Is Bangkok a good place for a new Buddhist?

Yeah, I took a look at their brochure in 2011 but the lack of attractions and thrill rides back then was a disappointment. Sure, learning levitation and astral planing sound great and all but is the lack of outdoor food vendors across the 3.2km property worth the price of admission.

 

I kid.

Buddhistin, Thailand is the wrong place to learn. It's like going to Soi Cowboys looking for a nice girl for a wife.

This is one of the most famous temples in Bangkok, but note, the abbot did a runner and no one knows where he is!

For years and years, this place has been known as a cult.  Yep, the head man did a runner after being asked about millions of baht gone missing.  It was a really fun adventure of them trying to bring him into court.  Ha ha ha .

Converted from Buddhism to Bathism.

OP, why do you feel you have to have a religion? Why choose Buddhism from all the hundreds or other religions? 

 

You only have one life and you will waste a lot of you energy and time learning a new foreign religion for no good reason.

 

Have confidence in yourself ...you don't need religion. You can meditate, relax, get balance in your life without religion.

You asked if Bangkok was a good place for a new Buddhist.  Well, yes and no.  There are a lot of places around Bangkok to study Buddhism, but lots of distractions also.  But, good place to start.
