Bangkok, Thailand

I often forget how colorful and bright the vehicles in Bangkok are, until leaving for some time and returning.

Pink, green, yellow, red, and orange are all popular colors in a traffic jam in Bangkok!

    Clear day. No smog seen..

    Pictures like this remind me why I wouldn’t want to have a job and commute in a large city like Bangkok. Nuts!

    If one is only retired and only has to get out once in a while, fine, but to need to commute most days in a city like this would drive me cuckoo..

      I think this street where the MBK is located.

        Very close, but it’s right in front of Central World.

      I agree Dana, commutes can really be a pain!

    It is seven lanes towards Pratunam and one lane away from Pratunam. Look at the bus top right under the bridge.

    Totally agree that it is best to walk here, unless you are coming out of Big C in the one lane coming this way. The Pratunam is a great district to stay but the traffic is pretty bad around there.

    wow, Its something like the Indian traffic. How many lanes are there? They all seem in the same direction. they really must one big road?

      Not sure exactly how many lanes, but yah, it’s mostly a one way street – and one of the busiest shopping areas in Bangkok!

    I think it’s because we live in a (albeit growing very fast) town with relatively little traffic that I love traffic jams. They’ve taken on novelty value and we love arriving in Istanbul on the overnight intercity bus from Fethiye, right in the midst of rush hour. Looks great and you feel like you’ve hit life. 🙂

    I like the title “colorful traffic jam” the traffic jam is also eye catching view in Bangkok 🙂

      Yes, I always think it’s nice how colorful the traffic and especially the taxi cabs are in Bangkok!
