Sunrise over The Forest

One of the benefits of sleeping in a tent with just a sleeping bag to separate you from the hard surface is that it makes it easy to get up before the sun does. At 5 am the sky was black. The first photo was taken at 5:19. The second one 20 minutes later at 5:39.

Welu Wetlands, Chanthaburi, Thailand

Welu Wetlands, Chanthaburi, Thailand

Last weekend we went on a trip to the wetlands around the mouth of the Welu river in Chanthaburi (จันทบุรี) province, on the border with Trat (ตราด) province. Tourist facilities in this small natural park were Spartan. But the scenery was well worth it. Koh Chang (เกาะช้าง), a popular tourist destination, is about 40 km away as the crow flies. You can see the island at the bottom of the map.

Google recently added detailed Thai street maps to Google Maps. In the process, they changed all the place names into Thai script. I didn’t see an option to change them back into Latin script, which would obviously be handy for tourists.
