John's Asia trip (part 2): BANGKOK, let's play tourists

These photos were taken by the banned London-based former Lithuanian forumer John. He originally posted them in SSP where he is known as Jonas. I was with him on this trip together with Blimey and, as John is banned here (unjustly in my view but that's another story....), then it falls to me to post them here.

Let's have a tour around the Royal Palace (a must see tourist spot in BKK) and few other spots


1.
The Royal Palace, one of the main tourist destinations

16.
The King of Thailand. He is the most respected person in the country


17.
Most of the taxis are rather new Toyota Corollas which are produced locally (as well as some other Japanese car brands) which makes them cheper and more affordable


18.


19.
Reclining Buddha


20.
Not too small, is he?


21.

Back to Khaosan Road, it's Friday night and bars are packed. Another long day is coming tomorrow...


25.
A typical side street around Khaosan Road


26.
At a local food store


27.
Traveling in a taxi. Bangkok's got loads and loads of newly built massive freeways which are meant to solve its traffic problems. But does it? Hell NO! Traffic is crazy and even hundreds of kilometres of new highways will hardly change it. Decent pubic transport and various restrictions on car ownership is the only solution


28.
Yellow is the color of Monarchy. People wearing yellow t-shirts show their love and support to their country


29.


30.
We are travelling to Bayoke Tower (tallest building in Bangkok) where we'll observe Bangkok from the height of about 300m


31.
Here we are, Bangkok from the height of 300m (that's nearly 1000ft)


More views from Bayoke in another topic
