These are a good start at street photography - I can feel the atmosphere of the place. My advice (if I can give such as I haven't done much street photography myself) is to aim for the someone's face and expression - if you combine person's look and emotion with the surrounding you'll get very powerful combination.

I see a bunch of people cut in half, obscured by objects or just doing random everyday things. I don't see a story, or anything of much interest. Work on your composition, look for the obscure event, shoot just after sunset to get a combination of daylight and electric light. Shoot, shoot, shoot then shoot some more. Number the images that you post so its easier to comment on specifics.

Welcome, Suradeer.
Do you live in Bangkok? If so, you are quite lucky.
It is a fascinating, busy city and great for pictures.
Since you are starting with some street photography, let me suggest a couple of things.

Post only a very few pictures in each thread so that people can concentrate their comments.
Number the pictures so people can refer to them easily.

Don't just post anything that is in focus and well exposed, post the pictures are are interesting, colorful or unusual.
Before you press the shutter, decide what is interesting then compose, expose and edit to make that important.

If you don't know what is important in your photo, the viewers won't either.

I look forward to seeing more pictures of Bangkok.

I see potential in these images, you're seeing things and shooting them, what most could benefit from is a much tighter crop. You want to keep in as much of the location content in some, but others could be cropped up tighter on just the people. There are some nice smaller images to taken out of these big picture images.
