Friends I will be in Bangkok for a month from 22nd of this month.
I will be busy during days with my work, but the nights are mine!
Please advice where I should go to do night street photography.
And if anyone of you lives there, lets meet up!
Dear Sir, Mr. Sanj
Yes, I am Native in Bangkok and live in Bangkok for 25 years, Before Move to Study and work in North Carolina since 1974 = that another 39 years.---And I go back home every 2 years, Yes, My Home in suburb of Bangkok too. Yes, Bangkok is one of the most beautiful city/ country in this world, But Past 5 Years, The Economic in Thailand/ Bangkok are so bad----Be careful about to go any where, special in the Night time with your Camera equipment---You might lost your equipment to 2-3 bad guys in the night of Bangkok--If you Lucky, In the Worst case you might lose your Life too----Yes, My Suggestion, When you stay in the Hotel in Bangkok, Try to be friend with the Hotel manager, and ask where to go in the night time in Bangkok, But ask the manager to hire the out of duty/ the Security staffs in that hotel and pay him as your body guard and the tour-guide too. Yes, Although I am Native in Thailand and in Bangkok--I must go with my friend 2-3 of my friends, when I go to shoot the Night time or early morning Photos. Yes, 3 months ago, Sad new that one of the Lady, from England = she is the Newspaper Press/ Photographer---She lose her Life in Bangkok and all of her equipment are gone too---And 4 day later, The Police find her body 50 Kilos from Bangkok.
Sorry, I tell you the truth of this Bad news----Yes, When I go alone in the night of Bangkok, I just use my Cheap Point and shoot Canon Camera = $ 150 US Dollars, And If the Bad people want my camera, I just give them, but ask for the used memory card, and give them the new empty card Plus All the US Dollars that I have less than 50 Dollars in my pocket---At least, I have the Night Photos in Bangkok.
Here the Day Photos in Thailand----
Nice to talk to you.

NO, NO, NO---"And if anyone of you lives there, lets meet up! "---No, NO, No---You Should Trust The Hotel Manager ---But Get His/ Her Name and Their address/ Phone in writing and give the Copy to the place that you work for---Incase of you are the missing person. With Our Camera Equipment = cost 3-5 years of Thai Labor salary, I will not trust any one.
