Overnight in Krabi

Caught a ferry from Koh Phi Phi back to Krabi as it is a convenient place to stay before heading south down the mainland.
We were here a few days ago and I published pictures of the traffic lights.
This time I have chosen the White Temple which is on a little hill in the centre of Krabi. It is very impressive, but a strange experience as we were just about the only people there.
The Temple is guarded by gold dragons all of the way up the staircase and to one side there is a park with life size concrete elephants and tigers wandering amongst a man-made waterfall and stream.
It is not quite finished yet and the photos are taken a bit artfully to catch it at its best.
I loved the blue plant pots filled with water and I think that the plants in them may be lotus flowers.
There were many of them, all around the Temple and they looked beautiful against the white background of the Temple.
