Film of old Bangkok

Jump to last reply

It's certainly interesting to see Bangkok just before the 1932 revolution, and anybody who has been here will recognize the sights. You may wish to watch it with the sound off if you're easily offended. The narrator spouts some rather politically incorrect, as well as inaccurate, stuff.
