23-03-2016 – Bye Bye Patong Thailand

It’s a sad moment. I will leave Patong, Phuket now. Been here for 4 weeks, and within those week i had a good time. Seen lots of culture, lots of new things and most of the time see the beach and feel the sun shine on me… But the day is come that i will fly to Kuala Lumpur now,  new destination with new things to explore. I’m also gonna see a friend. Chat with him already sinds juli 2014 and now finally we gonna meet.

Phuket was nice, Patong was busy, lots of tourism but after couple of days you get used to it. Tried many different Thai Food! The people are very kind and will help you where they can do. Sometimes you see tourists who don’t have any respect and thats sad. The people here try to get most out of it for a great holiday for the visitor. And when they don’t get any respect back… makes me sad.

The local people i know now, woman who makes every day a fruit shake at the beach, a guy who makes pancakes with fruit, The guys from the parasol and matt. Called them the 100b guys. A Parasol was 100Bath. Then the 2 friendly persons from the restaurantl.  The helpers in FamilyMart. Also the guy from Pharmacy who take me inside at moment i got a blackout on the streets and give me the medicine so im feel great day later already! Thanks for that! Finally… the massage guys. After 4 days told them all i’m gay and goto the gay massage ar “The Royal Paradise” complex. After that they make lot of funny jokes and still scream to me “MASSAGE” with a big smile.

I will gonna miss you all, and all of you asked me if i will come back… After writing this blog i have feeling that it will happen for sure. Thailand, you people have taken my heart and give me a wonderful time

ขอบคุณ (Thanks YOU!)

21-03-2016 – Crab on beach

I walked yesterday morning on the beach, as every morning … Always see tiny crabs running for their life into their holes in the sand. But yesterday saw a crab running to the water, and when the sand is soft he hide himself into the sand. A man walked by and stand his feet directly on the spot where this little crab was hiding himself.

The crab wont come back on surface… At that point i’m was thinking: How many little crabs are hiding for us in the sand, and will die because people walk on the sand as well. Poor little creatures, they try to survive but don’t know that will die anyway. Or they have luck and nobody will stand on the same spot so the crab can go back into the sea when its safe….

17-03-2016 – James Bond Island

In 1974 the James Bond movie “Man with golden gun” was filmed here. Now a touristic chaos!. But when you look around and find a good spot you can make some nice images and have the feeling you’re alone there. Check for yourself:

17-03-2016 – Muslim Village

Very nice fishing village build on stilts by Indonesian fishermen. Now a touristic attraction. It was nice to see, but not that spectacular.

07-03-2016 – Food poisoning

Its happend…. got food poisoning. Damn what a hell. Spuw and diarrhea … Sleep al day and try to drink water all the time but my body says no…. And spit it out again. After a long sleep i tried it again, yes the water was accepted! Now i have to go out for some food… Went out to “Familymart” but there it goes badly wrong. Saw stars, saw black and when i went outside i got my “blackout”. A pharmacy worker saw it happen en took me inside. Directly he take all the medicine i needed. Explain everything and advised me what to eat.

I went to the restaurant next to pharmacy and got some soup. But my body says no again. I felt horrible again and took the soup with me to my room. Again went to sleep. Today i was planning for excursion but im not going. Feel to weak. Hope this all will end soon, so i can enjoy my stay in Patong…

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!!

02-03-2016 – Patong Beach, Thailand 360°

So finally have a nice 360° image of the beach of Patong. You see its not crowed with people. Most of the tourists here are Russian and People from Scandinavian. Sometimes you hear French and i didn’t hear any Dutch.

Every day i goto the beach for some hours and rent a bed include a parasol for 100 Bath (2,60 euro) for a whole day. Around 13:00 i walk to the boulevard and there are the street food motorbikes again. Buy some nice lunch an walk back. Have a nice view with nice food and even more nice weather. Even Patong is very touristic its nice.

Maybe i will move to Kata Beach for 1 week, seems a beautifull beach as well and always good to see other locations.

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…

21-02-2016 – Great Wall China

Today i went to Great Wall of China. This is the longest wall ever made by humans. Total length around 10.000km.It was a long journey to get there by bus. I was happy that i did a excursion otherwise i wasn’t able to find it my own and public transport. At this period of the year it was the best. Less people around so have some nice images created. After we went back in the hotel i had a dinner with a couple from Norway. Was a nice conversation and in meanwhile we ordered some delicious food in the upper floor of a shopping mall!

21-02-2016 – Shanghai to Beijing

This morning went to Shanghai Railway Station to take the High-Speed train to Beijing. The ride was perfect. I bought a 1st class ticket and had almost my own cabin haha. The train will stop several times between Shanghai and Beijing and the whole journey took 7 hours. I shoot some images of the locations and now you have a little impression what i saw the whole day.

A cup of coffee cost 2,- euro, so thats normal. After u arrived at Beijing South a bought a metro card. When you know the metro system in other big cities, then every metro in every city is easy. Sometimes you have to ask something. There was a short part of the route with a old part of metro. So no signs, no map, nothing. I had to ask for it.

After i arrive at my hotel i booked my excursion to Great wall, costs 39,- euro. Pickup from hotel to Great wall, a guide, and when i arrive at Great Wall i will use a cablecar to get higher in te mountains. But you will see the images later.

Now below you can see some images i took in the train. Ohh im so happy with my Nikon 24-70mm f2.8. The train had a speed of 305km/hour. And all my images are sharp 😀

19-02-2016 – Financial Area Lujiazui
