Sawadeekap - Welcome to the land of smile

I was having a 8 days vacation in the land of smile - Thailand. I left KL for Bangkok on June 2nd... The flight took around 2 hours 10 mins.

Before 15 mins to landing... we have already on the top of delta Menam Chao phraya.

Let's zoom in further to see what is the square boxes... It's paddy field...

The flight continued to move forward and the scenery turned from the Paddy Field to the high density city scene... This city named Krung Thep Maha Nakhon Slowly we could see the skyscrapers which is like some matches boxes.

City of Bangkok - Aerial view
So anyone of you know how big is the Bangkok? According to Wikipedia records... Bangkok is about  7,761.50 km2
Can you measure?
We touched down after flown by city of Bangkok. Once we completed the immigration clearance and headed to grab a taxi to our hotel @ downtown. 

We were welcomed by the well known Bangkok jam...

Traffic Jam @ Bangkok
In regardless of the jam, i was enjoying taking pictures of the city and there is one building that drawn my attention... 



This is the tallest building in Bangkok : The Baiyoke Tower (85 floors). This building structure looks like the US bank Tower in Los Angeles USA.

Anyway, we settled our accommodation and headed out for food @ Siam Paragon.
