Old traditions in modern Bangkok

Traveling in Thailand
Blessing ceremony at construction site in Bangkok, Thailand

While walking in Bangkok, if you look between the facade, you will see another world going on. Like here at soi 20 of Sukhumvit, in between all the modern high tech developments in Bangkok the old fashioned traditions are not lost. This time the merit making of the beginning of the building of another new high-rise building. It is the rising of the first pole for the building and in the hole for the pole so coins and flowers will be put down.

The World Is My Oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
