Bangkok changes colour

Orange, the colour of dress worn by bike taxi riders, swamps streets left by Red Shirt protesters.


    It has been nearly three months since Thailand's anti-government 'Red Shirt' protesters were driven from the streets of Bangkok.

    Their passengers range from business leaders to ordinary workers.
