A day off in Bangkok

Published on Thursday 21 October, 2010

This is my first photographic blog for Northern Ballet and I thought I'd start with a little insight into Bangkok. As we had very little time during our 4 days over there, I was only able to catch us on our day off, but we packed a lot in. I'll definitely be putting more dance photography on in my later blogs but for now here's 'A day off in Bangkok'.

View from mine & Christie's room on the 12th floor of the Dhusit Thani Hotel, Bangkok
Lumpini Park. Located directly opposite the hotel & where the 'magic dragons of Bangkok' are found.
