Kanchanaburi's Wat Tham Sua Temple


Wat Tham Sua

Flying Hor...

Wat Tham Sua ("Tiger Cave Temple") is one of two  famous Buddhist temples near Kanchanaburi, in the west-central part of Thailand.  While the temple was only built in the 1970's, it quickly became a popular cultural site.  The temple also benefits from being located near the site of the fabled Bridge Over the River Kwai, another major tourist draw in this part of the country.  Flying Horizons used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to treat us to an aerial view of this not-so-ancient temple in the jungle, in the province of Kanchanaburi.

Drone Tour of Bangkok


Bangkok from above


Bangkok is Thailand's largest city as well as its capital.  The city lies in the south of the main (non-peninsular) part of the country, at the head of the Gulf of Thailand.  The skyline of Bangkok has followed its population boom, and it now is one of the more impressive skylines in the world.  In this video, contributor and drone pilot Worldpitou takes us on a tour of this budding world city with a metropolitan population of over 15 million; the aerial views of the city's gleaming  skyscrapers are amazing. 

Chonburi: Mapracham Lake


Storks at Mapracharn Lake, Pattaya, Thailand


Pattaya is a medium-sized city on the east side of the Gulf of Thailand, not far from the border with Thailand's neighbor Cambodia.  It's the largest city in Chonburi, one of the 76 provinces which make up this Southeast Asian nation.  Nearby Mapracharn Lake has an enormous population of storks.  Contributor Danny Batchelor flew his DJI Phantom 4 drone over this lake, and was able to capture what appear to be thousands of storks flying over the lake.  Shot on a brilliant day, the storks are so numerous as to appear unreal.

Over Bangkok


You'll get an amazing bird's eye view of Bangkok's modern central business district by contributor Drone Home.  Shot along the Chao Praya river, which runs through the heart of the Thai capital city, you will see many of the 70 buildings (as of early 2019) of at least 150 meters (around 500 ft.) in height.  As a skyline ranking measure, that puts it at #15 on a worldwide ranking of cities by that measure, ahead of Toronto, Miami, Melbourne, and Houston, among other cities with notable skylines around the world.
