Before I touched down Bangkok this time, I wasn’t really keen on writing a blog about this city. I thought, what new I can tell people about this place which hasn’t been said before. Suggested by a friend, I chose to discover the city for what it’s not known or not so famous. When you speak of Bangkok, majority of people think it’s a place, good only for inexpensive shopping, nightlife and sex. To experience the real life of Bangkok and uncover the hidden spots, I wander through the local neighbourhood. I went behind the curtains to experience the backstage life of this city.
Sawasdeeka, a Thai word which means Hello, but it isn’t just a word, it is a tradition being followed for centuries and you can actually feel the warmth and welcoming of Thai people in their way of greeting. Bangkok is the modern face of Thailand, but can’t hide the traditions and values of Thai culture.
MY PERSONAL GUIDE TO THE INSIDE
Bangkok isn't a place that you will go gaga for immediately, unless you are from a lonely planet. At first I discovered this city proudly chaotic, uproarious, and loaded with people. It is elusive a vacant spot in this city. Be that as it may, after a careful watch, I admired the warmth, humbleness, and the positive spirit of this place.
Let me take you through my journey and how I discovered Bangkok: Who is Bangkok ?
BANGKOK IS COZY : Where did I sleep?
This city comfortably accommodates both, the luxury travelers and the bag packers. I stayed in a 5* during my last visit in 2017, and this time I chose to stay in a hostel so I could meet new people.
