Our winners today 🍍

🥇 San Juan, Puerto Rico- Travel #62 by @vegoutt-travel

I have visited a lot of fortress's and castles all over the world, most of which have crumbled to little more than ruins. This fortress in Old San Juan is in impeccable condition. There is barely a crack in any of the walls. My favouite thing about the fortress is it's incredible uninterrupted 360 degree view of the ocean. The three flags that adorn the top of the fortress today are the Cross of Burgundy, a Spanish military flag used between the 16th and 18th century, the Puerto Rican flag and the United States flag.

🥈 Myanmar - The longest wooden footbridge in the world by @digi-me

Among the places I chose to visit in Myanmar, Mandalay was a highlight and should be included in anyone's travel plans to this country. It's the second largest city and once the capital of the country. It's not only the former Royal Palace and all the famous temples and monasteries that makes it worth visiting. The surroundings offer many great daytrip. One of them is Amarapura where the main attraction is the iconic U-Bein bridge made of teak wood. The longest footbridge in the world.

🥉 A Forlorn and Destitute Khao San Road by @nathen007

Khao San Road is probably the most famous tourist haunt in Bangkok, especially with the younger backpackers as its fun, friendly and cheap. In normal circumstances its bright, brash and loud and packed with people simply having fun. Tonight, it was a sad sight and true indication of the tragedy that has befallen the Thai tourist industry and the millions of working-class Thais who depend on it for their meagre, hard-earned livelihoods.
