    So this isn't a temple? What could it be?

    They look like what Thais call a 'Sala'. Kind of like a gazebo. Used a lot in Thailand at countryside bus stops or at boat landing stages either public or private.

    And it definitely will not be there any more, the land would have been further developed by now.

    If he's doing a collection of ''then and now'' pics then you can understand his desire to seek out these locations.

    But as said here, some will be unrecognisable

    I may soon do my own Bangkok then and now pics, I got a lot from 1997-99 with me posing and smiling. If I did the same now at the same locations it would even show how my teeth have changed over the years too

    I hope the OP still pops in to see if he's got an answer to his questions? Last online 16-12-2016. I came across this site which might help him. Film locations for The Man With the Golden Gun (1974)

    The trail of Scaramanga leads to Bangkok, and a boat chase through the klongs, the network of canals criss-crossing the city. The karate school is Muang Boran, the Ancient City, the world’s largest outdoor museum, housing scaled-down versions of the famous buildings and temples of Bangkok. It’s about 20 miles east of town on Sukhumvit Highway in Changwat Samut Prakan.
    The kickboxing match, at which Bond first meets Scaramanga, was filmed in Bangkok’s Ratchadamnoen Stadium, Ratchadamnoen Nok Road (tel: 281.4205).
    But, most famously, Scaramanga’s island hideout is Khow-Ping-Kan, one of a chain of tiny jungle-covered limestone pillars in Phang Nga Bay at Phuket, on the tip of the Malay peninsula. At the time of filming, a remote and undiscovered paradise, it’s now overrun by tourists taking the 54 mile bus journey, north from Phuket Town, and the boat trip out to see ‘James Bond Island’.

    Thanks for Your response! I know this site of course, but it will not help regarding my special problem ...

    Best regards, Thomas

In my opinion it's not “Damnoen Saduak”, because I don't believe that it was a big tourist spot already in 1974 to take tourists 100 km from Bangkok there. Another reason for me is, that it would have been difficult to carry all the filming crew and material this long way outside Bangkok for such a small scene. Third reason for me is, that the khlong in the movie looks smaller than in reality. In my opinion it's Bangkok - but where?
    You may be wrong.
    Bond escapes from the Karate School at Muang Boran with the aid of Lt. Hip and his martial art expert nieces and the ensuing boat chase continues on to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market (below) which is over 100km away! From there it goes down Klong Dan (60 minutes) with just about everyone apart from Bond ending up in the water.

    No, it's not Damnoen Saduak! I wrote about the TV production team who was there at the wanted location during filming. They were in Bangkok at the location, not in Damnoen Saduak.

    It's a very big problem - all the common web sites are wrong or could not help.

    You're adamant but all my trawling says you're wrong. I'm sure if it wasn't Damnoen Saduak market someone would have corrected that fact by now.

    It's not a fact, it's a mystery since many many years. I am working on that location search for years now ...

    Well at least thomas is now starting to get somewhere.

    I will say one thing though, those fight scenes are pretty terrible

    Hello Forum!

    I have a new topic regarding the James Bond movie "The Man With The Golden Gun":

    Maybe You could help me with the following screenshots from the movie. Which street is this?

    We are in Bangkok in 1974 and see the Police cars passing a corner with a Police hut.

    My idea was Sam Liam Din Daeng Junction and the cars coming down Ratchawithi Road from Victory Monument southwards to Ratchaprarop Road. But in this case the Victory Monument would be visible in the back of the first screenshot, which is not ... Any idea?









    Thanks for Your help!

    Best regards, Thomas

    Try Ratchadamnoen Nok Rd or Phitsanolok Rd.

    Started my search here...The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) - Filming Locations - IMDb
