@GGANG Yes, the website startpage is a bit heavy, especially since it is loading lots of images also for the menu at the same time as the full-size images for the slideshow.

Most importantly though, your slideshow images are very big. I checked one, and it was 2MB ...

By comparison, images on our website mjau-mjau.com with the same size (2048px) are only 2-300kb!

I don't know from what application you are compressing and saving JPGs, but you can have MUCH HIGHER compression without having to upload smaller images. Another few reasons why you can afford much higher compression for large original images (2048 etc):
1. When images are this big, they will normally scale down in the browser, which makes artifacts of high-compression less visible.
2. Many modern devices are retina (double-density pixels), which can afford much higher compression without affecting the quality much.
If you want to review technical details about this, read this.

So because you are a photographer, I assume you normally review JPG compression by comparing compressed images in full size to the original? Basically, you can afford much higher compression for the web, because the original (2048) will always be scaled down, and compression-artifacts are much less visible because of this.

After adding higher compression, I would also recommend using a JPG-cruncher like imageoptim (mac), which will perform lossless (no loss in visual quality) compression on your JPG images. There are several applications that do this, and we have an active thread here:
https://forum.photo.gallery/viewtopic.php?f=9&p=37304

May I also ask, where is this website hosted, and what locations do you expect your website-visitors to come from? Since you have a fairly heavy website, it might benefit a lot by adding to cloudflare as specified in this forum topic:
https://forum.photo.gallery/viewtopic.php?t=8574

Your photos look amazing, although I did not get a chance to review all.

This website host by Godaddy.
I have setting in the Google webmaster tool for the target users is Thailand.

and the another one thing, I have this code into .htaccess file for non-www and already verified in the webmaster tool for both version (www and non-www)
Code
Options +FollowSymLinks
Options +Indexes
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.pornsaknanakorn\.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://pornsaknanakorn.com/$1 [R=301,L]
How effect about this code?

Thank you very much for your advice. :D

Google webmaster tools will not have any effect on the speed of the website. Is the Godaddy server located in US? If most of the clients visitors are in Thailand, should not the host server be closer to Thailand? Bangkok or Singapore perhaps?

I am also based in Thailand, and use Cloudflare for most of our websites, because it means images and other static assets will get cached and served from Singapore. This makes the websites load much faster, because Singapore serves files very fast to Thailand.

What is the question? The above code redirects all requests to http://WWW.domain to http://domain. It is a good idea, because I think www is outdated and nobody needs to read it in the URL. Besides, it is bad practice to have BOTH www and non-www urls available.
Click here http://www.pornsaknanakorn.com and you will see it goes to http://pornsaknanakorn.com

I'm very glad. You're stay in Phuket, Thailand. A very nice place. I hope that you don't plan to move back.

I decided to write a blog post about optimizing images for X3. See post:
