Thank you!

@seldomseen
I use a Canon 350D camera which was one of the most popular entry level DSLRs back in 2005-2006 accompanied with relevant entry level lenses. I'm thinking of getting something new but owing to my current financial situation I will have to postpone this for at least a year or so.

For taking pictures of the people. I'm sure that if you asked, they would gladly pose for you.

Thanks, although I have never really looked into this part of the world I truly enjoy how you do your photo thread, feels a bit like being in the city, and kudos for the explanations with each picture, it always makes them much more interesting to look at.

If only more photo threads on here were like that though...

Thank you, gentlemen.

More photos shall come

234. Sukhumvit Soi 4. It is one of the busiest sois in this area. Certainly not least due to the presence of the famous Bangkok establishment known as Nana Plaza. It is a building packed with go-go bars (a bit similar to European/American style strip-clubs but supposedly the girls are allowed to leave and join their customers in their private surroundings). In other words it is one of the biggest and most famous red-light districts in Bangkok (and the world, for that matter). It doesn't look like it in the day but we'll be back there in the night to have another look


235.


236.


237.


238.


239.

240. As the night falls Sukhumvit road gets more vibrant. You'll see girls and ladyboys chatting-up [male] passers by. I did see quite a few African girls there. Some very beautiful ones too. As the night falls Sukhumvit road exposes what Bangkok is famous for: nightlife and entertainment including loads of very beautiful women (and ladyboys too ). Not to be matched by any city anywhere on this planet. Ever.


241. Sukhumvit Road


242. Street markets on Sukhumvit road will be packing up later in the evening and give up the space for street restaurants


243.


244.


245. Beef, Pork or Chicken snack (Satay, Kebeb... whichever way you call it). It ocsts 10THB for one and usually takes 5-6 to have a decent meal. Extremely tasty.


246.

247. Pomelo fruits. Those are perhaps my favorite fruits of all. Just like grapefruits but larger and sweeter. Eating too much, however, may cause your stomach to go a little nuts


248. Lots of movement and action in Sukhumvit Soi 4 near Nana Entertainment Plaza. This place turns extremely lively at night. The old guy seems happy and lost among all those ladies (and ladyboys). I wonder if his family know what he's up to?


259. Soi 4 near Nana Hotel. The girls (or are they ladyboys?) standing on the sidewalk and trying to win attention from passers by. They don't like cameras though. Once they noticed me pointing my camera at them they immediately turned around and/or covered their faces. Therefore engaging in this kind of Bangkok night craze photography may be a little uneasy. You'll need a good camera that, unlike mine, can handle extremely high ISO values (3200+)


260. In case there would be some health issues medicines are sold right on the street in Sukhumvit road. However I didn't try them and have no idea if they work. I'm pretty sure they are counterfeit

It's about midnight. A great time to go for a walk...

261. Sukhumvit road. I have no clue why this guy was standing like this. He was just standing topless and demonstrating his belly which made him look like pregnant. He must have smoked something strong


262.
