Identify Thai ground features

Hi all

Flew into BKK a while ago and noticed quite a lot of strange crescent shaped features on the ground. My initial thoughts were it was industrial or farming production of some sort.

Anyone Thai-based who can shed some light on the mystery?



Thanks
John

Wanna give me the LAT/LONG?
My best guess would be the solar cell production farmland perhaps?

Chinese grave sites, each one is about 5m across and a mound about 2m high.

Thais get burnt in Temples.

Thanks... I went back on to Google Earth and found a ground level photo and they did appear to be graves.

Thanks for the info. Cheers

Me thinks that is nuclear facility enriching uranium; possibly with researchers from Thammasat University maintaining that they were for research only.

Kinte, you nut case! Are you trying to get the USAF airborne stealth drones to bomb that area or are you instigating the IDF to launch a pre-emptive strike? Sheeesh...........

Now you see why it is best not to just make a guess. It can be very misleading.
