Global Tumbleweed in Bangkok, Vlog 8

The first real thought I ever gave to Bangkok was a few years ago when a best friend's boyfriend moved to Bangkok for a summer internship. I did a little research and had decided the city was a cesspool of degenerates, prostitutes, and low-quality living. This judgement was completely based on a documentary I watched on Netflix with my roommate.

Fast forward two (maybe three?) years, and I found myself assigned to the questionable city for three months. My job was to promote the country's booming industries and learn about the culture and resiliency of the Thai people.

I am so happy I was able to live in this Southeast Asian metropolis.
Bangkok is the country's city of opportunity, and as a result, 8 million people live in this city (that's the same amount as NYC).

And just like NYC, in this city almost anything goes.

Things to Do:
Shop at Chatuchak Market
Walk down Khao San Road
Drink on Sukhimvit, Soi 11
Take a boat ride down the Chao Phraya River
Learn some Thai
