Bangkok – Chinatown

Between the Wat Pho Buddhist Temple and the Hua Lamphong station is Chinatown.  This area is full of character and culture.  Vendors took up most of the sidewalks and passageways, allowing single-file walking only.  The short walk was double in time due to many stops to capture the moment.

Decorations festooned the streets for the Chinese New Year's Eve that had just passed.
