I went to this place called the artist house..search in trip advisor. . its quite a cool place.. For locals. N it's beside a river with boats going to n fro. .. basically the main attraction is the puppet play.. but surrounding are places with good snaps. Hope this helps. .

From Kanchanaburi, take the train all the way to Nam Tok, then tuk tuk out to Erawan. Wait for red bus to pick u up from the 7-11. The bus will bring u all the way up to Death Railway museum. That's the best place for me to shoot and hike, including while inside the train. :D

I don't think there is such a place call safe. Just need to be careful and avoid certain places if you find uncomfortable. When a big dslr hanging around your neck, you do stick out like a sore thumb. Once upon a time, they will think you are Japanese. Today they think you are from China. Haha

It's a matter of how u dress-up yourself IMHO. I've been to Bangkok 3 years consecutively, and I have no issues at the moment. Usually, I'll just carry a lady-like handbag just nice to fit in the DLSR with lens attached and a bottle of water. Dress-up like you're staying there for years.

Hope that helps.

Can consider this place - The Deck, for shooting Wat Arun

Yes! Read a lot of good review on the sunset at the deck! probable I will be there in my upcoming trip.

By the way do you have to make reservation?

that is good. it is really that you decide to go else where. although development had been done over the years, that area is still far from safe.

there are a lot of places for photo shoot but really need to see what you want. and if you decide to go to the Jatujak weekend market (Chatuchak weekend market) please do keep your wallet carefully. the pickpockets there are all well dressed and you were expect is them. I had a near-miss few years back where he kena my kicks.

if you are a big adventurous, you may consider travelling to ayuthaya province, nakhom pathom province or nearby for photo taking. =)

Be careful of the busy streets, either they will cut your bag or pickpockets.
Put your dollars and cents on your front jeans pocket.
