Travel Photography Competition – week 110

What do I travel for - Refuge des Èvettes, France

Hello everyone and welcome to the 110th edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition! This week we are looking at the photos posted on our Facebook page between 28th September and 4th October.

The winning photo this week was taken at the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda in Mon State, Myanmar. Popularly known as the Golden Rock, the Buddhist pilgrimage site is, according to legend, perched upon one of the Buddha’s hairs and is notable for its gravity-defying precarious position. The site is located in the small town of Kyaikhto, about 160km from Yangon and the price of entry is 6€.
