A riot free Bangkok

 

My last stop on my short and sweet South-East Asian adventure turned out to be Bangkok due to cheap as flights. Luckily Thai new years was in full force which happens to involve vast amounts of water getting thrown about. This did mean minimal photo time, but it was a good time to drink and be merry. Fortunately there was a moratorium on rioting. Here be photos.R0001189Fire brigade doing their bit. R0001192Plush toy with swagger.R0001209Cool character in Chinatown.

Ghost town

Reminiscent of the shining, this old and abandoned french town is located on top of a big mountain just outside of Kampot in Cambodia. Apparently it was to be the Grand Palace and Casino, built for the colonial French settlers to live large and frolic in their amazing wealth. But work on it was abandoned in the 1940’s leaving behind an austere shell which was destined to become a sort after Cambodian wedding location. There is an even creepier and colossal new casino and hotel which is home to Cambodia’s largest empty car park.
