The Singapore Flyer is the world’s largest observation wheel. A one-of-a-kind experience and built over a three-story terminal building, the Flyer is 160 metres in diameter, 185 metres high, and travels at 0.21m per second. With breathtaking panorama views that are so radically different during the day and at night, it’s hard to choose the best time to take a ride, but our favourite time ti ride the Singapore Ferris wheel is around dusk, when the sunlight gives way to millions of sparkling lights #singapore #singapur #flower_daily #flowers_super_pics #flower_igers #marinabaywaterfront #traveltheworld #southeastasia #singapore🇸🇬 #singapure #livetotravel #marinabaysingapore #marinabay #singaporeflyer #ferriswheel #ruedadelafortuna #reflection_shotz #visitsingapore #travelgram #exploresingapore #travellife #flowerpic #flowers #nightphotography #sky_love #travelphotography #skyporn #skymasters_family #natgeotravel #amazingtravelbeauty

The Hong Islands are a small group of tropical Islands a short distance up the coast from Aonang. The Andaman sea is dotted with hundreds of small Islands of various sizes. Most of them have limestone Karsts at the center making them really quite unique. The Karsts are limestone mountains that have been formed over millions of years as softer rock around the limestone is eroded creating gigantic pillars of stone. The karsts are coated with a thin layer of soil that allows thick vegetation to grow on top and on all but the steepests of cliff walls. #hongisland #phiphi #aonang #mayabay #krabi #krabithailand #phuket #thailand #siam #tailandia #thailand_allshots #southeastasia #andaman #phuketthailand #phukettrip #thailand🇹🇭 #thailand_ig #thailandtrip #asiatravel #thailandtravel #phiphiislands #andamansea #krabithailand #asiatrip #h2o_natura #kohhong #amazingtravelbeauty #canoetrip #naturephotographer #nature_lovers

James Bond Island is a famous landmark in Phang Nga Bay. It first found its way onto the international tourist map through its starring role in the James Bond movie 'The Man with the Golden Gun'. A distinctive feature of this famous bay is the number of sheer limestone cliffs that vertically jut out of the emerald-green water. #jamesbondisland #phangnga #phangngabay #phangan #thailand #tailandia #thailand_allshots #mayabay #krabi #krabithailand #phuket #thailand #tailandia #southeastasia #andaman #phuketthailand #phukettrip #thailand🇹🇭 #thailand_ig #thailandtrip #asiatravel #thailandtravel #phiphiislands #andamansea #krabithailand #asiatrip #h2o_natura #amazingtravelbeauty #naturephotographer #nature_lovers

Phi Phi Island is Thailand's island-superstar. It's been in the movies. It's the topic of conversation for travelers all over Thailand. For some, it's the only reason to touchdown in Phuket. Even with all the hype, it doesn't disappoint. Phi Phi's beauty is a large chunk of the allure. The islands, when approached by boat, rise from the sea like a fortress. Sheer cliffs tower overhead, then give way to beach-fronted jungle. It's love at first sight. #mayabay #phiphiisland #phiphi #mayabay #krabi #krabithailand #phuket #thailand #tailandia #southeastasia #thailand_allshots #andaman #phuketthailand #phukettrip #thailand🇹🇭 #thailand_ig #thailandtrip #asiatravel #travelholic #thailand_allshots #thailandtravel #phiphiislands #andamansea #krabithailand #kohphiphi #asiatrip #h2o_natura #amazingtravelbeauty #naturephotographer #nature_lovers

Wat Arun, locally known as Wat Chaeng, is situated on the west (Thonburi) bank of the Chao Phraya River. It is easily one of the most stunning temples in Bangkok, not only because of its riverside location, but also because the design is very different to the other temples you can visit in Bangkok. Wat Arun (or temple of the dawn) is partly made up of colourfully decorated spires and stands majestically over the water. #watarun #thailand #amazingthailand #exotictravel #thailand🇹🇭 #southeastasia #bangkok #bangkokthailand #bangkoktrip #travelthailand #lostinthailand #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #sunset_globe #sunset_captures #sunset_stream #orangesky #skymasters_family #asiatravel #sunset_hub #sunsetsky #sunsetstrip #sunrise🌅 #travelleisuremx #travelholic #sunshine #thailandtrip #thailandtravel #thailand_ig #thailandinstagram #watpho

Maya Bay is a stunningly beautiful bay that's sheltered by 100-metre high cliffs on three sides. Inside the bay there are several beaches, most are small and some only exist at low tide. The main one is around 200 metres long with silky soft white sand, underwater colourful coral and exotic fish in exceptionally clear water; the whole bay is one big reef. #mayabay #phiphiisland #phiphi #mayabay #krabi #krabithailand #phuket #thailand #tailandia #southeastasia #thailand_allshots #andaman #phuketthailand #phukettrip #thailand🇹🇭 #thailand_ig #thailandtrip #asiatravel #travelholic #thailand_allshots #thailandtravel #phiphiislands #andamansea #krabithailand #kohphiphi #asiatrip #h2o_natura #amazingtravelbeauty #naturephotographer #nature_lovers

Imagine a stunning beach cove, located 30 minutes away from a populated island. A cove whose crystal blue waters are almost glowing, the sand silky soft under your feet, the surrounding cliff faces beautifully dominant in a protective hug and where the surrounding choppy waters protect the enclave from human invaders. Welcome to Maya Bay on Ko Phi Phi Lay, an enclave of paradise on the coastline of Koh Phi Phi Leh – the smaller sister island of Thailand’s sun, surf and snorkel haven of Koh Phi Phi. #mayabay #phiphiisland #phiphi #krabi #krabithailand #phuket #thailand #siam #tailandia #southeastasia #thailand_allshots #andaman #phuketthailand #phukettrip #thailand #thailand_ig #thailandtrip #asiatravel #travelholic #thailand_allshots #thailandtravel #phiphiislands #andamansea #krabithailand #kohphiphi #asiatrip #h2o_natura #amazingtravelbeauty #naturephotographer #nature_lovers

Preah Khan temple is located in the Angkor Archaeological Park and is still largely unrestored. It is one of the larger temple complexes within the historic park (year 1091). This majestic temple complex is surrounded by a moat, and its surface area stretches over a swatch of land that’s 800 meters by 700 meters, enclosing an area of 56 hectares. Its aesthetics are very similar to nearby famous Angkor temple Ta Prohm, with vegetation and trees seeming to swallow the ruins... #preahkhan #temple #angkorthom #angkor #angkorwat #siemreap #cambodia #cambodian #camboya #angkort #asiatravel #reflection #unescoworldheritagesite #unescoworldheritage #travelasia #travelsoutheastasia #southeastasia #cambodia🇰🇭 #cambodge #asiatrip #visitcambodia #angkortemples #archeologia #archeology #travelcambodia #amazing_shots #amazingtravelbeauty #explorers #travelleisuremx #travelgrams

Bayon... Top choice buddhist temple in Angkor Thom... At the heart of Angkor Thom is the 12th-century Bayon, the mesmerising, if slightly mind-bending, state temple of Jayavarman VII. It epitomises the creative genius and inflated ego of Cambodia’s most celebrated king. Its 54 Gothic towers are decorated with 216 gargantuan smiling faces of Avalokiteshvara, and it is adorned with 1.2km of extraordinary bas-reliefs incorporating more than 11,000 figures. The temple's eastward orientation leads most people to visit in the morning. However, Bayon looks equally good around late afternoon. #bayon #bayontemple #angkorthom #angkor #angkorwat #siemreap #cambodia #cambodian #camboya #angkort #asiatravel #unescoworldheritagesite #guruhdr #unescoworldheritage #travelasia #travelsoutheastasia #southeastasia #cambodian #cambodge #asiatrip #visitcambodia #angkortemples #archeologia #archeology #travelcambodia #amazing_shots #amazingtravelbeauty #explorers #travelleisuremx #travelgrams

Sunrise at Angkor Wat... Famed for being the world’s largest religious building, Angkor Wat is the most popular spot to catch first light. Built in the 12th century, the temple faces west and so the sun rises dramatically from behind its iconic spires. The quintessential shot of Angkor Wat at sunrise is taken from behind the reflection pools, where you can see the temple’s stunning silhouette mirrored in the still waters. #angkor #angkorwat #siemreap #cambodia #cambodian #camboya #angkorthom #angkorwatsunrise #asiatravel #unescoworldheritagesite #guruhdr #unescoworldheritage #travelasia #travelsoutheastasia #southeastasia #cambodge #asiatrip #visitcambodia #angkortemples #travelcambodia #amazing_shots #amazingtravelbeauty #h2o_natura #travelleisuremx #travelgrams #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #sunrise_lovers #sunrise🌅 #skymasters_family #skyporn

Ta Prohm is the modern name of the temple at Angkor, Siem Reap,  Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th centurie and originally called  Rajavihara. Unlike most Angkorian , Ta Prohm is in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the  junglesurroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples. UNESCO inscribed Ta Prohm on the World Heritage List in 1992. Today, it is one of the most visited complexes in Cambodia’s Angkor region.  #taprohm #angkor #angkorwat #siemreap #cambodia #cambodian #camboya #angkorthom #asiatravel #unescoworldheritagesite #guruhdr #unescoworldheritage #travelasia #travelsoutheastasia #southeastasia #cambodian #cambodge #asiatrip #visitcambodia #angkortemples #archeologia #archeology #explore #travelcambodia #amazing_shots #amazingtravelbeauty #explorers #travelleisuremx #travelgrams #hindutemple

The Koutoubia Mosque is the largest mosque in Marrakesh,  Morocco. The mosque is ornamented with curved windows, a band of ceramic inlay, pointed  merlons, and decorative arches; it has a large plaza with gardens. The minaret, 77 metres (253 ft) in height, includes a spire and orbs. It was completed under the reign of the Berber Almohad  Caliph  Yaqub al-Mansur (1184 to 1199), and has inspired other buildings such as the Giralda of Seville. #koutoubia #marrakech #morocco #africa #african #mosque #morocco🇲🇦 #moroccotravel #marrakesh #northafrica #marruecos #travelholic #mesquita #travelnow #travelers #natgeotravel #marrakechmedina #instamorocco #loves_morroco #visitmarrakech #lonleyplanet #worldheritage #visitmarrakech #exploreafrica #exploremorocco #jemaaelfna #amazingtravelbeauty #ig_africa #amazing_shots #iloveafrica

Ait-Ben-Haddou is an ancient mud brick city which is an UNESCO World Heritage site. Because of its unique architecture this village has been a setting for many popular films such as Game of Thrones, Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia. The village was build 1000 years ago and before, it used to be an important point along the caravan route. Now it’s one of the most attractive points along the High Atlas mountain road. #aitbenhaddou #ksar #ouarzazate #morocco🇲🇦 #mountains #africa #atlasmountains #moroccovacations #kasbah #morocco #moroccotravel #northafrica #marruecos #natgeotravel #unescoworldheritage #instamorocco #h2o_natura #unescoworldheritage #loves_morroco #lonleyplanet #exploreafrica #exploremorocco #africa_vacations #travelmorocco #amazingtravelbeauty #ig_africa #amazing_shots #iloveafrica #visitmorocco #moroccotrip
