Bangkok is definitely one of the best cities to explore by foot in the world. It's simply an amazing city. I've been to Bangkok numerous times and still feel as though I haven't seen enough yet. I'd have to live there for 1-2 years to see everything. lol

coming from KL you can feel the difference with Bangkok straightaway.

One of such big difference is the...... number of convenient stores

Bangkok is a city full of convenient stores ( outside Japan & Taiwan ), they are just almost everywhere and have much more product variety than convenient stores in Malaysia.

I'm thinking about visiting Thailand for a couple of months this summer. If I do...I'll take a few thousand pics and post a couple of hundred here. There does seem to a 7-11 at just about every corner in Thailand though.

Yes, 7-Eleven are everywhere in Thailand, even in the most remote places and sometimes there 2-3 of them in the same corner!

Thailand is also the third-biggest 7-Eleven site with 5,500 outlets in Thailand as of 06/2010, after Japan (12,000) and the US (6000).
It's expected to reach 7000 by 2012. They're growing like mushroom!

more pics -


On our way to the Grand Palace


The Democracy Monument







Traffic approaching the Palaces in the old city!



The amazing spires of the Grand Palace/Wat Phra Kaew complex!!



Near the ticket office. You can't see here, but just below the pic is so many people all crowded







And as you see here, it was packed that day - and very hot and sunny!



























Murals along this long, long wall in the palace.










Outside the Grand Palace complex. Lots of street stalls selling food and fruit etc... I remember seeing school children here too, maybe on excursions or something!



More soon!!

Indeed. While many KL residents need to drive in order to get their simplest grocery, Bangkok residents can get everything easily within walking distance.

interesting. I think maybe because Bangkok has much more population than KL maybe thats why.

When I visited KL, the city felt more like a western layout style than a more eastern layout. hard to explain - sort of like it has a 'CBD' and suburbs etc...

I was there last January, took the train down to Surat Thani via Hua Hin. Didn't spend that much time in Bangkok though. Going back to Thailand next month, I'll try to see more of Bangkok this time.

I was there this January! We didn't spend that much time either - only 5 days, which seems alright, but there were so many things we haven't visited yet!! Have fun in Thailand next month !!

looking back at the grand palace before leaving











The old areas of Bangkok near the Grand Palace



Near the river area where I remember there was stalls selling smelly dried seafood!



Next stop, Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun)!! It's like a 2 minute ride across the river.



Approaching the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun)



Looking across the river to the Grand Palace area







The details and mosaics of this temple is amazing



Incredible Wat Arun



Skyscrapers across the river!! I think I'm looking towards the Silom area?

Dried seafood stalls near the riverside. It smells pretty weird!

Returning back from the old city towards the skyscraper filled part!







Baiyoke Tower in the distance. Traffic is busy as usual!



Various architecture styles on the hundreds of highrises in Bangkok



Longtail speedboat on the Chao Praya River



Amazing bridge from a river cruise



Grand Palace area at night from river cruise.



Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) at illuminated at night from a river cruise.

continuing on!!


Looking at Sukhumvit Road near Nana station!



Same road



The BTS map



Looking down on Bangkok traffic with typical pink taxi!



More Bangkok traffic on our walk



I think this is half way between Nana St and Ploen Chit St



At Siam Square station looking south (I think). Below is a empty/construction area. We were heading towards the MBK Centre



After a whole day of walking around, we exited and looking down from the walkway looks like



Lively Siam Paragon




krispy kreme donuts in Siam Paragon!!



Walking through the station with small shops/stalls on the side



Siam Station



Coming back to our hotel, we saw a film crew and a 'host' filming what I think seemed like a travel show! Anyone know who/what this is? Really interested!


more coming soon!
