• Short Summary

    Great footage of life on the busy Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.

  • Description

    Bangkok, Thailand.

    Various shots on the Chao Phraya River; people washing themselves and their clothes in the water; lots of people on boats; boats moored alongside a busy market place on the river bank. Great general shots of life on the river in the city.

    Several shots of cockfighting in a courtyard; apparently staged for tourists with no bloodshed. Still very unpleasant though; a few men crouch around to watch. When the fight has stopped, a man brushes one of the cockerel's feathers.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
