Over multiple expeditions, the Land of Smiles has welcomed our chair.
 
Despite months of enthusiastic preparations, we are met with a warmth and natural beauty that first embraces then eclipses all that we thought we knew.
With smiles of our own, the different shades of Thailand soon become ours.

Welcome to Take Your Seat, Thailand!

‘There is a heartbeat in Thailand that quickly becomes our own.

Temples and tourists, tuk-tuks and skytrains create a rhythm of sights and sounds
that our camera eagerly captures.

We are absorbed by the whirl of activity and quiet reverence that happily mingle.’

‘The water is still. The jungle, quiet.

 

The silence of an early morning belies our excitement as both Thai and Canadians anticipate the sun’s arrival. She does not disappoint. As pink striations appear on the horizon, we are in awe.

 

Once again, Thailand surprises us.’
