One Lost Geek Top 100 Travel Photos (#100 to #91)

From Japan up north to Bali in the south, here are One Lost Geek’s top 100 travel photos.

#100 Kotoku-in Temple Grounds, Kamakura

OFF THE BEATEN PATH. Hidden deep within the the temple grounds of Kotoku-in, this expertly preserved shrine is located just a few steps from the famous giant Buddha of Kamakura, and is surrounded by a centuries old forest.

#99 Wat Lokayasutharam, Ayutthaya

SLEEPING BUDDHA. This reclining Buddha is one of the most common and iconic Buddha statues in this former capital of Thailand. Visit Wat Lokayasutharam as part of a tour under the tourism agency of the Ayutthaya.

#98 Imperial Palace, Tokyo

EMPEROR COURTESY CALL. Viewed only from afar near the Nijubashi Bridge (“Double Bridge”) where the royal family makes an appearance to the public on special occasions, the Imperial Palace here in Tokyo is home to Japan’s emperors since the Meiji Restoration.

#97 Osaka Castle, Kansai

TOKUGAWA’S ARMY. Depicting the Siege of Osaka, a series of battles undertaken by the Tokugawa shogunate against the Toyotomi clan, this diorama can be viewed at one of the upper floors of the Osaka Castle, complete with historical information about feudal Japan.

#96 Ocean Park, Hong Kong

CONSIDER THIS DIEM CARPED. Inside the dark and cold aquarium in Hong Kong’s Ocean Park.

#95 Cebu Provincial Capitol, Cebu City

PEOPLE’S HALL. The iconic dome of Cebu Provincial Capitol basking in the early morning sun. Built in 1910, it replaced the old Casa Provincial in the city’s Spanish quarter.

#94 Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon, Ayutthaya

YELLOW, THE COLOR OF BUDDHA. Buddhas in the ancient city of Ayutthaya are usually covered in yellow, the sacred color of Buddhism. Legend has it that when the white cloth Buddha wore and used to wrap dead bodies was tanned by the sun, and moistened by the rain, it became wheat colored.

#93 Somewhere in Siargao, Mindanao

COCONUT PATH. This famous Instagram spot is hard to find, due mainly for the fact that locals know this particular road by its different names, but also because Siargao boasts many views of coconut forests such as this.

#92 BenCab Museum, Baguio City

ADMIRING LOCAL ART. Not your typical tourist spot in the Philippine summer capital of Baguio City, the BenCab Museum houses the permanent collection of Philippine National Artist Benedicto Cabrera in several galleries.

#91 Baler, Aurora

BREATHTAKING SUNSET. At the roadside towards the famous surfers’ beach of Baler in the Philippines, this beachside is typical all over the country. Park your car by the beach, and basked in the view and exploding color of this sunset.
