This is Si Ayutthaya Road just on the corner of Dusit Zoo.

Very green area of Bangkok. Also have no idea where this is either. There are a lot of these old wooden stilt house
looking thigs. anyone know what these are and where this is?



Closer look at them
This is old Teak houses. I think there used to be a lot of them in Bangkok before, but they had to give way for newer development. There is still a lot of them on the countryside and in some parts of Bangkok like the Thonburi district. This picture is taken around Makkasan. Probably around the intersection of Phetchaburi Road and Sukhumvit Soi 3.

Near Siam Paragon - not sure what I'm looking at here
This is a small mall called Digital Gateway. It`s quite new and as you probably can tell by the name, has a lot of stores with digital stuff.

It`s true that you need a long time to explore Bangkok. I`ve stayed here together for almost a year, but still feel like I`m experiencing something new every day. The reason why I know these places is because they are around the area where I used to live.

Bangkok has a very special road system that consists of some large roads (Thanon), and from these roads there is a network of small streets (soi) that is usually dead ends. A good way to experience life of Bangkokians is to venture into these small sois (I`m not talking about the sois of Sukhumvit Road which are all newly developed). I also recommend Khao San Road at night to see the busy backpacker road. Here you can get everything, and it`s still quite cheap. The area around Sukhumvit 55 (Thong Lo) and Sukhumvit 63 (Ekkamai) is a popular bar district for upper-class Thais and is also worth a visit. Chatuchak Weekend Market is a must if you are here on a weekend and Red Sky Bar is the best sky bar in Bangkok.

Thanks for good pictures!

wow, thanks for all the place names!!

I guess the teak houses there are probably similar to the hutongs in Beijing? As in they're unique to the culture and slowly is disappearing due to developments.

And yea, I was surprised at how big Bangkok is, both in terms of size and things to do! I really hope to return one day!

More photos coming!

At one of the Skytrain stations - the typical wall embedded ticket machines



Looking below/out of one of the skytrain stations along Sukhumvit Rd



We arrived at Chit Lom station to just walk around. We ended up just walking along the skywalk looking around. Many luxury and high end hotels are located here.



Another modern skyscraper



The famous shrine below - very interesting!!



Bangkok traffic looking towards the Baiyoke Sky Tower from Chit Lom St skywalk



Looking the opposite direction with. Many overhead roads/tracks!



Towards Baiyoke Sky Tower again! Unfortunately, we didn't have time to go up the tower. Next time definately!!
