Bangkok named most favourite leisure city by Business Traveller China magazine

Recommended Posts

IseThailand is a 3rd world trashpit, every vacant lot in Nonthaburi is filled with rotting plastic trashbags.. Rat infested lots.. To fix, someone plows the garbage into the soil, a better idea, of course, instead of picking it up in the first place .... The Chao Praya river is full of plastic trash that ends up in the sea.. There is an island near Bang sara,  Fox island to be exact, that has a 4' wall of plastic trash completely around it.... Paradise?  If you like garbage....

It's for sure the city of "Leisure" as for deafening noise and pollution I am not so sure,

but if that what they like good for them, I stick to my peaceful village where I deal

with true Thai people.

So now the game is up. The bosses of the Chinese business travellers now know their expense accounts are being spent on ladies of the night.

There is so much to do in Bangkok.... its a great city to live in. 

 

Could it be improved, absolutely... it could do with lots more, more parks, better public transport, better roads etc.

 

But for restaurants, getting around cheaply, activities for adults and kids, it's difficult to beat...  

Excellent post great to see positive and realistic post first thing 

in the morning....

Seriously shenzhen china and tokyo have a far better public transportation system im sure cheaper too. Not to mention more clean friendly better shopping and so on. More to do for kids and adults with the exception of no windows opporating systems and no google in china. But still thats only 2 places that are better then bkk and if i put a little more time into it i know i could easily name a few more. To say bkk is so great. If it was why in the hell am i sick do to constant stress while living here in bkk. Why am i contantly getting more and more grey hairs while here. A place that causes so much stress it makes you phyisically ill is not a great and top tier level place to visit or be in.

And how much did they pay to get this printed out? There are so many travel companies and websites, I bet if this Chinese magazine was not mentioned here no one would have heard of them.

Did they also pay mastercard for naming Bangkok as the most visited city in the world 3 times in a row? oh yeah of course they did because mastercard needed the money 😂

Everywhere has good and bad. Traffic is my major gripe in Bangkok, then I go else where and get stuck in traffic. 

 

People hate Bangkok because they want to... they look for things to hate to make their undeveloped slice of dusty backwardness in someway seem better - they'll quote too many malls, too many condos, who buys all this designer stuff anyway? etc, who needs so many starbucks etc... they are partially right but that's the cost of not living in a backwater which has no decent hospitals or education facilities. Don't agree, the Hosptials and Schools in any other province of Thailand and many regional capitals cannot compete with Bumrungrad and Patana School... 

 

 

Could start by improving driving laws. I’m not even 3 years here yet and already seen over 5 motorbike / car accidents in person. In two of them i know people died. Just a few days ago a motorbike fell while driving fast here on nut. Luckily I don’t think the owner died but rip the motorbike.

They must have been blinded by all the pollute air. As someone else said fake news. All BS

Some days you cant even see the buildings. Hope in their report they advise everyone to bring their own gas mask.
