    Lovely pics plus I’ve learned to beware of falling elephants and not to squeeze that man’s ducks ๐Ÿ˜€

    These are great! I’ve never thought about going to Bangkok before, but I might add it to my travel wish-list now! How long were you there?

    Love the pictures, I have lived in Thailand for seven years and these pics really captured the Thainess. Were these taken in Yaowarat/Chinatown?

      Thank you! Yes, most of these were taken in the area around Yaowarat – it’s my favourite part of the city.

    Love your photos! Bangkok is, hands down, one of the most intriguing and photogenic cities I’ve spent time in.. including just last month. The incredible expanse of displays honoring the late King was breathtaking (I captured just a smidgen in my blog too).
    Great shot of the elephant mural. I saw it too but my guess is they’re copulating vertically ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great shots! The details are striking. Reminds us that we need to visit! That image of all the bikes really highlights the culture imo. Very Thai.
    If you wouldn’t mind, we’d love feedback on our pictures! Here’s our latest bunch: http://wp.me/p8BRPb-40 . Cheers!

    I didn’t even know that Bangkok had a Chinatown. Enlightening. Loved seeing the Chinese translations of the food for sale!
