My Trip to Bangkok, Capital of Thailand

2010-02-02 13

A short review on the places I’ve been in my recent trip to Bangkok and sharing some information and tips on travelling and shopping guide! And of course some photos from these locations.

It was my first trip to Bangkok, Capital of Thailand, with my friends. It was my best trip as compared to other countries. When I reached their airport (Suvarnabhumi Airport), I was amazed that the new airport was so beautiful and the interior/exterior designs for the whole airport were simply impressive. I couldn’t resist myself but to take out my LC-A+ and have a few shots there.

Took a cab to my hotel which is located near Chit Lom (an area located in Bangkok where you can find, lots of shopping malls, congested traffic, roadside hawker, places for hangover and the nightlife of bangkok). What I saw from my eyes were wires and lamp post all over the city and of course human traffic! It was really an eye opener for me to see all those things that I couldn’t see it in my own country.

I’ve decided to went over to Bangkok Lomography Embassy as I tell myself is a must-go when you’re in Bangkok. So I took a train (BTS Skytrain) to a place called Prompong. It was quite far to walk from Prompong station to Bangkok Lomo Embassy and the map I took was not detailed enough, went around asking where’s it.. Finally I found the place and it’s actually a small terrace house located at a small corner. Went up to the embassy and saw a lady with short hair, she’s very nice and helpful. Stay around at the embassy for quite sometimes to tryout all the lomo cameras :DD

Afterwhich, I went down to Chinatown, the stalls over there were selling items in bulk at COST PRICE!! YES COST PRICE!!! If you’re gonna get souvenirs for your family and friends and want to save the hassle from going around to search, Chinatown is the best place for you :D The stalls usually close in the late afternoon so you better set off early from your hotel!

The last place that I went was Chatuchak Weekend Market (another must-go location), located at Mo Chit, it’s possibly the biggest and most famous markets in the world with over 15,000 stalls and more than 200,000 visitors every Saturday and Sunday. If you gonna stop by every single shop, you’ll need at least 2-3 days to do so haha. Male and female apparel over there were selling at a very low price as there’s competitions among shops but if you saw something that fancy you, you better quickly set your mind and buy it, else you will have difficulties going back to the same shop again (this applies to me haha!).

It’s a very good experience for me as I’ve learned their culture and lifestyle through my LC-A+ with a lomo style. I love Bangkok :DD

    A Hunt for Curios and Wonderful Patterns

    Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
