    Bangkok Landmarks & Monuments, Do You Know Them?

    As I seem to begoing to Bangkok quite a lot I thought I would take some photos whilst I am there, obviously not having any idea of what is what and what is where in Bangkok I shall leave it to you to guess what and where the landmark or monument is.

    So first up looks like part of a Templed perhaps? seems to have large grounds around it, wonder how much that land sells for

    Speaking of the mega-bridge though, there's a good episode of Nat. Geo. Megabuilders about it being built.

    Hualampong.

    The prison is Maha Chai.

    The roundabout just up past Hualampong on the way to Worajak, where the freelancers hangout.

    2/3 for DD and top marks to CM.

    I've been told the name of that roundabout hundreds of times but always forget.
    Hookers Roundabout will do just fine.

    Think it's called Thaksin roundabout.
    Disgusting place with loads of 500 baht hookers and 100baht short-time rooms

    --EDIT--

    Can confirm it is King Thaksin roundabout.
    Please do not PM for details of the hookers and rooms BTW. I know what a dirty lot you are. I am a married man!
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.
