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.
Burnt Zen sign at Central World.
The main collapsed area of Central World.
Smashed sign in front of a closed-off entrance to the sky walk.
A burnt out MK restaurant next to a gutted mall in Siam.
Broken barrier near Siam Paragon
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.
