Fascinating Photos Capture Street Scenes of Bangkok in the Early 1970s

Bangkok is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. The city occupies 1,568.7 square kilometers (605.7 sq mi) in the Chao Phraya River delta in central Thailand. Bangkok is an extreme primate city, dwarfing Thailand’s other urban centers in both size and importance to the national economy.

The city is an international hub for transport and health care, and has emerged as a centre for the arts, fashion, and entertainment. It is known for its street life and cultural landmarks, as well as its red-light districts. The Grand Palace and Buddhist temples including Wat Arun and Wat Pho stand in contrast with other tourist attractions such as the nightlife scenes of Khaosan Road and Patpong.

Bangkok is among the world’s top tourist destinations, and has been named the world’s most visited city consistently in several international rankings. These fascinating photos were taken by Nick DeWolf that show street scenes of Bangkok in 1972.
