Ugly or not, Bangkok certainly is more 'electric' than most other cities I visited so far.

Girls of other nationalities are welcome, though.

It seems it's one of those things which are 'illegal' yet never actually enforced.

I guess the term 'girls' in this case means not all girls but only 'entertainment' girls lol

It seems in Thailand there are some English terms having a very specific meaning which at first looks so innocent

I know. I didn't mean it like that, it was one of my usual lame jokes that nobody gets.

Well, it destroys a view and creates a different one instead. I personally like its monumentality.

I may be in a minority but I love the new urban landscape formed by the infrastructure of the Skytrain. That's how a city should look: bridges, flyovers, concrete, roads and movement all around, not least above. Bangkok is a perfect illustration of what the term 'city' means to me.

This is one of my favorite locations:

Double decked Skytrain bridges, big road, cars, loads of people, noise, massive shopping centers on the sides... yeah, this is what I call city


P.S. I got your joke, just wasn't too sure if everyone else did

I love Bangkok, although I don't live within what is technically BKK but I live close enough to call it my city :P
