Bangkok was the first proper foreign city I travelled to and it changed my life.It was my first taste of a world so completely different from my own. An enormous and vibrant city, Bangkok is bustling with a population of 8 million people and multi-coloured taxis, tuktuks and scooters hooning in every direction.

Bangkok is unique from others as it’s a city of contrast. On one side is the blatant poverty, with beggars lining the streets, limbless people, babies on newspapers… it shocked me to my very core. With this side is also ‘sin city,’ showcasing an abundance of ‘ladyboys’, strip bars, prostitution, and ‘ping pong’ shows. Yes it has a dark side, but there is also a wonderful light side to it too. Bangkok is rich in culture; the Thai are Buddhists and are to date the friendliest and most genuinely happy people I have ever met. Their smiles were infectious, as well as having a vibrant street life Bangkok is dotted with ornate shrines and a stunning royal district, home to the magnificent Grand Palace and Wat Pho- the oldest temple in Bangkok which holds a giant gold reclining Buddha. It is a place you can find peace, which is a breath of fresh air from the outsides of the rushing city beyond. The boat-filled Chao-Phraya River feeds its network of canals, and you can be taken back to another time visiting the captivating floating markets.Eating and shopping is a national pastime in Bangkok and is a heaven for fresh fruit, spicy street food, markets and malls alike. The excellent prices and foreign exchange rate is the icing on the top.There are countless marvellous and unique sights and things to do in Bangkok. It is the city that truly solidified my never-ceasing wanderlust desire.

 

 
I’m  a travel blogger from New Zealand. Travelling has always been my biggest desire and I find nothing more exhilarating than exploring a new country and learning and experiencing different cultures, languages and people.I’ve had the pleasure of visiting 22 countries so far.Last year I lived in Germany and travelled as much of Europe as I could, and whilst abroad I wrote a small personal blog just for friends and family.Once home I found I missed writing so much, so I decided to start a proper blog this year and I’ve grown such a passion for it!
