Really a good job.

It used to be a dusty and sun-scorched parking lot before the renovation.

Sanam Luang Bangkok,Thailand.
Sanam Luang (Thai: สนามหลวง) is an open field and public square in front of Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand. Sanam Luang is located in the Phra Nakhon district, the historic center of Bangkok.

Sanam Luang has been a multi-purpose area since Bangkok was founded, and the venue for Royal and official ceremonies in every reign. It has been a race track, a golf course, and the famous Weekend Market, which subsequently moved to Chatuchak Park.

At present, Sanam Luang is a park where people can relax in the historic heart of the city, while kite competitions, the ritual bathing of monks in Songkran Festival and the Royal Ploughing Ceremony are still carried out regularly every year.
