360° Bangkok

Here the pictures I took from, Baiyoke Tower II, a height of 300 m.  It was a little difficult to shot from this place due to  the  dirty of the outer windows and the pollution around Bangkok City. I used Nikon AF-S DX lens 18-55mm and 55-200 mm

Although many people complain about the traffic jam in Bangkok, the city has a good and very modern infrastructure.  In this photo you can see the spider net of high way.

Above the city, you can see the pollution coming from the traffic,
