Dusit Zoo – don’t come here for the caged animals, come here for the beautiful grounds that attract wild birds!

It was mostly nostalgia for my younger backpacker days that made me want to spend the evening here.  It’s gotten out of control – seriously, KFC & Maccas?

They STILL sell fake IDs!  I can remember getting a fake press pass here in the mid 90’s that got me into Afghanistan as a journalist!

Tailor shops are everywhere but this one specializing in wedding gowns was pretty cool!
