Bangkok

Ok I’m gonna be brutally honest with my opinion about Bangkok, cause what’s the point on having a personal blog if you’re not gonna write exactly what you think right?
Dirtiest place I’ve been for a while, enormous amount of sick people on the streets, severe poverty everywhere, no sanitary regulations, extreme dense population, horrible traffic, are among the things that come to mind when I think of Bangkok.
Don’t get me wrong I really appreciate traveling and getting to know different cultures but I don’t know, I kept waiting for something to wow me and that kinda never happened.

The Grand Palace, yes, never seen something like it, gold everywhere, but imagine 10,000 tourists taking a selfie at the same time and it also seemed a bit too Disney-ish for me, like completely restored to wow tourists. Not really fun either seeing such luxurious palace and then seeing people dying a few steps outside.

     

   
The King

Ok, pretty disturbing for me that people here, WORSHIP the king and are obsessed with him, they literally set up altars everywhere and pray to him as if he was some sort of god, they even call him papa-dad. I guess what bothers me is that it doesn’t seem as if the king has done a lot for this place in the last 80 years in order for it’s people to worship him like they do (and yes, he is one of the wealthiest single royal person in the world)

Floating Market

I had seen a million photos and was really excited to visit, it’s an hour and a half ride to get there, once you arrive you pay to get in a boat so you can float around the market, that is if you are able to move! There are so many tourists and boats that you mainly stay in one spot until the boats are able to make their way through.

   
    
 Food 

Have yourself some traditional thai food and a wonderful massage cause that about sums up what I did like about this place. I had an amazing massage at the Banyan Tree Hotel where we stayed at, but even so the hotel is not as good as other Banyan hotels. Nahm and Vertigo Restaurants are OK places to dine.

  
   
    
 Don’t wanna seem rude or anything, if you’re ever in Thailand, I guess there are a lot of other places that would be better to visit, like beaches and mountains! This just did nothing for me.
