Hello fellow Steemians!

I am starting the week #72 of my 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge and we are back to the continent of Asia.

If you like to participate, place your personal image from your travels in Asia in the comment section below with a short 30 to 50 word description. Only use of personal images will be accepted and only one picture can be submitted for a daily photo challenge. Ten winning photos will receive a bigger upvote from me and ten runners-up will get a smaller one.

Chosen from the ten winning entries, the absolute winner of the day will receive extended publicity in my post tomorrow morning. I will also visit his/her blog to upvote one of the most recent posts. The winning picture of the daily challenge will then automatically enter other rounds with the absolute winner gaining approximately 200 SBD in total. So far I have given out thousands of dollars in upvotes and hundreds of SBD in rewards.

After today´s Asian photo contest, the 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge will be followed as per below rotation and then starting again with Asia on next Sunday.

• Monday: Australia and New Zealand

• Wednesday: Africa
• Thursday: Europe

• Saturday: South America

See the winner of the last week´s Asian Sunday @vinceboisgard with the following entry:

From the highest roof of Dhaka, the view is incredible. The scenery is almost futuristic, old buildings falling a part and new construction shining under this magnificent light. The pollution creates a fog sitting over the capital gives the final touch to this photo.

There are just a few parts of the Great Wall of China which have been restored. The main part of the Wall has been taken over by nature. We have hiked on both parts of the wall.

Awesome shot, I would like very much to walk this legendary Great wall of China. This must be something to see!

The Ark

From my childhood I like science-fiction a lot. There are many novels telling the stories about how finally the humans going to colonize other worlds - in a big spaceships full of everything, starting from necessary machines and ending by various flora and fauna examples. And yes, of course thousands of colonists

So that's how would probably such space-ship - the Ark - could look like? Yes, but in reality this is famous Burj-Khalifa in Dubai, UAE.

Enjoy the scenery!

Amazing, it really looks like a scene from a sci-fi movie.

On the edge of the Buriganga river, boats are being fixed or build. Between these gigantic metallic constructions, kids are wandering, exploring and playing. It is such a dangerous place and yet kids are playing cricket or exploring the place like adventurers.

Location: Dhaka, Bangladesh.

I can't remember the name of this temple... I do know it is somewhere in Bangkok; but what really attracked me here where the two huge guardian statues.


They are called dvarapala, guardians of gates or doors, and are normally fearsome armed giants. I've seen a few in Thailand, and are one of my favourite kind of statues; and these too definitely stood out!

This is a shot of a mountain in Iran which is almost completely made up of salt! There are many different colors ranging from blue to red which result from the many pigments that the earth there carries. It was really out of this world and I constantly felt like being on another planet :)




Hongkong 2015
Today I share with you a picture which I took a few years ago on my travel in Hongkong. Still to this day I haven't seen anything similar to this concrete jungle. It's crazy how many buildings growing out of the ground in this narrow area.

Taken at one of the major religious festivals in Taiwan last year. This is part of a big procession where many temples carry their god or goddess in carriages and join the parade. The people here were really kind. When they saw me with my camera, they all stood aside to let me take a photo of the carriage. You can find my post here.

Something I like in China is the way they put original stuff along the way. It is cool to see sexy characters of this kind and is the reason I took this picture.

I took this picture in Xian, China!


Osaka Castle is one of Japan's most famous castles. He played a major role during the unification of Japan in the sixteenth century. The castle is beautiful and its garden even more. We can also admire the city from the observation floor. One of the nicest castles of Japan.


Ayutthaya, Thailand.
This photo always reminds me of a quote from Stephen Chbosky:
"these will all be stories some day".
Around 1700 Ayutthaya was one of the world's largest cities with the population reaching one milion people. At present, Ayutthaya is an archaeological ruin, which gives you an idea of the city’s past glory.
