We all heard that Asian countries are developing cities and skyscrapers at a rapid pace. However, seeing it in person gives more meaning to that statement. So, Bangkok is big and about the same size as the city of New York City. Yet, I never have seen so many cars in bumper-to-bumper traffic in my life. The beauty in the chaos is what I love about Bangkok Thailand.
After I went to see my first Buddhist temple, I was completely out of energy. The sun of Bangkok Thailand mixed with jetlag, I had to go back and sleep for hours. Somehow, my body sleep schedule started to match the local time. The sun was setting, staying up watching all those marvel movies on the plane actually paid off. The sunsets here are so beautiful, it reminded me of my time watching the sunsets by the Nile river.
Getting back to my accommodation ended up being a journey. So, picture yourself tired and you are just itching to lay on a bed. Out of nowhere, your tiredness made you miss your stop and you were 9 stops aways. Yeah, that was me. Like a drunken person, I stumbled off the train and started walking toward what I thought was the opposite platform. In a zombie state, I sat down and counted the many stops I missed not realizing that I was nowhere familiar.
Not evening looking at the stop’s name I got off. I was tired and was only thinking about laying on a bed. It wasn’t until I was off the train that I saw the mistake I just did. I went on another line and I have no idea where I was at. However, I was super tired and just couldn’t do another train ride. A taxis cab became my favorite option. Found a cab, gave my address and I was out. I woke up around 30 mins later to find us stuck in the infamous Thailand traffic.
Seeing Thailand in a taxi is a must-do. You get to see the city in a whole new light. Bangkok is big like really big. What was about 9 stops took us almost an hour. Seeing the buildings, car traffic, and the people made me realize how similar this city is compared to New York City. I used to think Thailand was underdeveloped. However, it’s very modern. Being the hottest Capital City in the world with great culture and people. I can see why Bangkok, before COVID, was the most visited city in the world. It is world-class without world-class prices.

Bangkok is a truly amazing city. Instead of a cab, try out a tuk tuk! It is cheaper and throws in some added adventure 🙂
i mentioned the cab because of i had some bad experiences with tuk tuk. they trying to make me buy some suites. I appreciate the comment and the suggestion 🙂
I had no idea the scale of Bangkok, but it’s mind-boggling it took you an hour just to go nine stops in a taxi! I figure it’s from the sheer traffic of the city. Bangkok looks stunning and very-modern, and your photos has completely changed my perception on the Thai city to potentially merit a trip there some day. 🙂
Thank you so much! yes, bangkok is truly worth the trip. I hope you to go soon! just watch for some of the scams!
Omg yes! I miss bangkok so much, been there in 2018 I wish I could come back soon.
Same! it’s such a beautiful city! i really enjoyed. Hope you get to go soon! keep safe!
Hoping to visit Bangkok ☺
