The General Post Office is a fascinating building - not all all what I expected.
"The General Post Office, also known as the Grand Postal Building, is a historic building in Bang Rak District of Bangkok. Built in 1940 on the former site of the British Legation, it was designed by architects Sarot Sukkhayang and Mew Aphaiwong in a mixture of Art Deco and International Style architecture which reflected the desire of the ruling People's Party to project a modern and powerful image of the state"
"The building is now being developed as the offices of the Thailand Creative & Design Center."

On venturing past this I came across what reminded me of the Design Museum in the UK (some 30 years ago).
It was certainly an interesting place.
I walked in and there was this display above and the staff were so welcoming I was quite taken.
There was the chance for a guided tour.
I made my way to the top in the lift and came across a coffee shop and a number of students - I felt really quite old.
The roof was then something quite special.
This was the view. There was an abundance of things to see and I would have to return to see it all - and the coffee was good...
Then there was a Stamp Market outside...
