suvarnabhumi, bangkok

September 2, 2008

Our trip back to KL this time took us through Suvarnabhumi, the not-so-new anymore Bangkok airport. Without the state of emergency that has now been declared in Bangkok, all seemed very calm and peaceful.

I found the terminal reminiscent of Charles de Gaulle’s Terminal 2E, refreshing and clean, if a little on the sterile side. My favourite was an ultra-bling golden mini-pagoda at one end (you can see it peeking out from behind the board in the photo above). Not quite according to the architects brief, I suspect!

    I love the circular flow of the photo. I can see the pagoda in the back. It’s all about the details and in this photo there is just a wonderful balance with the elements. Nice work! 🙂
