This entire road was blocked off by protestors for almost two months. Fortunately, the protestors have now decided to return the streets to the public and congregate at a park to protest, rather than try to bring Bangkok to a standstill.
Here are some pictures of this famous junction, taken from the overhead skywalk.
It wasn't crowded. Not much traffic.
On the right is Amarin plaza.
Very clear road, which was supposed to be unusual.
For this trip, we stayed at Courtyard by Marriott, which was a short walk away from this famous junction. In fact I am publishing this blog from the comfort of my hotel room!
