The usual traffic chaos of the rush hour was made intense after a heavy downpour on Tuesday night. In fact, even the longest elevated Bangkok skywalk was not spared.
Facebook user Phudsachar Phongsay posted on Tuesday a video of a flooded skywalk. Her video, however, started to spread like wildfire on social media just today.
In the video, people can be seen clinging to the railings of the Bangkok skywalk whilst tip-toeing along its elevated edge as they desperately try to avoid getting wet.
“Bangkok, the city with the perfect life,” said Phudsachar Phongsay sarcastically.
The video received more than 7,000 reactions and has been shared more than 13,000 times at the time of writing.
Connecting BTS Udomsuk and BTS Bang Na, the 1.7-kilometer skywalk is said to be the longest in Bangkok. It is meant to be a way of helping people to avoid the sun, traffic, and yes, the rain.
