Tunnel of Love latitude longitude | Instafamous, but where on earth is it? Via Social Media we receive a constant trickle of famous snapshots: the Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Forbidden City in Beijing, the Leaning Tower of Pisa etc etc. Many of these snapworthy sites around the globe we simply let pass by. We’ve been there, we’ve done that. But some catch our imagination and stick in our forehead like glue. Fascinating pictures of locations unknown to us. And those same photos keep coming again and again: a certain street of Baobab Trees somewhere in Africa, a village street somewhere in the UK, a stormy coastal highway somewhere in northern Europe, a pearly waterfall in China, a perfectly round bridge in How-do-I-know … We really would like to go there too. How can we find the GPS coordinates from those super popular Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook images? With some luck such photo might be carrying latitude and longitude information. But chances are low. Your best shot is to search for the GPS info, after you download a few matching photos and submit them to images.google.com. That will give you some additional clues.

This is what we were looking for: 50°45’3″N 26°2’50″E. But would we go there? No. The Tunnel of Love in Ukraine is a 4 km long railway track section between Klevan and Orzhiv. It is a single railway surrounded by green arches. Local couples in love like to take walks on that track. Yes, this location is indeed romantic, but this fact alone will not make us book a flight. And little did we know: Just telling by the following photo, there seems to be even competition. Instead of heading to Ukraine one might just look for something similar in Thailand …

For those of you willing to ignore public warnings: Thailand’s tunnel of love can be found in Bangkok, near the not so romantic Makkasan River at the height of the really not all romantic Bangchak Oil refinery railway track. Search for Na Ranong Road towards Khlong Toei Port, and Chaloem Maha Nakhon Expressway, Exit Khlong Toei. Be aware! Thailand’s Tunnel of Love is located in a very isolated spot which poses a risk for tourists due to common criminal activity in this part of Bangkok. The Thai authorities do not recommend tourists to go there.
