Old structures disappearing
- March 8, 2004
Songkhla's Old Town has over 100 beautiful and unusual structures clustered along a few narrow streets. Recently, one atmospheric cluster of wooden huts (above) located on a prominent corner across from a wat disappeared and was replaced by a sterile parking lot and cement buildings (below). Even before the huts were removed the front yard was being used as a dumping place for used oil (some of this is visible in the above photo).
2Bangkok.com recently took over 200 photos of the historic buildings in Songkhla's Old Town and will be posting them soon.
