Prehistoric Links. between Karon and Kata Beach, in Phuket, Thailand, you'll find a couple of dinosaurs, one on the roof of the Dino Bar and one welcoming you at the street entrance to Dino Golf. it is an interesting spectacle to find in a tropical paradise. various other dinosaurs can be found around the 18-hole mini golf course. great place to take the kids. after your round of golf, you can relax in the garden and order some drinks and food. #karonbeach #katabeach #phuket #thailand #minigolf #dinosaurs #prehistoric #golf #dinogolf #dinobar #paradise #wanderlust #tourismthailand #amazingthailand #thaitraveling #amzthld #unlimitedthailand #thailanddestiny #travelinthailand #lostinthailand #thailand_ig #thailandgram
🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Koh Samui’s Mummified Monk at Wat Khunaram is an unusual sight yet it offers a unique insight into Buddhist and Thai culture. The monk Luong Pordaeng died in 1973 in a seated meditative position, and ever since his body has been on display in an upright glass case at the temple. Remarkably, even more than 30 years on the monk’s body shows little sign of decay. For some visitors, having a dead man in full view might be a shocking sight, but for Thais it is something to reflect upon and revere. Far from being frightened by death, most Buddhist Thais are highly accepting of the end of life as the natural order of things and they view death as an opportunity to be reborn into a better place, one step closer to nirvana. There are other mummy monks on Samui and throughout Thailand, but Loung Pordang is among the most highly revered. Loung Pordang is said to have told his followers shortly before his death that if his body were to decompose he should be cremated, but if not then he wanted to be put on display as a visual reminder of the Buddha’s teachings. For Thais, both the life and death of Loung Pordang serves as an inspiration to 📌 follow the Buddhist precepts and walk the middle path.✅

Took the 0630H 3rd class train to Bangkok for just THB84. It's a great way to see the countryside. #Phetchburi #pechaburi #thailand #estancabigas #monochrome #mono
