We took a trip out to Wat Don Wai on the west side of #Bangkok near Mahidol University and enjoyed wandering around the riverside market. Highly reccommended for travellers to see a genuine thai river market.
Ive started a bit of a new project called #youngatheart or #richardcrookesyoungatheart so expect to see mch more content around my blog.
Enjoy the video
A common site at almost every intersection…..the floral garland sellers walking up and down the lines of traffic selling their wares. Part of the real atmosphere of Bangkok life.

Sitting in traffic, as anyone knows who lives in Bangkok, is something you just have to get used to. No wonder Thailand is one of the most active social media countries. You do have to find something to do to while away the hours.
This morning was no exception but Bangkok always delivers with something unusual to marvel at. I snapped this from the car as I was stuck at the lights. I was going nowhere…but this guy was different.

Here’s a short clip of a great little floating market at Klong Lat Mayom on the outskirts of Bkk… one of the best ones I’ve visited – beautiful
It’s quite a while since I posted… very sorry about that.
Here’s something for you though… a slow ride in a slow boat…
You really have to take your hat off to whoever it was whose idea was to balance one of these huge engines precariously high on the back of an oversize canoe and hats off to the men who throw them around nonchalantly with one hand while flying up and down the choppy ChaoPhraya sitting perched on wooden stools only inches away from the unguarded fanbelts. If you’ve been to Bangkok and seen these I’m sure you wont have forgotten. They never cease to amaze me. A beautiful demonstration of human ingenuity.
