Bangkok in the past

I suspect the previous thread is gone, so here's a new one. I wasn't here in the old days so it would be interesting to see and read what it was like. Please post pictures, info, nostalgia and stuff

Here's some..

WTC from Siam Square (???)


Mahboonkrong


Siam Center


Construction of Siam Discovery Center?


Building the skytrain in the late 90s

whoa, nice to see those old pics of Bangkok. Siam center was bigger in the past?
and whoa, the facade of MBK... somehow, i couldn't remember any of those even i was in Bangkok at that time. i guess that time, i just didn't care much about surroundings.

oh, i've noticed one thing that hasn't changed is the public bus. i think we still use the same models? of course with new models as well.

The second is easy, New Petch road, looking towards Pratunam. With Charn Issara II tower on the left side, not sure what the other one is called. Bangkok Tower maybe. But what year???
