    wow, at different time and place, price is variable.
    Can u educate us on the diff types of durians found there ?

    dusit thani at night





    All night entertainment places on asna bucha day were closed. For example patpong area mostly dead like the agogo bars but the market vendors were open

    infamous black pagoda as seen in the documentary whores glory opening scene where they shine laser beams down at passers by



    At 12 am and it's totally dead



    Foodland supermarket smack right in silom has a great western restaurant along with mostly western food products and items being sold



    Pretty ok meal



    Anyway it's back to bangyai the next day.

    Time to walk thru the market talat bangyai. Pretty standard place for most market places all over LOS but at least this place isn't too close to BKK for it to be too touristy and not too far from BKK that you cannot access easily and quickly via taxi/mrt/van etc.













    The pizza vendor here was pretty good in making these pizzas

    Friend runs a pet grooming business where she fetches dogs from surrounding homes, cuts their fur/grooms them then sends them back to their owners homes. It's pretty tough work cos you need to drive thru the expressway.

    Her own dog. I think it's a poodle with pink nose and features with extremely long claws



    One of her customers dogs. After a bit of searching on the net it's a pomeranian breed.



    It's getting it's hair cut



    Almost done



    What a cutie it looks pretty good and cute after having its fur all shorn pretty short looks better than before



    2nd dog getting cut by the worker. I think it's the same breed even though this one looks different from the first



    Afterwards it's a drive to Wat Lam phraya and the floating market. Trip took pretty long cos of the long traffic jam as it was a religious holiday and a weekend.





    This was in the afternoon around 2pm was really hot and even though the floating market isn't as big as say amphawa or mae klong it does have its charm and it's not so touristy compared to mae klong.





    Our eating spot



    Satay with clams and prawns eaten with bare hands no soap in the toilets.



    One of the temples



    River tour boat ticketing booth. Closes at 3pm. Due to the long jam and after eating and lack of knowledge couldn't take this tour as it was 4pm





    Anyway you can feed the cat fishes surrounding the floating market



    Afterwards it's a drive to another location called the paseo park. It's similar to CDC crystal design centre as in a shopping mall surrounding by many eateries but paseo has a japanese theme thruout the entire area so it looks like you're in japan.

    Sakura flowers



    The jap restaurants there are standard ones found all over thailand.

    Did Chiangmai for a couple of days. Dejavu after 4 years, personally for me. Have a soft spot for Lanna culture. A sinkie crony resident there let me stay in one of his vacant condo units. Understand there is a core sinkie resident group (100? linked up in FB). Met up with 2 for eats, over DFS Ka Va Lan. Interesting characters to venture out in CNX, and mind you they are not old foggies type but still virile at 40+

    Nice quiet spot, at Chiangmai Business Park aptly called My Hip Condo 2 (next to Big C Extra) -with suburban feel, cafes and 3km across to Central Festival. Commute is easy, now with both Grab and Uber -instead of relying on songtaews or taxi tuk tuks. Grab is legit, but not Uber yet. Affordable thb60-80 across city, but allow up to 15mins wait.

    View from condo, across some lake and khuntoke restaurant



    One of the 2 24hr cafes, with apt name
