Out and about in Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand, is a hive of activity throughout the day and night, lots of sights, sounds and smells to keep one amused.  Below are some Bangkok photos taken during my January 2020 trip.  The lion’s share of photos are food related, after all, Bangkok, is known over the world for its street eats.

Silom district is the closest Bangkok gets to Wall Street and hosts may fiinancial institutions. After nightfall the small sois (side streets) come alive with people out for a good time (feature image on top is Silom Street).

Look around anywhere in Thailand and chances are you will see such portraits of the king displayed in offices, schools, banks or on the front of government buildings.

I’ve never seen beehive remnants for sale before.  Many firsts in Bangkok.

It’s a common sight to see people wearing surgical masks in Bangkok, the pollution can be bothersome.  Add the threat of a Corona virus and sales pick up a bit.
