White plaster, geometric patterns on tiles, red lanterns.
Phra Sumen Fort is one of two last bastions build by Rama I which have been preserved. At the end of 18th century city walls and 14 forts surrounded Bangkok.
I have been visiting Georgetown repeatedly. It is a hot place all year. The evenings offer pleasant cooling.
Famous Khao San in Banglamphu area is short street with overpriced backpacker hotels. The shopping is much more interesting than a stay overnight there.

Auto rickshaw is a cult vehicle in Asia. The three wheeled cart with engine is the most efficient and economical means of transport in the largest cities in India.
The ordinary bus line 68 ( ticket 6,50 baht ) used to be green – white.
The passangers of green-white buses have to jump on the bus. The drivers stop only for several seconds at the bus stops. Will the repainted bus change a bad reputation ? I doubt it. Definitely the orange bus is not for old people 🙂
By the way, if you feel young the line #68 is between Bang Pa Kaew and Bang Lamphu.
One of the Bangkok’s squares which I pass frequently. May storms herald approaching rainy season in Thailand.

If you like tuk tuk’s, you should take a joyride by bajaj in Jakarta. The entire range of city’s new experiences is gauranteed. Just be ready ! The seat is less comfortable than in Thailand, the visibility very limited and the car exhaust depressing.
