Bangkok, oriental city!

April 2014.

Some pictures I took during eight days in the brooding Thai capital and surroundings.

Enjoy it!

Wow! New thread......

Bangkok looks full on and chaotic? You sure get around, don't you?

Are you a Man United fan by any chance....?

It is chaotic. But there's order in chaos, and once you analysed that, it's an easy city to explore. Even at 40°C!

Not at all. I'm not even a big football fan. But there seems to be lots of Man United-fans in Bangkok, and even Liverpool-fans, as we noticed on cars.

How exciting! Traveling by water bus, taxi or ferry is such a great way to see a city - from an entirely different perspective....

Indeed. In the hectic and traffic-congested Bangkok, water boats on canals and on the Chao Phraya River are an essential way to get around. It's a great addidtion to BTS-skytrain, the MRT-metro and City Line/Airport link, which doesn't have service in the historic city center.
We've managed to rent a condo at the crossing of MRT, City Line and Khlong Saen Seap, which made travelling in the heat of this oriental metropolis a lot easier.

Taking boats in canal or Chaopraya river is good way to escape traffic jam on roads. In old day, canal and river are main transporations . It's pitty that many canals in BKK were filled and become road and some become sewer.


Saen Sap Canal 50 years ago
