Bangkok

I used to hate Bangkok more than any other destination I visited. The pollution, crowds and traffic, I couldn’t take it. Yet the more I think about it, the more I want to revisit this wild city.

I never gave this a place to start with as soon as I landed, but I have spoken to so many people who were in the same mindset as me, but the longer they stayed the more they loved it. Maybe that’s where I went wrong, I was too young and had too little time to really appreciate it. Bangkok is not know for its activities but more so its wild nightlife and chaotic character.
