Thread: Bangkok - 12 - 16 June 2012

  1. #1

    Default Bangkok - 12 - 16 June 2012

    I will be going down to Bangkok for a shopping trip and will be doing street photography. Night shots also.
    Will be bringing Canon 7D + 28mm f1.8 + 24-105mm f4L + Speedlight 580 EX II and lastly my tripod ( Suri R1004 + G20).

    Any advise on place where I can take photos? Places which I will CONFIRM go is
    1) MBK
    2) Platinum fashion mall
    3) Siam center - Madame Tussauds
    4) Chinatown


    Last year I went and was lucky to catch the cosplayers in action at Siam Center I dont think this round will be so lucky liao.

    Will be staying at Bangkok City Hotel - Ratchathewi BTS

    Anyone who is there during this time is MOST welcome to join me. Can PM me to arrange!

    if i were u, i leave my flash behind to save some weight.

    what is the entrance fee for Siam center - Madame Tussauds? Any idea? This looks new, since i last visited BKK in 2011.

    haha carrying all (plus your body, lens and tripod, it will be extra heavy already)

    ohh I never been to the HK one though I went there (the peak itself) once. Looks reasonable. Do post some photos if you were to go.

    There is nothing much to take at MBK, Platinum and Siam Centre. I've also asked for suggestions in my recent thread at:
    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/trave...otography.html

    Some good suggestions there. You might want to walk opposite Siam Centre to Siam Square area instead. I think you can capture more street there. I will be in BKK arnd 7-10 June. Just before you. Beware of the gruelling weather.

    the only floating market is outside Bangkok. Those in Bangkok are tourist traps.

    you will realise that the only customers are tourists and the people in the little boats sell souvenirs instead of veg, meat, etc.
