“This high energy city loves neon and noise, chaos and concrete, fashion and the future. But look beyond the modern behemoth and you’ll find old-fashioned village napping in the shade of a soi (lane). It’s an urban connoisseur’s dream: a city where the past, present and future are jammed into a humid pressure cooker.” Lonely Planet
“You can observe remnants of urban river life by boarding a Chao Phraya Express boat at any riverside pier.” Lonely Planet
What are your impressions of Bangkok?
We only had 2 days to explore, but found Bangkok more hot, humid and expensive than Chiang Mai even feeling like we were in a foreign country from Chiang Mai.
We arrived this week in Busan, South Korea and have been kind of busy. Photos to come and Expense Reports too next time I Meet You in the Morning!
