A Bit of Bangkok

I had to go to Bangkok for some medical stuff. In my spare time I visited a couple of new places.

But first, it's election time in Bangkok. Time to elect a new governor.

One of many, many campaign posters. This is the incumbent, Democrat Sukhumbhand Paribatra. 

Siam Center, one of Bangkok's older shopping centers has been remodeled, again.
It now includes a branch of Mr Jones Orphanage, an upscale cake shop and milk bar.

Danger zone

It also includes a Magnum Café, an establishment dedicated to enhancing what must already be the world's richest chocolate coated ice cream bar.

The recently opened Sofitel has a wonderful restaurant and bar, L'apart on the 32nd floor. Views are lovely.

Two for one Bombay and Tonic during Happy Hour.

Looking east down Sukhumvit road.

Looking south with the Chao Phraya river barely visible in the distance.
