Bangkok กรุงเทพมหานคร

Thailand's vast and fast-changing capital, Bangkok looms heavily over other cities in the country in its political, economic and cultural dominance. My focus of this regrettably short visit was on the central districts of Ko Ratanakosin and Banglamphu, home to the city's royal heritage and many of its foremost temples. Also included in this gallery are pictures from a day out to the touristy, but interesting floating market of Damnoen Saduak
