Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. Still on the cool side, we’ve had fabulous sunshine and blue skies in Daejeon this week. While I was thinking about what to post this week I was browsing through shots in my Flickr account, and realized that I hadn’t posted my favorite shots from 2011. This week I give you a round up of some of my favorite travel photo memories from 2011.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

Wat Rong Khun – “The White Temple” – Chiang Rai, Thailand
This temple is the vision of Thai artist Chalermchai Kositpipat. You will not find another like it in Thailand, or probably Asia. Located in Thailand’s northern most city, Chiang Rai, it’s reported to be the city’s most visited attraction.
I have to say I had never seen anything like it, and wandering around both the grounds and inside the temple was an eye opener.

Hanging Out at the Singapore Zoo
One of the highlights of my time spent in Singapore in 2011 was the Singapore Zoo. I even paid $25.00 to eat breakfast with the Orangutans, and loved every minute. The buffet breakfast was also delicious and I thought good value for the amount of food available and the quality. If you are staying in a hotel in Singapore,I highly suggest you visit the Singapore Zoo, it is one of the top attractions.
In case you missed my post on the Zoo…you can find it here…Singapore Zoo.
Chili Madness; Myung Mai Market, Chiang Mai
Located close to the American Embassy and the Ping River in downtown Chiang Mai, this is a great market to visit with your camera early in the morning. The light will not disappoint.

The Seoul Lantern Festival is held along the Cheonggyecheon Stream every November, and the lanterns are over the top beautiful. The swans is one of my favorite shots from the evening that I attended.
