Although old streets were preserved in some spots in Bangkok like Phraeng Phuthon Road, most buildings standing along the wide streets were modern. Of course, it was not always true that they were new. However, it was impossible to feel the Thai traditional atmosphere.
During walking Yaowarat Road near Chinatown, I found an old-fashioned building in a street corner. The architectures were built in Thai style. Its ground floor was a shop was its next level was a dwelling. It might be called the Peranakan style. When I saw this kind of architecture, I thought I could enjoy the exotic atmosphere if there were many buildings like this. Unfortunately, the building seemed not to be used anymore. The doors and shutters were closed tightly. And a stall was open just in front of it.
