isn’t. Its ok, now we have a idea how it was in that period.

18-02-2016 – Shanghai Sunset

I was at my hotel, little relaxing and i saw a very nice oppertunity to shoot Shanghai Skyline in a different way. The sun and sky was so nice, i shoot some images and this one is the best. I love the colors, and you can still see the buildings and know its Shanghai.

16-02-2016 – Hong Kong Skyline with clouds

At moment of my stay in Hong Kong the weather was not best. So i had to struggle with clouds and took me some time to create this image.

12-02-2016 – Po Lin-Monastery and Buddha

I went to the Ngong 360 cablecar terminal to see the Po Lin-Monastery and the Buddha. TIP: Go early, in morning. I waited almost 1,5 hours before i was in the cablecar. But it was worth it! The view was beautiful and you have a nice for view over the human made island for Hong Kong Airport. After a ride of 15-20minutes i reaced Po Lin-Monastery. The feeling was excellent. People pray everywhere or give a sign to the Buddha. I had my photography equipment with me and the stair was long, hard and suffering to get on top to see the Buddha. It was a huge statue and i felt so minuscule. After visiting this place i went back. Was so tired of all impressions i went directly to my Hotel. I took a shower and get some dinner.
