Bouncing in Bangkok

ENG

One word to describe Bangkok? A pinball!

You are the ball shot into the city and the impact is simply traumatic: chaos, traffic, overpopulation and hot. Too hot.

You bounce from side to side, and the more you turn around the more you realize how many wonders are hidden in the cloud of smog. Majestic royal buildings, temples set among the palaces, crazy  tuk tuks that color the streets, street food stalls at every corner, markets sprouting everywhere where you can find any kind of goods.

Taste all you can, get up at dawn, immerse yourself in the crowd, contracted any price and always smile: is the best way to make a contact with the Thai population.

Una parola per descrivere Bangkok? Un flipper!

Voi siete la pallina che viene lanciata improvvisamente dentro la città e l’impatto è traumatico: caos, traffico, sovrappopolazione e caldo. Tanto caldo.

Rimbalzate da una parte all’altra e più girate più vi accorgete di quante meraviglie si nascondono nella nube di smog. Maestosi complessi reali e templi incastonati tra i palazzi, tuk tuk impazziti che colorano le strade, banchi di street food ad ogni angolo, mercati che spuntano ovunque dove trovare qualsiasi tipo di merce.

Assaggiate tutto quello che potete, alzatevi all’alba, immergetevi nella folla, contrattate qualunque prezzo e sorridete sempre: è il miglior modo di entrare in contatto con la popolazione thailandese.

  • […] and their love for good food is well perceived also by the most ramshackle stalls of street food in Bangkok. Indeed, from personal experience, it is probably from these street restaurants that you can taste […]
