Bangkok hit me like a brick. Jet lagged, at 6 am, first thing I remember was the huge rat crossing the street in front of me. He was the size of a cat and he was not alone. I experienced Khao San Road at its worst, when all party people went to sleep. City of angels? Really?!
I was looking for something more beautiful, something more exciting and something more dangerous. So after thirteen hours in the back of an airplane, three dumb movies, two plastic meals and absolutely no sleep I was finally in Bangkok. It was hot and chaotic, but Bangkok thrills with energy. The jigsaw puzzle of skyscrapers, temples and colorful vehicles. This city is full of contradictions, busy metropolis during the day and at dawn Buddhist monks clad in orange robes filling the streets. There were plenty of interesting, touring possibilities to fit just about every interest. Bangkok may have the best street food in the world. I was not afraid to try the weird stuff, scorpions were very delicious. Thai food is unrivaled for spice and taste. It was really fun during the nights, then this city is fully awake. Sleepless nights and hot days. After Bangkok, I had to spend a few days on the beach to recover from it all.
TIP: Sky Bar rooftop at Lebua State Tower offers one of the best views in the city. Famous by hosting the Hollywood movie Hangover II.
