Here is my entry for Steemitworldmap’s Haveyoubeenhere 2019 contest. My four favorite travel posts of the year (2019) are posts resulting from my visits to Thailand. These four posts are the ones that elicited the most emotions for me as I went through my posts for the year.
In no particular order, here we go:
Celebrating Loi Krathong at Wat Saket in Bangkok, Thailand. Learning and participating in a culture’s religious festival at a historically significant venue is always awesome. This was also the evening I got to meet so many awesome people at TravelFeed’s meetup and subsequent ‘photowalk’. If any of y’all are reading this, I miss you awesome people! Lol. Here’s the link to the post.
Chiang Rai’s White Temple in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Re-reading this post makes me want to take a couple days out of my Feb. itinerary to revisit this temple. It’s that awesome! Very, very artistic impression of Thai Buddhism. If you’re into art, you gotta check this place out! Here’s the link to the post.
Dental Holiday to Chiang Mai, Thailand. This trip was really what kicked off my ‘want’ to keep blogging. It was also what started my fascination with Thailand. I never really thought about dental/medical holiday’s before but my bro (who’s a dentist) told me to check out Thailand’s dental scene as it’s very good and way cheaper than both the U.S. and Singapore (after I gave him the quotes I got from dentists in Sg). Here’s the link to the post.
Mega Plaza, Bangkok, Thailand. This post, for me, was about a near perfect vacation day! While walking around after visiting Wat Saket, I found this mall. It’s full of toys (r/c, airsoft, console etc), anime / collectible figures, camera gear and TCG’s (trading card games). Yes, I’m still a kid, haha! Here’s the link to the post.
Overall, as difficult as it was to pick a favorite, I have. It’s my dental holiday in Chiang Mai. Although a lengthy one, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to write about it in the first place, being somewhat self conscious of my teeth. In the end it, I felt I had to let people know of the options available for affordable dental care. I wouldn’t have know about it if no one told me about it, so I’m truly grateful for this day and age’s ease of sharing and to the people who do share. The icing on cake is the amount of support that this post had received which is still one of the highest I’ve ever gotten!
Thanks for viewing and best wishes!

Consider following me for updates to find not only my other (usually travel) bloopers, blunders and shenanigans but also photography related news/reviews and the occasional contest entry. I might even post a rant or two when I just can’t help myself, haha.
