Urban Bangkok

We discovered a multi-layered city. Floating highways and hidden shrines, exalted royalty plastering the billboards and taxi boats roaring through the back street canals.

A taxi boat full speed ahead.

The Skywalk on Th Phra Ram I funneling shoppers from mall to mall.

Urban sculpture

The King and I.

One afternoon at the movies, we were taken aback when after the previews had finished the entire audience suddenly stood. The national anthem began to play alongside flashing images of the King in his youth. We stood too, paying our respects.

Next to the ferry pier food stalls hide from the monsoons.
