Graffiti photo shoot in the non touristic part of Bangkok

In the vicinity of the well-known shopping district of Siam Square, we decided to walk away from the tourist area and discover the area. Walking an imaginable rectangle of a few kilometers back to our hotel where we passed by a busy playground.

No luxury or modern apartments here yet, but local communities in budget housing. The playground is decorated with graffiti which seems to attract the interest of photographers and ladies posing. We join in and Kristel poses in front of some colored tires. In the middle youngsters are playing soccer and Sepak Takraw typical Thai sport, it cannot become more genuine as this.

In de omgeving van he drukke winkeldistrict van Siam Square, besloten we weg te wandelen van het toeristengebied en de lokale omgeving te verkennen. We wandelden een denkbeeldige rechthoek van enkele kilometers terug naar ons hotel. Onder weg kwamen we voorbij een speelplein. 

Nog geen luxe appartementen hier, maar lokale gemeenschappen in lagere prijsklasse huizen. Het speelplein was omringt door graffiti wat amateur fotograven met vrouwelijke modellen aantrok. Kristel deed mee en poseerde bij enkele gekleurde autobanden. In het midden spelen jongeren voetbal en Sepak Takraw, een typische Thaise sport, het lokale gevoel kan niet echter worden als dit.

  1. Lots of good street art paintings here. Some of them are very talented. It would be so good if some of the artists got a job using their talent, and could move up in the world a bit.
