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.
Another shot of the shrine.
Worshipers coming to pray and give offerings.
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.
Thanks for staying with me. If you are new here, welcome to my blog page. This is my 3rd series of my posting on my trip to Thaliand; Bangkok way back in 2008. If you have missed my earlier series, pls feel free to visit them and hope you enjoy reading them. =)
Ok… coming back here, this series is on my walk about in Bangkok city literally down the street (not whole but part of Bangkok) by foot and also by MRT after my trip on Chao Phraya river cruise.
It was already evening and we took the BTS (Bangkok Mass Transit System) to Siam Center using the BTS – Sukhumvit line.
A view from the BTS Chitlom station where the Erawan Shrine is located. More on that later.
We walked around the Chitlom area and you will be surprised to see stalls along the alleys.
Aren’t they colourful? Can’t remember what are they (been too long. LOL!)
Our simple dinner…
Their famous dessert; thap thim krop

Stayed tune for more on my series on walking down Bangkok streets.
