The Bangkok cliche 


A well known, and old cliche is the saying that if you let Bangkok get under your skin, you will never be able to fully leave. I can only confirm that this old saying is so very true. The first time you arrive, you will probably hate it because of the massive pollution, never-ending traffic jams, and the constant flow of people everywhere. But, once you get passed all that, there is something about this city that truly makes it hard to leave. 

Once Bangkok is under your skin, Bangko has got you in captivity. 

The below image may be able to show you exactly why I feel like that. This is the view from my penthouse suite at Chatrium Riverside next to Chao Phraya River, the River of Kings, at just after 6 in the morning.
