Abstract:

In Central Thailand's forests, fertile plains and even city streets, nature finds a way of living alongside people. This bustling region is known as the nation's rice bowl, but even here there are magical places to be found, where time seems to have stood still. Spirituality is often the key to understanding Central Thailand's harmonious relationship with nature. Away from the skyscrapers of Bangkok and the manicured lawns of Lumpini Park, where enormous water monitor lizards mingle with the picnicking families, a ceremony epitomizing the Thai Buddhist notion of "making merit" takes place. A group of formerly captive elephants are released by Thailand's beloved Princess Sirindhorn into the forest. They will now form part of a herd of rehabilitated elephants that live and breed as wild elephants once more. From giant bats to giant snakes, feisty fighting fish to wondrous and mysterious whales, Central Thailand is unique, spiritual and still untamed.
