Google Earth

First, best wishes for 2008 to anyone reading this. I have a busy day ahead ending up at midnight at a hotel dinner. I had a quick, one hour, walk along the local canal. Just a pleasant day out there and not too hot.

I have added four photographs to Google Earth via the Panoramio website with some of the local sites I see on my walks. I would add many more except it takes so long for them to be accepted that it doesn't seem worth it. Hope Google can get this moving a bit. In the meantime I will stick flickr.com.

Hi Klongwalker

Love the site. There's something fascinating about klongs, although I haven't seen as much of them as I'd like in my time in Bangkok.

Do you know if there's a reliable map of all waterways in Bangkok and indeed, Thailand? Perhaps from the Military Survey department?

All the best

Philip Rowell.

Hello Philip

I haven't seen any up-to-date maps except for some posters that the Bangkok Metropolitan Authority have put up showing local cycle routes. Might be worth asking them. I tend to use Google Earth to find the footpaths. Recently we have been walking a large canal out near Kasemsart University.
