Bangkok photos gallery

No visit to Thailand is complete without Bangkok photos in your collection. It is a pulsating, multi-faceted city with plenty of amazing sights, so you had better have your camera ready.

Your photos of Bangkok might include surreal temples, charming hidden canals, people, street life or the plain bizarre, such as you would find on Khao San road. Wherever you are in Bangkok photos to impress your friends can easily be captured.

Despite it’s reputation as a congested chaotic city Bangkok has plenty to offer the photographer from photos of popular sites to improptu snaps of everyday life.

We’ve tried to capture some of the essence of this busy and fascinating city with this small collection of Bangkok photos. They include the must-see places and some of the off-beat characteristics of the city. Click on any of the images below and enjoy the slide show.

Notes on taking pictures in Bangkok
Remember to be mindful of Buddhist customs when taking pictures in Bangkok. Many temples are now considered tourist attractions but be aware of restrictions on taking pictures of certain interiors, such as the Emerald Buddha, or using flash on sensitive murals. Dress appropriately when you enter a temple, and do not climb over walls or religious structures.

Bangkok has plenty of photographic shops where you can down load your pictures of Bangkok onto disks, or stock up on film and supplies. You may even find yourself shopping for a new camera or accessories and many of the shops offer fantastic bargains.

Thais themselves love being photographed and won’t mind but it’s polite to ask first (in Thai;‘Tai ruup dai mai krup/ka’). The King of Thailand is himself a keen and accomplished photographer.

Bangkok photos are an essential part of your trip to Thailand and there is plenty of sights. The light is best before 10am after which it can get hazy. It’s relatively safe to wander around freely displaying your camera but thieves do sometimes target tourists in busy areas.
