A trained eye

If your planning a trip to the Land of Smiles, why to not whet your travel appetite with some stunning shots from around the Kingdom?

In the last decade, the web has become the world's wallpaper with everything from award winning photography and digital art to globetrotters' personal travel galleries and holiday snaps easily browsable with a simple search. National Geographic has always been one of the cornerstones of great travel photography. In fact, since 1888, National Geographic has been sponsoring and reporting on discovery and bringing the world's natural and man-made wonders to the attention of armchair explorers and would-be global travellers. Fortunately, the minds behind what is one of the world's largest nonprofit scientific and educational organizations have been smart enough to tap into the world of open source imagery and they regularly run contests and post the best shots submitted by people traversing the planet. For a digital trip like no other, check out the 2012 Photo Contest Winners Gallery: http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/traveler-magazine/photo-contest/2012/entries/gallery/winners-winners/?source=photomaindl Alternatively, if you're planning a trip to Thailand, set the scene with a look at the Nat Geo Travel Shot gallery, which includes an incredible aerial photo of Phuket and a great underwater snorkelling photo off Koh Tao, near Samui: http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/countries/your-thailand-photos/     by LVH Marketing
