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. :bsmilie:

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!

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

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.

Hi TS, chinatown very good place to do street photography but it can get extremely congested...was there during CNY, many ang mohs setup tripod there to capture the festivities
for floating market, its only open in the morning, so best is wake up early, take cab go down

Im going bangkok tomorrow, just nice see this thread got new places can explore (terminal21 & asiatique)
This time imma just bring 10-22 and 35L, didnt really use my 24-105L much 3months back when I went

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/travel-photography/1086666-bangkok-street-photography.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.
