I’ve just spent a few days in Bangkok, meeting up with some friends whilst waiting to fly down to Koh Samui. Whilst wondering around the city, I took a few shots of the damage caused as a result of the recent political protests and subsequent riots.

It’s extremely sad to see the destruction that was caused to some of my favourite parts of Bangkok but on a brighter note, it is also extremely heart-warming to see the response from the Thai people who seem intent on rebuilding and getting the city back on track as quickly as possible.

I’ll do a follow up post to this with some images of the rebuilding process.
