Bangkok Contrast Defined

Chaos and Serenity in the most unusual places

Taxi, Tuk-Tuk, food, massage, alcohol, drugs, garbage, neon lights

And out of nowhere… A green calm landscape,

A haven in the middle of the chaos

Calmness…

Birds calling and singing just for your enjoyment,

incense fills the air,

flowers bloom,

a monks soothing chant,

a calming feast for all your senses.

And then you walk back to the chaos!

The dirt! The grime! Cars are honking! People are yelling!

Another feast this time.

Exhausted, bewildered, amazed and awe-struck.

You leave the city –

Longing for more yet longing to escape
