Visions of Bangkok : Thailand

Thailand was my first stop in Asia, where I spent over 3 months, on and off. It’s been 14 years since I left, and did not have a chance to visit back until this year. I was curious to see what I’ll remember and how I’ll feel about things.

To my surprise, there’s very little I could remember. Either I managed to completely block it out, or Bangkok changed a lot. Walking through Khao San road, nothing seemed familiar. What ever happened to the adventure street with all the dirt, noise, and cheap travel? it’s not like a an international tourist resort area. I’m also quite sure that I previously visited the temples, the palace, the river, yet I remembered none of it.

Which is only to say that I enjoyed it a lot, as if for the first time. Bangkok is an insane world city, filled with impossibilities and contradictions. I honestly had a hard time making sense of it all. What the hell is going on here? Such a crazy place, I feel like I need longer to really get to the bottom of things.

Regardless, Bangkok is different. I dare say there’s nothing quite like it. Every area offers a new perspective, every attraction a different joy ride. Take China Town. It’s the craziest China Town you can imagine, more Chinese than in China, paradoxes in every corner. I have made my way through some dense China Towns, but the Bangkok one got my head spinning, my spirit longing to get away back to the quiet. Many more other tales to share.

 

In the meanwhile, before we go deep, let’s start with general impressions.

I give you, my photowalk visions of impossible Thai Bangkok…
