Bhuping Palace with Music

This is a follow up to my previous post on the Bhuping Palace in northern Thailand near Chiang Mai. Thailand November 2012 We followed signs along a path through ferns and trees and emerged by a huge water feature with fountains. The building on the hill is one of two guest houses with a definite Alpine look to it. There was music playing around the water; I read somewhere  that the pieces being played had been composed by the King of Thailand. However, I cannot find any confirmation of that on line. Just as we arrived, clouds moved in at our level creating a very atmospheric photo opportunity.

As we walked down from the King’s water feature, we came across this carving, complete with elephants emerging from the jungle. Thailand November 2012 Thailand November 2012 Here’s a link to another blog with more detail about the Bhuping Palace.

  1. Lovely pics …. and yes, I really like that pic in B&W too 🙂

  2. How beautiful! I like the black & white too, but not necessarily more than the original, with just that hint of color!
