Highlights of Pictures Tweeted on 10 November in Bangkok

November 10, 2013


I had another of those long days in Bangkok tweeting pictures live from various events. It started with a festival parade at Wat Saket, followed by a Remembrance Day service at the British Embassy, Red Shirt protests at Ratchaprasong and finally the anti-amnesty protests on Ratchadamnoen Avenue. These are some of the highlights of the pictures that I tweeted during the day:

    Heading to BKK on Thursday with my parents. Am wondering how’s the protest situation there. Staying in holiday inn Bangkok. Is the traffic situation really bad as it’s likely I need to take cab around with my elderly folks. Should I cancel my trip? Thanks!

      Traffic is always bad in Bangkok. There have been protests on the streets but they usually pass after an hour or so. The protest sites are all on Ratchadamnoen Avenue. Easy for you to avoid as there are no malls there. I feel perfectly safe here. I was cycling around Bangkok yesterday without a worry. But, we have gone from an anti-amnesty protest to a group of people wanting to topple the government. Anything could happen next. If you are really worried then I suggest you cancel.
