HUA LAMPHONG: THE DARK SIDE: Ghosts, Brothels, Steam Trains, Street Life & Railway Life Plus more…

The dark & bright side of Hua Lamphong. After dark this area takes on a different guise. Gone are the tourists, commuters and traffic. There’s a desperation in parts of this area and the street life & railway communities open your eyes to the reality of life for many. In the past this area was well known for prostitution, drugs and brothels but that doesn’t mean it no longer exists in this area. The railway communities are supposedly rife with criminality, with gambling, drugs and chicken fighting being the apparent activities. I never like to say for sure, I just say what I read or hear about, but it still makes for a fascinating look around.
