Bangkok is a city which is a true amalgamation of the old and the new, the past and the present. The city has some of the most fantastic cultural and historic architecture but at the same time it is home to really tall sky scrapers.
I was in Bangkok (alone) for a week last year and I was really happy to go click-crazy. I must've easily walked 10 km each day exploring different parts of Bankok, the old, the crazy and the most peaceful.
I got this blue hour shot of the Bangkok skyline from the very quite
Lumphini Park and I've been wanting to upload this revised version
for a long time. Today, I finally got time to work on this image and
here is the final result. Hope you guys like it.
About Lumphini Park
Lumphini Park is a 360-rai (57.6-hectare (142-acre)) park in Bangkok, Thailand. This park offers rare open public space, trees and playgrounds in the Thai capital and contains an artificial lake where visitors can rent a variety of boats. Paths around the park totalling approximately 2.5 km in length are a popular area for evening joggers. Officially, cycling is only permitted during the day between the times of 5am to 3pm. There is a smoking ban throughout the park, and dogs are not allowed.
Bangkok is the capital, largest urban area and primary city of Thailand. Known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon , meaning "city of angels" for short, it was originally a small trading post on the west bank of the lower Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom. It became the capital in 1768 after the destruction of Ayutthaya by Burmese invaders. However, the current Rattanakosin Kingdom did not begin until 1782, when the capital was moved to the east bank of the river by Rama I following the death of King Taksin. The city is more formally called "Phra Nakhon" referring to the original boundaries of the 18th century, while the name Krungthep Mahanakorn includes the urban areas which have since grown. Foreigners generally call the city by its original name of Bangkok.
