It was a incredible day when there were really many people attending this Bangkok countdown event. Our approximation by eyes which we have see a lots of Chinese tourists as the bigger portion then follow by European / American tourists and some Indians and Japanese for pretty a little, and then Thai people are the most as they were local people. Many people take the BTS Skytrain and as well many by river ferries.
Since we knew in advance already regarding to get a chance of capturing wide enough angle view of the whole countdown firework, due to the current location, we’re expected that firework will be perpendicularly overhead level of us, as well a lots of people going to walk around during the new year minutes. That why we decided to capture the ground level atmosphere photos of festival as much as possible, and shoot the firework as video.
