I’m a big supporter of walking, cycling and the Skytrain, that’s how I move around Bangkok.
An amazing 90 minute rain storm hit Bangkok today- this is the result as seen from my taxi, sidewalks were too flooded to walk.
This was one of those crazy storms that leads to localized flooding as the rainfall simply cannot drain fast enough- the water was almost knee deep in the streets and above ankle deep on the sidewalks.
A tough few hours for everyone as traffic was gridlocked, a terrible time to be on a motocye and the worst possible time to be one of the many food delivery men that use motocyes to make the deliveries.
The storm was gone an hour after this pic was taken and most streets drained quickly, but This is rain season, more storms to come.
