According to news articles, The Architecture of HRH Prince Narisara Nuvattiwongse and Wat Suthat Thepwararam Ratchaworamahawihan and the Great Swing will be put in the list soon.

Phra Pathom Chedi, The Great Pagoda is unlikely according to Wikipedia locals seem to against the idea.

I visited Kanchanaburi and the death railway with the Hellfire Pass. Would be good addition to the list. Represents the suffering of locals and POWs during WWII and reminds us that the war not only took place in Europe.

The Architecture of HRH Prince Narisara Nuvattiwongse

One of Prince Narisara Nuvattiwongse definitely include the famous Marble Temple. Interesting that from the list, 4 sites are in Bangkok's old town and within walking distance, Wat Suthat, Wat Ratchanaddaram, Chao Phraya River CL, and Prince's architecture. If nomination succeed, Bangkok will be new Beijing or Seoul in terms of WHS!

These nomination maybe develop from the Ko Rattanakosin, former tentative list.
