Random photos of my October 2011 visit to Bangkok, one of my favourite cities in the world. Visited the Shrine of Goddess Tubtim for the first time - this is Bangkok's penis shrine...people come here to pray for fertility, hidden at a corner of Swissotel Nai Lert near Chit Lom station at the heart of the city. Dropped by the Victory and Democracy Monuments as well - always love their magnificence whenever I passed by them on my annual visits to Bangkok. Also visited Khao San Road many years after my previous visit. No, too old for backpacker districts but it's fun to see what has changed (nothing!).
