Follow our blog @travels.offtrack 😊 ・・・ Throwback – Koh Chang, the light blue place ---------------------------------------------------------- Piers and jetties always attract the eye, especially empty ones with no signs. What type of boat comes here? What is its destination? Maybe a boat from a magical realm or from a scene in an action movie. Jetties always have a sense of promise, or hope or escape. Always a sense of future. This one is a substancial construction in the middle of nowhere in Koh Chang. Probably part of a development that didn't get built yet. Meanwhile it can be a gateway to our dreams. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #Thailand #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack ---------------------------------------------------------- Photography: @yannis.karalis_photography Story:@ealesmichael #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #budha #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #greecelover_gr #nikonphotographer #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge

・・・ 11/01/17 - Traditional way of selling ---------------------------------------------------------- Alongside the new glossy buildings of Bangkok are street sellers, very important to locals. Many are various types of food, and favourites include noodle soup, pad thai, rice dishes, fruit, fried insects, and many sweet dishes. Others include shoe menders, cosmetics and lottery tickets. The means of selling varies from well kitted out carts and stalls to two baskets suspended from a bamboo pole as here. As far as we have experienced food has been fresh and delicious, and often better than restaurants. Sellers bring life to the streets and a cheaper option to modern city life.

・・・ 10/01/17 - China town ---------------------------------------------------------- Located in the Yaowarat district this is one of the most traditional area of Bangkok and is in fact the oldest.There was a Chinese trading community before Bangkok became the capital in 1782. Like many diaspora communities, it is probably more traditional than modern China. It is a delight to all the senses especially the distinctive colours and smells. The shop houses have their original wooden fittings of dark wood which gives a timeless feel. The merchandise is often stored in wooden draws or big pots. It is buzzing with trade, spice shops with sacks full of exotic smells, herb and tea shops, coffin makers, endless markets and many gold shops. Also there are second hand stalls selling old stuff for next to nothing. So different to the air conditioned shopping malls taking over central Bangkok. The many Chinese street signs and the appartment blocks covered in washing give the feel of Hong Kong. In the side streets are many old houses like the one pictured today, which still have a feel of an unbroken link to the past.

Photography: @yannis.karalis_photography Story: @ealesmichael Travel Organiser: @nucha_ngamsom ・・・ At the end of the monsoon - 09/01/17 ---------------------------------------------------------- We have had a week of monsoon rain both in the south of Thailand and until today in Bangkok. As everybody will tell you, this should be the dry season, but every year the rain encroaches more, this year with severe flooding, and many cancelled flights, trains and buses. But at least the rain is not the hanging grey of Europe and brings out unexpected colours and smells, flowers you have never seen before, and in the hot weather not uncomfortable to walk in. In fact like taking a refreshing shower. Rain also changes people's relationships as people huddle together, and as the rain subsides people again venture out into a clean and refreshed world. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #Thailand #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack ---------------------------------------------------------- #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #budha #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #greecelover_gr #nikonphotographer #nikonlove #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand

2/01/17 – Say Cheese ---------------------------------------------------- Thailand is often called The Land of Smiles. The boatman here has a great smile - he seems to be proud of his teeth. But the Thai smile (yim in Thai) has a greater set of meanings than the European one, and you can soon spot different ones. According to Working With The Thais: A Guide to Managing in Thailand by Henry Holmes and Suchada Tangtongtavy, the ‘top 13’ identified Thai Smiles are: 1. Yim thang nam taa: The “I’m so happy” smile. 2. Yim thak thaai: The “polite” smile for someone you barely know. 3. Yim cheun chom: The “I admire you” smile. 4. Fuen Yim: The stiff smile, also known as the “I should laugh at the joke though it’s not funny” smile. 5. Yim mee lessanai: The smile which masks something wicked in your mind. 6. Yim yaw: The “I told you so” smile. 7. Yim yae-yae: The “I know things look pretty bad but there’s no point in crying over spilt milk” smile. 8. Yim sao: The sad smile. 9. Yim haeng: The dry smile, also known as the “I know I owe you the money but I don’t have it” smile. 10. Yim thak thaan: The “I disagree with you” smile, also known as the “You can go ahead and propose it but your idea’s no good” smile. 11. Yim cheua-cheuan: The “I am the winner” smile. 12. Yim soo: “smiling in the face of an impossible struggle” smile. 13. Yim mai awk: The “I’m trying to smile but can’t” smile. A few of these could be a candidate for The Hotel Receptionist Smile, "I can't find your booking but if I smile you might leave and go to another hotel" or the "I have no idea what to do" smile. The boatman's smile was the genuine happy one and it lit us up. ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com / www.travelsofftrack.com #Thailand #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #budha #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #greecelover_gr #nikonphotographer #nikonlove #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge #whpimitation @500px

26/12/16 - Throwback ---------------------------------------------------------- The sheer commercialisation of Phuket made us think back to the simplicity of Salakphet on Koh Chang. On the beaches of Phuket there is not much of real Thai life left. Locals don't have the usual smiles. Just a barrage of "Welcome, welcome", "Where you go?", "You want to buy?". Prices here are at least 30% higher than elsewhere. Even Thais are being driven out by cheaper workers from Burma and Cambodia. Only Phuket Town where we stayed has a feeling of normality. It is interesting to see what happens when 'money' becomes the overriding purpose of a place rather than finding a balanced way of living. I am sure the fishing village has a lot to teach us. ————————————————— Photo: @yannis.karalis_photography Writter: @ealesmichael Travel organiser: @nucha_ngamsom ---------------------------------------------------------- read more on: www.karalisphoto.com ---------------------------------------------------------- #Thailand #yanniskaralis_photography #travelsofftrack #thailandofftrack ---------------------------------------------------------- #travel #traveller #instalifo #athensvoice #500px #hubs_united #bbcearth #earthfocus #natgeo #earthonlocation #budha #nikonphotography #nikonphotographers #nikonphoto #nikonnofilter #nikonofficials #nikoncamera #patong #nikonphotographer #nikonlove #nikon #earthpix #vsco #goprothailand #goprothchallenge #phuket @500px @lifomag
