The golden 18-meter tall Big Buddha of Pattaya stands on Pratamnak Hill.

Thailand, Chiang Mai

Thailand Chiang Mai, Photography by Patric Tengelin

It has to be admitted that the beautiful pink haze over Chiang Mai is partly the result of very unhealthy smog.

Chiang Mai - Trails and Hiking

Chiang Mai has a lot of fantastic trails if you like hiking.

Patric Tengelin at Junge De Cafe

At Jungle De Cafe you can hang out for many hours. It's super mellow.

Patric Tengelin at White Temple, Chiang Rai Province

Wat Rong Khun or better known as the White Temple can be found in Chiang Rai Province.

Thailand, Phuket

Patong Boxing Stadium

Ringside at Patong Boxing Stadium.

Silent Prayers

Saying a silent prayer on an evening stroll and my amused friend had to snap a picture. Not sure what's worse, the photo quality or my prayer technique.

Vietnam, Saigon

Streets of Saigon, Vietnam

The streets of Saigon are extremely vibrant. I used to walk this street up and down for a couple of months and got to know some real characters.

Vietnam Street Photography by Patric Tengelin

I asked to sell a laptop and was given a price based on the model. When I turned up he had a look and raised the price he was willing to pay because there was more memory than he originally thought. I was amazed by his honesty. Vietnamese people also have a very respectful way of handing back change when you pay them in cash. At least that was my interpretation.

Bolt Taxi Driver Saigon

You will be absolutely amazed at how Bolt taxi drivers in Saigon literally live on their bikes. You'll see them eat, sleep and work on them.

In Vietnam and Bali you'll always get a helmet but in Thailand very rarely.

My neighbor had figured out how best to take delivery of his lunch. He's on the 5th floor. I swear I could hear he kept chickens in his apartment.

Hard working Vietnamese people.

Vietnam Transportation

According to Transport Department statistics reported by Thanh Nien, Saigon is home to 7.43 million registered motorbikes. The city has 9 million inhabitants.

Saigon Central Post Office

The Saigon Central Post Office was constructed when Vietnam was part of French Indochina in the late 19th century. You still see French influence in religion, coffee, architecture and some famous Vietnamese dishes like bánh mì (bread) and phở (noodle soup) are influenced by French cuisine. I swear I saw people keep more French poodles than any other dogs as well.

War Remnants Museum

The War Remnants Museum is a war museum at 28 Vo Van Tan, in District 3 in Saigon, Vietnam. It's sad but a must-see.

Vietnam, Hanoi

Railroad Tracks Hanoi Photographed by Patric Tengelin

The famous railroad tracks in Hanoi which are no longer operational because of the Instagram phenomenon.

Statue of Lenin in Hanoi

The Statue of Lenin in Hanoi is a reminder of the communist leader's influence on Vietnamese culture and politics.

I loved coming down this road and seeing a father and son play badminton and a proud wife and mother watch from the sidelines.


Patric Tengelin at Kuala Lumpur

You can find some magnificent accomodation with inspiring view in Kuala Lumpur.

Jalan Alor Street Photography

Jalan Alor is a strip of atmospheric, air-conditioned Chinese seafood restaurants in Bukit Bintang. Lately we've seen the addition of Jalan Alor Street Art as well. Really cool.

Petronas Twin Towers

The biggest Christmas Tree I've ever seen with only the Petronas Twin Towers able to eclipse its height.

Old meets new in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a cosmopolitan metropolis filled with high-end shopping and plenty of exciting things to do and places to explore.

Brighton, UK

It's funny how you'll see these same letter boxes still in pretty much all former UK colonies as well.

Brighton Palace Pier

First place I always go when I end up in Brighton is Brighton Palace Pier.

Who can forget the deserted streets during Covid lockdown? This is what I Am Legend would've looked like if it had been shot on North Street in Brighton.

White Cliffs of Brighton

The White Cliffs of Brighton. Such an amazing hike.

Classic old phone booth

Classic old phone booth. Wonder if they still work?

Paris, France

Eiffel tower pic by Patric Tengelin

Who doesn't love Paris and especially the Eiffel Tower? I like getting to the park just in front of the tower early evening. The darker it gets the more intense the lights get and then at the top of every hour the Tower sparkles for 5 minutes.

This amazing church can hold 5,000 people and is among the 10 largest Eastern Orhodox churches. Make sure you take your hat off when you enter or you'll be told to. I was.

Early Morning Walk

On an early morning walk through an unprivileged part of Sofia I saw lots of people turn up both on foot and in cars to fill up on drinking water.
