The many faces of Bangkok


Bangkok may be famous as a modern city with high-rise buildings, traffic jams and shopping malls but the other face of Bangkok is still the authentic oriental city it was in days long gone by. The old days Bangkok was know as Krungthep and a kind of "Venice of Asia" with many canals (klongs) for transport. Well a part of the canals are still in Bangkok and still used for transport with boats as public transport busses. This are 2 boat-busses at Klong Seang Seap.
