Thailand – Bangkok; Walking down the streets (2)

Welcome back! Where were we? Oh yes… Ratchadamri Rd towards Rama 1 Rd.

On Ratchcadamri Rd, you can find the largest Central World which is the 6th largest shopping plaza and complex in the world but again, I am not into shopping. =P

Anyway, we arrived at the junction of the Ratchadamri Rd and Rama 1 Rd where you will find Erawan Shrine. It houses a statue of Phra Phrom, the Thai representation of the Hindu creation god Brahma. It is a popular tourist attraction.

It often features performances by resident Thai dance troupes, who are hired by worshipers in return for seeing their prayers at the shrine answered as seen below.

The elevated pedestrian crossing over Ratchadamri Rd and Rama 1 as the traffic there is very heavy.
