Odd, contradictory, mysterious, stunning, noisy, hectic, colorful, inspiring, magnificent, spacious, sacred, monumental, powerful, epic, Asian.
A city with which everyone can develop different relationships, but obviously, this is a city that will not leave anyone indifferent.
Someone will arrive and be just happy to walk around the city, check the main tourist routes and guides’ recommendations.
Someone will arrive and won’t be able to understand what is so special about it, what triggers people so much and goes deep into their hearts.
Someone will come again and again to try to unravel the secret of this very mysterious and very atmospheric city.
And someone, on the contrary, will find himself or herself there, and decide to change the background for eternal summer, palm trees, ubiquitous cheerful Thais, hawkers and a city of skyscrapers.
Everyone has his own way.

Benjakitti Park What Is It?
As an Asian metropolis, Bangkok has a super-huge agglomeration and an intense rhythm of life.
It is actively developing and offers its guests and residents new locations as a place for leisure time or permanent residence.
One such place is the Benjakitti (or Benchakitti) Park.
This is a giant green park area, the final construction of which was completed in 2022.
The park has around 2 km walking or running path, so it offers a big territory for jogging, cycling, yoga or just for quiet and relaxing walks around.
It is located in the business district of central Bangkok and opens a nice background view on the city skyscrapers.
Often there are great deals with flights.
For example, a round-trip flight from Abu Dhabi to Bangkok can sometimes be as low as $370!
