That'll sort out the air pollution .. 'till it dries out .. 

 

unfortunately not, i read a scientific report, not a made up thai newspaper report, that said, unfortunately, the pollution particles are too small to be affected by rain.

Modern civilization (10 million strong) trying to take over a patch of tropical river estuary, and wondering why it doesn't work out like in Western countries.

Be fair! they were 30 years late getting started on construction due to the usual ineptitude! if it was 50 years old it wouldn't be so bad.

The moral of the story is: Never buy a used car in Thailand, chances are it's been submerged on more than 1 occasion!

Bangkok was once called "Venice of the East" due to all the klongs, right? Get rid of them and this is what you get with tropical rains.

The city streets flooded long before any klongs were filled.  And much worse than today.
