Dusk on Lake Ratchada at Benjakiti Park | Bangkok

Explored, April 25, 2011, #170


The latest addition to Bangkok's emaciated green scene, this 130-rai (20.8-hectare) park encircles a large lake on the former grounds of the Tobacco Monopoly, just behind the Queen Sirikit Convention Centre, and marks the queen's sixth cycle (72nd birthday). Another 300 rai (48 hectares) of former factory buildings is earmarked for transformation into a manmade rainforest, though it seems to be delayed. The park makes a pleasant walk between the Sukhumvit strip and the Lumphini area.


The four unusual towers you see on the righthand side comprise the Millenium Condominiums.


30 second exposure, f10, 10mm. Probably too much foreground, but I didn't want to crop and change the image dimensions.
