Reflections on the Grind

Bangkok

with 3 comments

Bangkok Post columnist Jessada Tandhasetti wrote a good article on the state of Bangkok. We both feel that Bangkok is a dirty city with horrific traffic systems and regulations. Low quality of life.

I’ll wait and see if Apirak can make Bangkok better like he promised. He already had four years to do it and he failed. It saddened me that, in the last election, people refused to give a new candidate a chance.

  1. Bangkok definitely has lots of rooms for improvements. It’s however one of the best cities to live in, or at least for a visit.

    • Well, I agree with Mike. Bangkok is still the best city, regardless the dirt and traffic chaos, I mean it is so Bangkok. For some people it’s dirt, for others like me it’s also complex urban chaos that makes this city so vibrant and energizing. Do we really want a super efficient, sterile city like Singapore or what ever developed city? Maybe for the sake of choice you guys are right in improving Bangkok so that we have more places to escape noise and pollution and be more productive (in terms of getting from a A to B) but please never ever aim at becoming a boring place like those German cities or what role-model-cities are out there.

  2. Thanks for the comments, Mike and Michael. You are right: imperfections can sometimes make a city an exciting place to be in.
