Khao Tao - a picturesque village

Khao Tao Village - a tiny and absolutely charming fishing village located less than 20 kms south of Hua Hin. We hired a tuk-tuk in Hua Hin to take us out to this tiny village and made arrangements with our driver to pick us up late in the day. Not only is Khao Tao charming with all the colourful fishing boats, the people are super nice and friendly. There was a festival happening the day we were there (more on that in an upcoming post!).

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
