A group of adventurous people with insatiable wanderlust and a penchant for the theatrical dressed themselves as yak (the mythical guardian giants of Thai folklore) and toured the country, shooting iconic photos and video along the way.
Bongkoch “Film” Jarerntum and Tachai “Geng” Prathumwan from The Voice Thailand led the group, known as Yak Teaw Thai, or A Giant’s Thai Trip.
Here we present our favorite stills from the resulting viral video, along with a few additions from our own photo archives, for your enjoyment and inspiration. Happy travels!
