Last Day in Bangkok

Last day in Bangkok, for now. A day on the Chao Phraya and the amulet market. Being on the river is one of my favorite things to do in Bangkok. Always see interesting people and lots of cool long tail boats. I was amazed that the sprawling amulet market had been decimated.  In the past, the sidewalks were jammed with sellers and buyers. But now almost no sellers were hocking their wares. The government must have prohibited them from selling on the streets, no doubt to protect the few amulet shops in that area.
