More practicing for the boat race in Nan
Two more photo of the boat race practicing near the main bridge in Nan city. It is amazing to see the difference between some boats. I see like running. When I run at every stop my all body comes to a stop more or less. When a runner is running his all body moves with the pace of his legs.
It is with the boats the same. Some boats seems to dive a bit in the water when the paddles go in to water. Other boats seems to "fly" over the water. Amazing to see, what a art!
At Thanon Talat Gao (the old market street) is Lampang's Weekend market when at every Saturday and Sunday the street is closed for traffic from 16:00 to 22:00 and is transformed into a lovely street market.
In the old days the street was called Kad Kong Ta (the market on the road by the port) or Talad Chin (the Chinese Market). Nowadays the street is home to many beautiful heritage buildings and Chinese shop houses. The perfect place for a market like this. Of course at least 50% of the market is food and 97% of the visitors are local Thai. See also Lampang's Kad Kong Ta Salking Street @ Sanuk
I have been a few days in Bangkok again. I love to go and stay in Bangkok but I also always happy to leave Bangkok again. After more as 15 years I still have a hate & love relationship with Bangkok. So I did stay in the area of Pratunam and walked around a little bit in the small streets (soi's) with many small shops and restaurants. In the evening I had diner at the famous Baiyoke Tower at 76th floor. Following are some photos I took while staying in Bangkok.
