The Bangkok Flooding, Photos From The Ground

A Stickman Special

A recount of reports about the flooding in Thailand in late 2011. The mainstream media’s coverage of Bangkok flooding covered the entire city, whereas I concentrated only what happened in the downtown area – where many foreigners live, work and play.

Original introduction

With so much worry and confusion from the reports coming out of Bangkok about the flooding, I have decided to provide running updates of what’s going on in downtown Bangkok at the moment.

These updates will primarily be about what’s happening on Sukhumvit Road, Silom and places of interest to expats and frequent visitors to these areas i.e. the venues I frequently mention and cover in my weekly column. Don’t look at these updates as anything more than information on how things are in downtown Bangkok. If you have a home in the far flung suburbs of Bangkok, or you want to know what is happening in Ayutthaya or any other province, sorry, I’m not covering that. This is simply updates with photos of what is happening in downtown Bangkok now.
