Looking south to north onto Ko Lipe's Pattaya Beach in full 360º panorama. (Please be patient. The panorama is approximately 6MB worth of download.)

The pundits and naysayers predicted it was impossible but I showed them wrong! A 360º panorama of the ocean taken from the bobbing platform provided by a paddle boat. As one would expect, some of the edges didn't perfectly align but a simple 3 hours of photoshopping seemed to render the problem unnoticeable. The experiment has left me more emboldened to attempt the paddle boat panorama on different parts of the island... more to come!
