Hello, it’s Michelle, back in the don’t kay siao house again with more Bangkok photos to share!
I have been to Bangkok quite a few times in the past few years but this trip was the first time that I ventured into Bangkok’s Chinatown. Being quite a fair distance from Bangkok central where I was stayed, I hailed a tuk-tuk to get there. It was a long way through lots of dark and gloomy streets before the tuk-tuk suddenly burst out into this bright and rowdy thoroughfare that instantly reminded me of Hong Kong! It was incredible! All the street hawkers were out there doing their thing, cooking up a storm and trying to tempt the hungry souls walking past them. After having my fill of tomyum soup, I eventually ended up in a quiet sidelane for desserts where the hawkers catered more to the residents rather than the tourists. If you haven’t been to Bangkok’s Chinatown yet, make sure you mark it down in your itinerary the next time!
Hi everyone, this is Michelle from Green Tea Fields, keeping you company for the next few days while Euphemia is partying it up in Bangkok! Euphemia and I met over the internet, I think, some time after my trip to Seoul earlier this April. Being big fans of both Seoul and film photography, we immediately bonded and have been chatting up a storm on Twitter ever since! And when she asked me to guest blog for her while she was away, I immediately said “YES”!
Today, I am going to share my photographs of the trip I made to Bangkok earlier this year. It was a quick three-day jaunt but I enjoyed being there for the first time since I started film photography. To me, Bangkok is a wonderfully atmospheric and gritty sort of city, and I naturally gravitated towards using a black and white film when I was deciding on the type of films to bring. I am not particularly a black and white film type of person but for once, the film was just screaming at me to pop it into the camera and I am so glad I did. These are some of my favourites from the roll, I hope you enjoy them and I will be back in a bit with more photographs, of bangkok in colour, the next time.
Yes, I’m back from the land of ‘Chob Mak’! I’ve been to Bangkok like a hundred times, okay, maybe not a hundred times, but I can say that everytime I visit it, it’s a total new experience. This time is no exception. A short tiny update on what went on during the 6 days.
First meal upon arriving in Bangkok! – Plantinium Mall, top floor.
Must have every Bangkok trip – MK Restaurant’s steamboat! – MBK Shopping mall.
Belgium waffles that I can eat ALL day long! *nom nom* – Plantinium Mall.
These egg tarts are THE best! So good that we had to have a few rounds of it during our entire trip! – They have a few outlets: which I would have to check and let you know.
