Bangkok, or Krung Thep (City of Angels), is an international city with people from all different parts of the world. As you leave the airport towards the city the high-rise buildings are interspersed with green. There are giant billboards advertising the latest products that you can buy, from cars to houses, and fitness programmes to dental care. When you near the city, it becomes more built up and, although Bangkok is actually one of the dirtiest places I have been to, the fact that you see trees everywhere and can still see the sky, makes it appear that it is not as big and dirty as it actually is. On the streets, stallholders sell their wares, Bangkokians hanging out eating or drinking on a street corner, tourists, touts, and lady-boys; houses intermingled with malls and shops; Wats (temples) and statues commemorating times and people of old; Tuk-Tuks, taxis, buses and possibly the odd elephant . This is just a short introduction of a city that really never sleeps. It is vibrant and is a metropolis for the young and old, locals and foreigners alike. And I absolutely love the place! For me it really is a City of Angels!
