This is a follow up to my previous post on the Bhuping Palace in northern Thailand near Chiang Mai. 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. Below is my favourite photo, and I prefer it in black and white. (Do you?)
As we walked down from the King’s water feature, we came across this carving, complete with elephants emerging from the jungle. Here’s a link to another blog with more detail about the Bhuping Palace.
And a link from Tourism Thailand.
