Urban adaptation in Bangkok

4 December, 2007

I’ve often caught trains through Bangkok and wondered at the level of activity going on on both sides of the railway.  I had never seen the scene from quite this angle though.  The clip below shows the level of adaptation to the urban environment and pragmatism of some of Bangkok’s poorest inhabitants.  One of the stereotypes about Thais is that they “bend with the breeze”.  This clip would seem to support that generalisation.
