Maptaphut is a industrial area very close to the town of Rayong, in Thailand. It is part of Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard economic region, and is the country’s largest industrial estate and the world’s eight-largest petrochemical industrial hub. I live quite close to the area and pass through on the way to Rayong to go shopping with my wife. Several times I have thought that this maybe a great place to take pictures of the structures.
I have put together a series of pictures portraying the industrial site, both at day and night. The industrial site looks fantastic at night and with the thousands of lights, this adds a drama to the whole estate.
