Andean cock-of-the-rock, Rupicola peruvianus; Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel; great birding habitat with hummingbird and friut feeders. Andean cock-of-the-rock, also known as tunki (Quechua),[2] is a large passerine bird of the cotinga family Cotingidae,  native to Andean cloud forests in South America. It is widely regarded as the national bird of Peru. It has four subspecies and its closest relative is the Guianan cock-of-the-rock.  The Andean cock-of-the-rock exhibits marked sexual dimorphism; the male has a large disk-like crest and scarlet or brilliant orange plumage, while the female is significantly darker and browner. Gatherings of males compete for breeding females with each male displaying its colourful plumage, bobbing and hopping, and making a variety of calls. After mating, the female makes a nest under a rocky overhang, incubates the eggs, and rears the young, all by herself.  The Andean cock-of-the-rock eats a diet of fruit, supplemented by insects, amphibians, reptiles, and smaller mice. It is distributed all across the cloud forest of the Andes, having a range of around 260,000 km2 (100,000 sq mi). Even though it is being affected by destruction of its habitat, the Andean cock-of-the-rock is not classified as threatened.  National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World; Machu Picchu,  It is located in the Cusco Region, Urubamba Province, Machupicchu District in Peru, above the Sacred Valley, which is 80 kilometres northwest of Cuzco and through which the Urubamba River flows.

Royal Plaza, Winter Festival, His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun has graciously initiated the organisation of a winter festival under the theme 'Un Ai Rak Khlai Khwam Nao' Love and Warmth at Winter's End event, at the Royal Plaza on the grounds of Dusit Palace.The event reflects the long-standing bond between the Royal Institution and the Thai people, plus corresponds to the wishes of the late King Rama IX to carry on, conserve and continue to further develop all aspects of life for the benefit of the Thai nation.The public is encouraged to dress in traditional Thai period costume from the golden reign of King Rama V the Great, or wear Thai textiles or polite attire of this bygone era. The royally-initiated winter festival, Oon Ai Rak Klay Kwam Nao, will kick off at the Royal Plaza and Sanam Suea Pa in Bangkok. Bangkok Chao Phraya River delta, Bangkok  is the capital and most populous city of the Kingdom of Thailand. It is known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or simply Krung Thep. The city occupies 1,568.7 square kilometres (605.7 sq mi) in the Chao Phraya River delta in Central Thailand, and has a population of over 8 million, or 12.6 percent of the country's population. Over 14 million people (22.2 percent) lived within the surrounding Bangkok Metropolitan Region at the 2010 census, making Bangkok an extreme primate city, significantly dwarfing Thailand's other urban centres in terms of importance. Limited roads, despite an extensive expressway network, together with substantial private car usage, have led to chronic and crippling traffic congestion, which caused severe air pollution in the 1990s. The city has since turned to public transport in an attempt to solve this major problem. Thailand, Asia; Pacific Rim; THAI49176_130.jpg

Asian food; Thai food, Bangkok's Chinatown is one of the largest Chinatowns in the world. Numerous shops selling traditional goods, and is especially known as a gastronomic destination. It was founded in 1782 when the city was established as the capital of the Rattanakosin Kingdom, and served as the home of the mainly Teochew immigrant Chinese population, who soon became the city's dominant ethnic group. Originally centred around Sampheng, the core of Chinatown now lies along Yaowarat Road, which serves as its main artery and sometimes lends its name to the entire area, which is often referred to as Yaowarat.

Memorial and respect for death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. "Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej was the superlative monarch. He was the world's longest-reigning, the world's richest and, among his own subjects at least, the world's most adored. Throughout his 70 years on the throne, Bhumibol has been credited with staving off numerous catastrophes through intelligence, fortitude and his love of country. Bhumibol's body will rest in Bangkok's spired Grand Palace in a golden urn, draped in silk, gold and diamonds, for an official grieving period of one year, as Brahmin priests and Buddhist monks, wreathed in incense smoke, chant incantations." Sanctuary of Truth is a religious construction in Pattaya, Thailand. The sanctuary is an all-wood building filled with sculptures based on traditional Buddhist and Hindu motifs. The top of the building is 105 meters high, and the building covers an area of more than two rai. It features contemporary Visionary art based on traditional religious themes. The project was initiated as an idea of Thai businessman Lek Viriyaphant in 1981, and is scheduled to be completed in 2050. Made entirely of wood (without any metal nails) and commanding a celestial view of the ocean, the Sanctuary of Truth is best described as a visionary environment: part art installation, religious shrine and cultural monument. Constructed in four wings dedicated to Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Indian religious iconography, its architecture and setting is impressive. Pattaya, Thailand, Asia; Pacific Rim; THAI048187s.jpg
