Thailand – Bangkok; Walking down the streets (1)

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 ┬ácity 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!)

Thailand – Bangkok, Visit to Damnoen Saduak Ratchaburi Floating Market (1)

Hi!!! This posting is about my trip to Thailand way back in the mid 2008. Yup. It been quite a while to write on this but it is better later than never sharing. =)

These were some of the views from one of the hotels located on Sukhumvit Rd taken in the morning which I stayed in.

Today, my trip was heading to the floating market in the Damnoen Saduak District in the Ratchaburi province. The trip was expected to take about 1hr to 1.5hrs but it all depends on the traffic out of Bangkok. Guess if I recalled, it took about 2hrs.
