Bangkok, Thailand

This is definitely the most unique place I’ve been so far, for it is the first non-European place I have got the chance to see. The first thing that comes into my head is that Bangkok is a city of contrasts. I could see the poor and the rich living next to each other; it is very cheap, lacks infrastructure, but, at the same time, has a lot of skyscrapers. Even though I am not the biggest fan of Asian food (actually I am not at all), Thai food was still an interesting experience. Also in Bangkok, I finally understood what cultural shock means, although not in a bad way. There were plenty of magnificent temples and palaces, for instance, the Chakri Maha Prasat Hall, Grand Palace; or unique cultural additions to places one would not expect, such as the Suvarnabhumi Airport. While Bangkok may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is certainly worthy of being visited by anyone in their lifetime.
