Looking Up: Striking Architecture Around The World

After seeing photos of famous cities empty and almost deserted as a result of halted travel lately, I couldn't help but think of my favorite reason to travel, the best part of exploring any city.

From April 13-15, the entirety of Thailand celebrates its New Year. Specifically, Chiang Mai is famous for celebrating its Songkran "Water Festival" with the biggest parade in the nation, [...]
