    Default My first visit to Bangkok

    Hi,

    Was in Bangkok this week, and would like to share a few of my pictures taken there.

    You comments are welcomed.

    Thanks!

    Roy

    2. One of the many guardian statues on the Grand Palace.

    Hi Roy

    I like Shots 4 & 6. I think the rest of the architectural shots will look much better if you shoot them shortly after sunrise or before sunset depending on the facing of these buildings. (This may not be possible if you go on a tour though.)

    bangkok is a good place for shopping...service staff are generally more friendly (than wat you find in singapore), and food are cheaper...

    Thanks for the feedback. I was lucky to have a clear blue sky the day I went for the city tour.

    While the hot overhead sun created harsh shadows that are not too much help on the 2nd picture, I thought it actually brought out the texture of the roof/structures very well in the 5th and 7th pictures.

    My favourite shots are also 4th and 6th.

    I like the photo of the guy sketching. The sketch is very clear in the photo and the lighting is very comfortable. The guy in the mirror photo is nice too.

    The knife above the 2 old lady is a little distracting for the pic. Kinda worried for them... dunno why.

    I agree that the people in Thailand are very friendly and helpful.

    Locals often offered help and advice on giving directions and suggestions for places to visit. The impression I've got is that the entire city is very active in promoting Bangkok to the tourists.

    The fun part is, the locals usually think that I am a thai also, when they se me travelling with my American colleagues. So they always speak to me in Thai first.

    Thanks for your comments. You have sharp eyes to have noticed the knife. I cannot remember if the figure was a statue or a painting n the wall. I guess all such figures in the Grand Palace are of a protecting nature, so we do not have to worry for them.
