Chiang Mai Mekong exhibition moves to Bangkok
The photo exhibition “Mysterious Mekong: A journey
through the heart of Indochina” will be displayed at the lobby of the
Chalerm Prakiat Building on the grounds of the Siam Society in Bangkok on
June 30 in conjunction with its Annual General Meeting.
The exhibition, which will last until July 20, was
compiled by Reinhard Hohler and dedicated to the German explorer Dr. Adolf
Bastian, who traveled on the river in 1864.
“Hovercraft Expedition Mekong” was co-organized by
Diethelm Travel and the Brooker Group in Bangkok on November 2-17, 2002 and
covered nearly 3.000 km of the river from Simao Port in Yunnan to its delta
in the southern part of Vietnam. As the seats for an Australian film crew on
the return journey were cancelled because of the Bali bombing accident in
Indonesia, tour director Reinhard Hohler made it alone back to China. In his
photo exhibition “Mysterious Mekong”, Hohler will position, protect and
promote the different geographical and economic aspects of the river. On
show will be a map of the river plus 72 well-selected photos to demonstrate
the successful outcome of the expedition.
The 72 photos - available on CD - will highlight the
expedition via Jinghong in China through Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and
Cambodia to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, displaying the hovercraft, the six
members of the expedition and the river scenery of the Greater Mekong
Sub-region. The transfer of the hovercraft around the Khon Falls in Southern
Laos will be dramatically exposed. Besides a spectacular side trip to
Angkor, there is also shown the gravesite of the world-famous French
explorer Henri Mouhot in Luang Prabang to give the exhibition historical
Preparations to hold the exhibition were completed after

venues, such as the L’Ecole Francaise d’Extreme-Orient Chiang Mai in
January 2005 and the Sofitel Royal Angkor Hotel and Spa at Siem
Reap/Cambodia in March 2005.
The Siam Society under royal patronage since 1904 and is

If you use D.M.O. to plant, the microorganisms will
change the soil to a higher quality by producing nutrition for plants while
they are better protected from disease. D.M.O. is free from toxins and
chemicals and saves costs and it is not dangerous for the health of the
producer and the consumer and safe for the environment.
For more information about D.M.O., call: 0 5325 5599.
